I had to take a moment to share these fantastic recipes that chef Matt Kantor created for the latest Ontario Brewer Podcast.

As I mentioned in a previous post, this whole season of Ontario Brewer is about pairing beer with food. This month, the feature was on Great Lakes brewery and Matt came in to talk about his experience cooking with beer and pairing it with food.  (I’ve included the podcast below)

Matt prepared the three dishes above to go with the Great Lakes Red Leaf as well as their Winter Ale. All three are delicious, but the one that really got me excited was the Squash & Mushroom Salad. Not only because it was tasty but because I would have never thought to pair a salad with a bold winter ale.

One of my favourite things about the work that I do is that there are so many opportunities for collaboration and sharing and it is fantastic to hear someone else’s perspective on a beer and what could be done with it. As a Cicerone, I specialize in styles, service and food pairing but I prefer to leave cooking with beer to the chefs. Although I’ve known Matt for just about two years now, this is only the second opportunity we’ve had to collaborate. I love what he does with beer and look forward to tasting what recipes he comes up with for next year’s podcasts…
