Secret Recipe

 

MSN is currently running a list of “best beer recipes," culled from Epicurious. I’m immediately sucked in. I want to know how to make these beers! (And by the way, why didn’t anyone contact me about my newly-perfected saison recipe?)

The first recipe is not what I'd call a beer recipe at all. It’s a steak recipe that calls for beer in the marinade. Well how do you like that! The next recipe is for “Beer-Can Chicken.” Then “Mussels in Lager,” and “Fish and Chips with Malt Vinegar mayonnaise.” I get it. So I'm not actually going learn a new beer style. I thought this represented a watershed moment for Epicurious, wading into the crowded brewing waters.

This turns out to be only a minor disappointment. With my own considerable experience creating delicious and refreshing bubbly beverages and innumerable websites out there offering recipes and techniques galore, consulting a mainstream food website to get a beer recipe is for mere novices.

Did I tell you about my book idea, pairing homebrews with artisanal lardons? More on that after I take an in-depth course on "Lardons of the World."
