Epic Beer Dinners is the ultimate celebration of beer and food pairings. A glass of beer alone can be a splendid thing, but when incorporated into your cooking and served alongside the dish, it can be a symphony of flavor. Chefs Brooke and Luther Fedora explain the many ways beer can enrich and enhance a dish or an entire meal by providing a wealth of recipes and suggested pairings. Begin by exploring beer varieties and their characteristics; helping you to learn the various flavor notes that are the foundation for cooking and pairings.

A hoppy beer, for example, can add bite to a dish and is best for batters and light dishes, but is inappropriate for long simmering dishes where it instead strengthens the inherent bitterness of the dish. Malt, on the other hand, can add a mellow sweetness that is pleasing in stewed dishes and marinades. Have fun with dinner again, as you explore the wide variety of flavor profiles made possible through the addition of beer—from a traditional cassoulet laced with a malty dark ale to the lemony snap of a light Berliner Weisse paired with a lemon sorbet.

Recipes are broken down by various regions and seasons. Making it possible to drink your way through the calendar year with recipes and tips for various events and holidays, including: St. Patricks Day, New Year’s Eve, Mardi Gras, Christmas, and Oktoberfest. So grab yourself a pint and dig in!
