David Ort, author of the popular blog Food with Legs, gives us a lively and engaging introduction to craft beer as well as an across-the-board set of recipes that use craft beer as an ingredient. Starters and snacks, noodles and rice, seafood and meat and poultry, even beer cocktails and sweets and desserts make an appearance (Oak-Aged Old-Ale Ice Cream, anyone?). Dishes such as Beer Fondue and Currywurst are new twists on old classics. The Beer Pantry section has mouth-watering condiments: Pumpkin Ale Mustard and Wild Beer Vinegar, to name just two. Each recipe includes a recommendation for a specific Canadian craft beer as the beer ingredient. With profiles of craft-beer makers across Canada, <em>The Canadian Craft Beer Cookbook</em> is ideal for craft-beer experts and novices, and for anyone who delights in ramping up the taste of their favourite dishes with something different.
