Goose Island at Sur La Table #MigrationWeek

Earlier this week I was invited by Goose Island (Chicago’s Craft Beer) to a cooking demonstration at Sur La Table in San Diego for Migration Week. I had no idea that I would be doing the cooking. I figured it was a possibility since I was going to Sur La Table. I was pleasantly surprised and learned a LOT of helpful tips for the kitchen. We also got to taste a few of the Goose Island beers and I now have a new favorite. Meet Sofie: She is a belgian style farmhouse ale and is perfect for this typical champagne drinker.

Sofie comes in regular beer bottles or this fun champagne bottle. It has hints of orange peel and vanilla but still tastes like a smooth saison. Oh and aside from having my fair share of tastes we did some cooking with Sofie too.

Chef Mark from Sur La Table gave us some awesome tips in the kitchen including: the proper way to hold a knife, how to cut an onion without crying and cooking with beer suggestions. We made steamed mussels with Goose Island Honkers Ale and thyme, Honkers Ale and honey-braised short ribs, beer-braised brussles sprouts with bacon and stout ice cream with dark chocolate sauce. OMG. So Good! I also really liked the taste of the India pale ale which is weird since I am not a big pale ale drinker.

Everything was SO delicious. And, now I know how to cook with beer!!!

I was overjoyed to attend this event. I learned all about Goose Island Beer, got great tips from an awesome chef and I met some super cool people. Cooking classes at Sur La Table are also pretty awesome. I will have to head back soon for another class.
