Inspired a bit by the 2009 film ‘Julie and Julia’ about the French cooking doyenne shown over Christmas, we (Dea Latis) decided to put our culinary skills to use for the enjoyable advancement of beer with another of our favourite subjects, food. (It’s no accident that our tasting sessions always have a food theme. If only we could work in our third favourite subject; shoes! Ideas anyone?) Oh and thanks to @BadBeerPuns for the title….
At the same time, blow me, The Times published five beer recipes at the start of January by Tom Kerridge, he of the famous Hand and Flowers pub in Marlow – I say pub, but it’s a Michelin two star dining experience really. But a rare nod towards beer in the national press should not be ignored so, suitably inspired, we’re going to publish a recipe each month gleaned/stolen from various cookery writers and chefs. We’ll give them a go and report back but if, at the same time, you would like to get the pots and pans out as well or inspire us with your favourite beer-based recipes, we’d love to hear from you.
