Beer Gourmet Evening

On December 1st the chef school will be holding their monthly gourmet evening, but instead of the normal wine and food pairings, this one will be pairing the food with our favourite drink, beer!

You can find the menu for the night below, and if you are interested in attending please contact John Little on 031 777 1566.

 

AMUSE BOUCHE
Sushi roll with soya and wasabi
Beer Pairing
African Moon Impala Light 4.5% abv
Well hopped both with bittering and flavour hops to follow the English pale ale style.
Brewer John Little

 

FIRST COURSE
Mini fish pie with an asparagus beurre blanc
Beer Pairing
Quills Kalahari Gold 5% abv
A light golden beer with caramunich malted barely responsible for the malty undertones. Lots of late addition aroma hops.

 

SECOND COURSE
Potato gnocchi with gorgonzola cream sauce
Beer Pairing
African Moon Amber Ale 6% abv
A rich full bodied beer with strong opening toasted flavours. This beer will age very well and will be very interesting in a year or two.

 

THIRD COURSE

Beer Pairing
Vienna Lager 5% abv
Clear lager character using Vienna pale and carared malts with saaz hops to finish.

FOURTH COURSE
Free range pan seared beef fillet topped by soft yolk poached egg with strip fries served with a béarnaise sauce
Beer Pairing
African Moon BlackBuck Bitter 7.5% abv
Styled along a brown porter but with six malts and three hop types used not your average bitter. Mashed in at 68c to leave lots of residual sugars for mouth feel.
Brewer Walkin Froise

 

FIFTH COURSE
Hot chocolate pudding with house made strawberry ice-cream
Beer Pairing
Quills Black Dog bitter 6%
A very complex beer with seven malts and oats used to aid head retention. Styled on a traditional stout but with a lot more hops thrown in for good measure. Will age very well.
