From Hail The Ale:
Beer and cooking are two of my favorite things (I also like long walks on the beach and don’t like mean people). My cooking has been nonexistent lately but The Ultimate Beer Lover’s Cookbook by John Schlimm may fix that. I haven’t had a chance to pick this up, but I do have some info from the author himself:
More than ten years in the making, The Ultimate Beer Lover’s Cookbook is an unprecedented collection of more than 400 food and drink recipes containing beer as a main ingredient. From scrambled eggs made with beer at breakfast and a cheese steak sandwich with onion rings or a beer burger and Chocolate Beershake for lunch, to a surf ‘n’ turf beer-infused combo of lobster and steak for dinner (and a midnight snack of chocolate-dipped strawberries), beer lovers can feast on brewskis at any time of the day. Every genre of food is included: appetizers, breads, soups and chili, salads, fruits and vegetables, sandwiches, sauces, marinades, beef, poultry, pork, wild game, stews, fish and seafood, past, and desserts.
With an introduction chronicling beer’s history, as well as hilarious beer quotes by the world’s most illustrious beer fans peppered amidst the recipes, The Ultimate Beer Lover’s Cookbook is a rousing tribute to a tasty icon more than 7,000 years in the making
Dave at Tailgating Ideas obtained a review copy and was kind enough to share his review. There’s another review at urbandaddy.
Have you read this? If so, what did you think?
Looks like a great book. But personally I’m waiting for the Homebrew Chef to release a book.
