In a prior post, I reviewed Lucy Saunders new cookbook The Best of American Beer & Food:
The Best [Darn] Beer & Food Cookbook [Ever]?
On 15 November, she'll be in the D.C. area for a book signing and dinner at R.F.D. , with Diane Alexander, a degreed chef and co-owner of R.F.D. Several of Diane's recipes are in the new book.
Here is the email from Dave Alexander. Note that he mistakenly says that Grilling with Beer is Lucy's newest book. Excellent as that book is, it is the newer The Best of American Beer & Food that will be featured.
ONE NIGHT ONLY
Thursday November 15
Author Lucy Saunders comes to RFD for an evening of great beers and delicious food pairings. Lucy is COOL! She has written several books on the subject and is a true expert in both cooking with beer and pairing foods with beers.
I gotta sit down for a second. Diane is hosting this event. Lucy and the big boss Diane Alexander herself (I’m in big trouble) will present an evening of yummy beers and foods including these courses which will be paired with crazy good beers from Dave’s stash!
- Bittersweet salad with bittergreens and chocolate
- Carrot Ginger Curry Soup
- Cocoa Rubbed Pork Shoulder with Ancho Chile Sauce (paired with two contrasting beers)
- Chocolate Noir Cake with Framboise sauce
Food made with chocolate? food made with beer? who wrote these rules you ask? THERE ARE NO RULES! WE CAN’T HANDLE THE RULES!
Lucy will have copies of her new book “Grilling with Beer” available for purchase and signing at this event. Tickets are only $40.00 for a multiple course evening of wonderful pairings. Don’t miss this chance to meet one of the beer worlds best writers. Call RFD at 202-289-2030 NOW and get your tickets for this truly special evening.
There is a rumor that Lucy may return to our area in early March for a Clipper City Beer Dinner. Stay tuned!
