Beer Dinner Menus

Posted March 10, 2013 | 11:00 am, by Mirella

I’ve had the pleasure of guiding a series of beer dinners in fine dining establishments over the past few months. While I’ve been pairing beer with food in a variety of contexts for years, until recently they have mostly taken place in private homes, at catered events or in pubs… It’s very exciting to me that higher-end restaurants are embracing the idea of bringing beer to the table. It opens the door for guests to see beer in a new […]

Beer and Food Pairing

Posted July 26, 2012 | 10:00 am, by Mirella

If there’s one thing that I might enjoy more than a straight beer tasting, it’s an opportunity to explore beer and food pairing. This year I’ve had the pleasure of working with two different chefs as part of the 2011-2012 season of the Ontario Brewer Podcast, pairing local craft beer with a range of foods. It’s been a delightful experience. Why Beer and Food Pairing is Fun Here are my two favourite things about food pairing: Even though there are a […]

I had to take a moment to share these fantastic recipes that chef Matt Kantor created for the latest Ontario Brewer Podcast. Beet Salad with the Red Leaf Lager Squash and Mushroom Salad with the Winter Ale Chocolate Cake with Winter Ale Caramel 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 […]

The first podcast of the new 2011-2012 season of Ontario Brewer was posted today. This year, we’re going to be focusing on pairing beer with food. We’ve enlisted four food specialists to help create fantastic food pairings for various Ontario Craft Brewers brands. Nickel Brook Beer & Cheese This first podcast features the brands of Nickel Brook, and the second part of the podcast (which will be released in two weeks) will feature cheese pairings suggested by Michael Simpson from Leslieville […]

As Pierre Levert sipped one of two Kolsch-style ales before him, he had no doubt which one was from Quebec. “I’m not chauvinist, but I prefer this one, because it has so much more flavour. There’s a lot more bitterness. It’s from Quebec for sure,”…


La bière à Toronto

Posted September 13, 2011 | 12:12 am, by nadine

C’est vrai que ça n’est pas du tout évident trouver des bières artisanales à Toronto. Pourtant, il y en a plusieurs disponibles; même si le centre-ville compte seulement quatre microbrasseries, en périphérie il y en a une bonne douzaine…  Pour dénicher un assortiment intéressant de bières artisanales à Toronto, il faut vraiment savoir où aller. Malheureusement, les macrobrasseries ont presque entièrement réussi à établir un duopole, et la majorité des locaux offrent une sélection pitoyable de bière. Dans le gros […]
