New years eve menu and pairings
« on: December 09, 2009, 01:04:22 PM »
For NYE I'm doing a tasting menu paired with beer and wine for each course. My FIL is taking care of the wine, so I just wanted to get some feedback on my choices for the beers.

The menu is

First: Tuna sashimi with daikon radish, cucumber, fresh grated ginger and a soy dipping sauce. Beer---Wit

Second: Pan seared scallops with bacon puree and brussel spouts. Beer---best bitter ( probably London Pride)

Third: Grilled mango and prosciutto with herb ricotta and mango coulis Beer---German or Bohemian Pilsner ( probably PU)

Fourth: Pineapple polenta and shrimp with pineapple habanero sauce. Beer--- Beligian Blonde

Fifth: Grilled lamb (ground lamb with corriander, cumin, cayenne and cilantro) skewers with cucumber mint coucous and cucumber yogurt dipping sauce. Beer---Duchess de Bourgonne (sp)

Sixth: Roasted whole beef tenderloin and bearnaise sauce with mushroom risotto. Beer--- American Pale Ale or Brown Ale

Seventh:  2 year aged Stilton, 3 year aged Parmesan, 18 month aged Comte and 2 year aged Canadian Cheddar. Beer---Wee Heavy or Old Ale

Eight: Crème brulee with fruit. Beer---Chocolate , Mocha or Coffee stout

Sounds like an awesome dinner!

The pan-seared scallops with bacon puree almost made me drool on my keyboard!  ;D
