Clipper City Brewing's Hugh Sisson played chef on TV this morning.
It's 1 April you say?
Well yes indeed. But Sisson really did do a chili cooking segment this morning ... on Washington D.C.'s Fox 5.
Here's the video. Here's the recipe.
Hugh throws in a couple of tips on beer and food pairing for good measure.
- Match the spice of the dish with bitterness of the hops. He pairs the chile with Clipper City Pale Ale.
- For long-cooking meals, avoid cooking with highly-hopped beers: the bitterness will be accentuated. He prepares the chile with his Balto Marzhon, a Vienna Lager.
Hugh's been doing a bit of DC media recently.
In early March, he was at WUSA 9, where he participated in another cooking segment, but that morning with chef and beer-cookbook author Lucy Saunders. Here he is, back to the camera, with Channel 9 morning anchor Mike Walter.
