New uses for our favorite ingredient? We are SO there! Kent Rathbun kicks off tonight’s Brewtopia festival of beers at Central Market with a crash course in cooking with beer aptly named From Pint to Plate. This Cooking School event follows a Rahr sampling in the beer & wine department, so start there and work your way over to the Cooking School. Rathbun gives the evening’s beers (not sure which ones will be decanted for the cooking) both starring and cameo appearances in dishes like:
- Spicy Lamb Meatballs with Beer Braised Vidalia Onions & Ancho Barbecue Sauce (What beer will he use?)
- Grilled Chicken & Shishito Pepper Skewers with Jasmine Rice & Yellow Curry Sauce (I wonder where the beer will turn up.)
- Pan Roasted Striped Bass, Bourbon Cream Corn & Texas Peach Barbecue Sauce (Is the beer in the BBQ sauce?)
- Cinnamon-Chocolate Molten Cake with Cherry-Beer Ice Cream (Beer ice cream? what, what?)
The class runs from 6:30-9 and will cost you $65. At my last check there were still 13 seats available. Come on over and say hi!
