If you love beer and you’re thinking of having a themed wedding, then besides tables embellished with beer bottles and flowers, beer look-alike accessories and props, as well as actual beer to be served during the reception, you also and foremost want to delight your guests with those dishes which ingredients are compatible in taste.
“Beer is a great match for food because of the complexity of its flavors, its ability to provide refreshment and to interact with many food flavors,” says Marc Stroobandt, master beer sommelier for the Food and Beer Consultancy, UK. “Even before the meal, beer already is doing its work for food pairing as the hops stimulate the appetite.” (from http://www.mensfitness.com/).
As a former restaurateur I am an eager reader of recipes and general food pairing. From the form below you can see what are the main ingredients that match beers: fruits and cheese; but of course also beef and also ravioli….and the cool “Birramisu” : a tiramisu that looks like a beer (birra in Italian means beer)
To experience the real Beer Themed Wedding head to the Italian Lakes where the main beer factories are located. Our Wedding Packages there start from £7990
