I’m so excited to share this with you: The Canadian Craft Beer Cookbook is in stores now! This is the first cookbook by David Ort, who has endless amounts of beer and food knowledge to share with you. He can explain in simple terms why beer should be cold when you’re making onion ring batter or what the history of the Radler is. David has a fantastic food blog called Food with Legs and also writes for Spotlight Toronto. The Canadian Craft Beer Cookbook is a cookbook that celebrates Canadian craft beer and highlights it in recipes both by including it in the ingredient list and by suggesting beers by local craft breweries for you to try with your creations. While some of the recipes are traditionally accompanied by beer, others will open your eyes to a new world where just about any food can be paired beautifully with the right beer.
Some of my favourite recipes from the cookbook are: Quick Pickled Radishes with Cream Cheese on Toast, No-Knead Soft Pretzels, Soba Noodle Salad with Sriracha Dressing (pictured below) Spicy Lamb Rogan Josh and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Spent Barley. Are you salivating yet?
All of the recipe photographs were taken by me and propped and styled by the amazing and magnetic Rossy Earle (try her hot sauce – it’s insanely addictive!).
