No matter how you enjoy it, whether it is hoisting a tall one in celebration, coifing a Pilsner on a hot summer’s day, or sampling a rare, casked, imported brew, beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage on the planet. Paired with food, or used as an ingredient in recipes, beer adds depth and flavour to a wide range of dishes. Each beer presented in this visually stunning homage to hops has unique characteristics, and readers will learn how to appreciate the world’s most popular beverage in new ways. Featuring more than 100 brands ranging from craft and micro breweries to the bigger commercial labels, Beerlicious offers a host of gourmet ideas and beer-and-food pairings. Chef Ted Reader unleashes his unmatched creativity and innovation by customising the recipes within this book for each beer. Every recipe is accompanied by a full-colour photograph of the finished dish to demonstrate how beer-inspired food can be plated and served elegantly at home.
