I attended this dinner at Biercraft Bistro on June 25th it was the last dinner in their Battle of the Belgian series that featured a 4 course meal created by Chef Don Farion paired with a variety of beers from Belgium.
My friend Sergio who was visiting from Toronto joined me at this dinner.
Now on to dinner and the pairings!
Summer Greek Salad with lemon and oregano vinaigrette
Paired with Wittekerke Wit
Gruyere and withier Fondue with crusty bread, seasonal fruit and vegetables
Paired with Ommegang Witte
Buttermilk Fried Chicken with sweet corn and goat’s cheese grits, crispy coleslaw
Paired with Glazen Toren Jan de Lichte Double Wit
Lemon curd, Limoncello and Coriander mascerated organic blueberries
Paired with Driftwood Whitebark
The whole meal was delicious and very well paired. My favourite of the food dishes and pairings was the oustanding Gruyere and withier Fondue with crusty bread, seasonal fruit and vegetables that was paired with Ommegang Witte. I also loved the Buttermilk Fried Chicken with sweet corn and goat’s cheese grits, crispy coleslaw that was paired with Glazen Toren Jan de Lichte Double Wit. For dessert the Lemon curd, Limoncello and Coriander mascerated organic blueberries was the perfect ending to the meal, for this one they paired it with a beer from BC the Driftwood Whitebark.
