Made Matches

March 7, 2010

Food and booze. A good combo, to be sure, though some specific pairings of the two are better than others. The mafia is going to start keeping track of what we feel are stand-out beer/wine/cocktail & food matches. Here are two that pleased my palette in the past month.

Schlafly Coffee Stout and Bananas Foster.

I had this pairing at a Schlafly beer dinner at the Boat House at Forest Park, and I wanted to marry it. Probably not legal to marry a food and beer pairing, but my point is that this is a match made in HEAVEN. The bitter coffee flavor with the sweet caramel banana goodness just totally did it for me. Yum. Try Alton Brown’s Bananas Foster recipe. Or this simple one.

New Belgium Trippel Belgium-style Ale & Aged Manchego Cheese

I took a beer/cheese pairing class through my work conducted bt New Belgium brew-master Lauren Salazar, and this pairing was amazing. Just try it!

Keep your eye on this blog for more Made Matches, and feel free to suggest your favorite drink/food pairings in the comments!
