So sometime back in October last year I went to an exclusive fine dining dinner which involved a beer pairing. Beer pairing? Yes and you can read about it here – https://timchew.net/2011/10/20/fine-dine-beer-with-chef-kern-by-kronenbourg-1664/
I enjoyed myself so much that when the invite came for this one I leaped at the opportunity to attend!
This time round Chef Anton Mosimann, OBE (Order of the British Empire) who was in town to serve up a culinary feast for us at The Club in Saujana on 25 September 2012!
The Carlsberg Malaysia dinner’s objective was to inspire guests to reflect on, and derive as much pleasure from the flavours, aromas and beauty of cuisine, crafted flawlessly by only the best in culinary arts, in this case Chef Anton Mosimann.
The delicious food, paired with Carlsberg Malaysia’s diverse portfolio of brands, demonstrates that they have the right products for discerning consumers thus ensuring beautiful pairings all around!
So the next time you’re at a restaurant you might just want to conduct your own beer pairing! You could choose a beer that complements the flavours of your dish (eg. earthly flavours with a dark beer like Grimbergen Ambre, fruity dessert with a fruity beer like Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc).
Alternatively you go with a beer that contrasts with the flavours of your dish (eg. a more neutral beer that’s not too overpowering like Asahi Super Dry to go with truffels or foie gras or perhaps Carlsberg Green Label to balance out a cream of carrot soup).
Have fun experimenting and don’t hold back!
