Food & Beer Pairing: With Beer Raconteur Melissa Cole

345 1552047820

The worlds of beer and food are set to joyfully collide on this coming Wednesday, the 13th of March, at the Devonshire Cat. And a very special guest will be on-hand to guide you through an evening of food, beer and fun.

Award-winning author and all-round beer raconteur Melissa Cole is renowned for her extensive musings on the world's favourite drink, and her new book 'The Beer Kitchen' tells you everything you need to know about the art and science of cooking, and pairing with beer.

Featuring an abundance of mouthwatering delights such as beer-brined pork chops with blue cheese polenta, and quick chocolate pots with kriek-soaked cranberries, Melissa takes a refreshingly new look at cooking that'll have you reaching for your apron and cracking open a can of craft beer in no time.

The three-course menu for the evening on the 13th will take a generous helping of inspiration from 'The Beer Kitchen' but with a nice dose of Dev Cat charm thrown in. Have a gander at the full menu below to see what you can look forward to...
