Product Description


"a useful addition to the kitchen." Best of British "... Stephen Beaumont's superb offering ... it is brimming with all sorts of information and morsels on this marvellous drink." Choice "it is an authoritative exploration of the phenomenon of beer and food matching" The Caterer "This beautifully produced book by Canadian writer Stephen Beaumont covers everything you could ever need to know when beer and food intersect. Whether that is from a historial perspective or a look at the Japanese Izakaya. There are profiles of beer personalities, from chefs to brewers, pairing tips destination guides and recipes. It's a must-buy book." Original Gravity % "What a great gift this book would make for the beer lover in your life. ... It's really quite fascinating, even for those who aren't connoisseurs." Waitrose Weekend 'Really rather good... Stephen Beaumont has created a well researched and well written book that is a must for people who are beginning to discover what beer can really be and will make a rather nice little present for the beer geek in your life to add to their library' Campaign for Really Good Beer "Beer is back on the table. In this sumptuous feast of a book, Stephen Beaumont shows that in many countries restaurants as well as pubs and bars now offer beer and food pairings as naturally as they do matches for wine and food." Roger Protz 'a great book for the beer-swilling, budding chef' -- Brew Geekery 'Stephen Beaumont is one of the most incisive, elegant and satisfying writers on beer and food in the English language' Adrian Tierney-Jones

HASH(0xa4ed5864) out of 5 stars Beer and food? What else do you need? Jan. 10 2016

The title is a great description as it covers a variety of topics, from beer styles, to history of beer and food, cooking with beer and beer and food pairing. I'm a novice when it comes to cooking with beer, but the recipes are ones that I would feel comfortable enough to make. It includes insight and recipes from a number of different chefs with different backgrounds. I haven't tried the recipes yet, but am salivating over giving all of them a try.
HASH(0xa4ed87d4) out of 5 stars Great book on a great topic July 10 2016

Stephen Beaumont has written about beer for over two decades. In this lavishly illustrated and well written book he tackles beer and food. He begins by highlighting the key ingredients of beer and then gives a simplified overview of beer styles that is more than adequate for all but the most committed beer geek. Beaumont introduces the basic principles of beer and food pairing with a chapter on beer and food before the 21st century where he reviews such institutions as the British pub, the German beer hall, Belgian and Czech cuisine, American bar food and the Japanese izakaya. A chapter of beer and food pairing includes interviews with industry professionals. A chapter on cooking with beer lays down basic principles then in a large chapter on Beer Cuisine and Recipes he has several well-known chefs provide recipes that use beer as a key ingredient. Beaumont concludes with very useful beer and food pairing charts. Beaumont does a good job blending theory with practical, hands on examples. Another gem by a noted beer author.
