Craft beer is the new seasonal ingredient.
From Jacquelyn Dodd—the woman behind the award-winning website The Beeroness—comes Lush, a celebration of fruit, vegetables, and craft beer. After all, beer is as seasonal as produce; its ingredients come from the soil and are harvested at peak freshness, just like the offerings at your local farmers’ market. It’s no surprise that the flavors of seasonal craft beers pair perfectly with the food we’re eating at the moment.
This cookbook features 80 creative, produce-forward recipes—all of which are made with seasonal craft beer. From Gochujang ISA Shakshuka to Grilled Apricot Saison Shortcakes to Doppelbock Rutabaga Mash, make no mistake: this isn’t your drunk uncle’s beer chili.
Whether your Saturdays are spent at the farmers’ market or your favorite local craft brewery (or both!), Dodd’s creative use of produce and beer opens the door to deliciously complex flavors that evolve with the seasons.
