What, I hear you ask, is the best drink pairing for Mexican food? Surely the categorical answer is beer!

 

Mexican food is all about comfort, satisfying big flavours, rich melt-in-your-mouth slow cooked meats, spices that blow your skirt up, varieties of textures from crispy tacos to sloppy guacamole and getting messy!  Meat juice running down your chin, messy.  I wouldn’t fancy a glass of pinot blush with my tacos.

 

The great thing about beer with food is the variety of flavours, colours, textures and aromas that can complement as well as stand up to seriously flavoursome food.  Dark, caramel flavours with spice or meaty dishes. Light, delicate beers to make the food sing and a bubbly texture to cleanse your palate ready for the next bite.

 

On 15/16/17th September I’m partnering with YaDa Chef for a 3 day residency where we are presenting a delicious 10 course Mexican tapas menu paired with 4 superb beers chosen by myself (naturally).  There are only 30 tickets for each night so I really hope you can join us.

If you like pizza and love beer (and who doesn’t) then I strongly suggest you snap up your tickets for the Supperclub I am running on Thursday.

Argentinian Pizza and Beer Supperclub

Argentinian Pizza and Beer Supperclub

This takes your standard Pizza Express margarita to a totally new level… all individually hand made, packed with flavour and served with an Argentinean flair! Think of Oli as the Messi of the culinary world.  And he can sing!

3 courses and 3 beers for £30 with the option to ‘go large’ for an additional course and beer for £40.

You will be treated to a tutored beer tasting with each course where we can really get our lips round the tastiest beer and pizza combinations followed by a  sing-song with Oli as he whips out his guitar to bring down the curtain.

For tickets and more info check out the event here.
