Presenting…”Beer Knight” and ultra premium European Beers. Happy Father’s Day!

 

 

Move over vino, there’s another big gig in town!  Ultra premium craft beers coming out of Europe are as unique and as flavourful as any Chardonnay or Cabernet, and they too embrace the role of partner when it comes to the pairing of food and drink. Not just any old beer will do, liken a lager to a white wine and an ale to red.  And not only that…. says Beer Knight Guy McClelland, each premium craft beer has a story, a history, some dating back over ten thousand years!

 

 

This week on The Wine Ladies TV we welcome Guy McClelland, President of MPI, one of only four Canadians to be enthroned into the knighthood by the Confederation of Belgium Brewers, thus bearing the title of the Beer Knight. Guy will introduce us to an array of eight wonderful and unique European beers. We’lll learn the differences bewteen lagers and ales, the importance of the right glass and why it is key to always use a glass… how to avoid that “bloated” feeling, why these pure natural beers are healthy and much more!

Australian Lucky Penny Wines Comes to Canada! The Wine Ladies Radio/TV June 2013

The mint may have pulled the penny, but “Lucky Penny” wines, two delicious blends produced by Casella Wines  just launched, are definitely here to stay! This week on The Wine Ladies’ TV  we enjoy the introduction of this premium wine label (Casella is also the producer of Yellow Tail) with delectable and innovative food pairings courtesy of  star Executive Chef Cory Vitiello of The Harbord Room restaurant. 

Chef Vitiello was specifically selected to partner with Lucky Penny for this launch. Renown for his approach in cooking, “aiming for new and exciting flavour combinations”, Casella shares in this philosophy which he showcases in the varietal combinations selected.

For Lucky Penny white, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Viognier make up the blend, packed with soft fruit flavours of pear and apricot accentuated with toased honey notes from the Chardonnay. Available at the LCBO, $16.95 per bottle.

The Lucky Penny red is a blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot; in the glass rich berries, hint of chocolate and subtle vanilla overtones entice the palate. Available at the LCBO, $17.95 per bottle.

“We identified the most popular grape varieties, and our winemkers created great quality wines bursting with delicious aromas that leap out of the glass” John says. He also maintains that the “skill of a winemaker in creating blends is much like that of a chef, whereby the ingredients are carefully selected and combined to create new and exciting flavour combinations” Alas, Chef Cory is the ultimate candidate for the job, hands down!

We are treated to a quick demo from Cory, creating two dishes to pair with the two wines. What might be a surprise to some…. Chef Cory is known for doing the “unexpected” he serves up a dish which includes a dalop of  ice cream to pair with the red, and for the white, a little more conventional Pan Roasted Halibut. Both dishes and combos are sublime!
