Four Courses for a Romantic Evening

by Matt DeMarco

The missus and I like to avoid the madness that surrounds Valentine’s Day weekend and since I am the chef in the house, I have to provide a restaurant quality meal every year. This year I am sharing the menu I am preparing for V-Day and the beers that I will be pairing with each course. All of the courses are easy to prepare and the beers are readily available. Of course it doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day for you to set aside some time with your partner so keep these recipes in mind for Feb.14 or your next romantic evening.

Perfect Pairings....Beer and Chocolate

by Matt Demarco

Because Valentine’s Day is quickly descending upon us, I paired 5 readily available, highly rated beers with chocolates.  When it comes to pairing alcoholic beverages with sweets, beer often gets left behind. But when you think about it, it makes sense.  You love beer.  You love chocolate.  Why not enjoy both together? Beer pairs excellently with dessert as we demonstrated during the holidays with our cookies and beer pairing.  Maybe this year you can skip the flowers, forgo champagne, leave the wine corked and try some of these match ups.
