Book Description

25 April 2014
Beer and Food is the definitive book about matching great food with the world's tastiest beers. Whether you have cooked dinner and don't know what beer to choose, or you've got a pale ale and can't decide what dish is best to serve with it, Beer and Food has all the information you could possibly need. It looks at the science of taste and how the ingredients in a brewery work with ingredients in a kitchen, examining the principles of matching beer and food, and looking at the flavours they share. Over the following pages, more than 35 beer styles are showcased, telling stories about the brews and picking perfect pairings for each, before delving into different cuisines and food types from around the world. Everything is covered, from sandwiches to curries to desserts and, of course, the best beers to enjoy with fast food. As well as the greatest pairings and suggestions of the best styles to try, there's a recipe section with over 50 dishes which use beer as an ingredient. With over 350 beers featured in total, chosen from all over the globe, it's the book for everyone who loves a drink and a tasty bite to eat.

Mark Dredge, a leading British beer writer, joins together beer and food in a book for beer fans and foodies who want to take their knowledge to the next step. Beer and Food is well written and useful enough to interest those whose knowledge has already reached the next step. Dredge covers the basics of beer, gives an overview of beer styles with a description of the major styles and representative examples of each style. He provides an easy to remember and apply formula for pairing beer with food - bridge, balance and boost where there is a bridge between the flavors in the beer and the food, the flavors of the beer and the food balance each other, or the flavors of one boost the flavors of the other. In his discussion of beer styles he provides example pairings for each style. Dredge follows his style discussion up with a chapter on matching food with beer and finishes with a chapter on recipes. His approach allows you to either start with a beer or a food and get a decent match. This book is worth having – it is well written, pleasantly illustrated and laid out, and the beer reviews use terms that do not require a trained palate to follow. He provides a beer flavor wheel in his discussion of beer styles that is more useful and easier to follow than most others I have seen. American readers may not be able to find all the beers he describes without purchasing an airline ticket. Dredge is British and getting to the continent to dig up great beer is fairly simple for him. Likewise, many of his American examples can be hard to find for those of us dwelling in the flyover zone. On the other hand, if you cannot find a Uneticke Pivo 12o Nefiltrovane to pair with your pork schnitzel, Dredge provides enough guidance to go to your local beer store and find a suitable substitute. The recipes show a British bent but many look worth trying and the measurements are in tbsp., cups, and oz. (with metric units in brackets for those who need them). Highly recommended.
