If there's a liquid in a recipe, it might as well be beer! Includes notes on which beers go well with which dishes, both as an ingredient and to drink with them, as well as detailed, clearly explained methods in a friendly, approachable tone.
Paul has a great fondness for beer and a wealth of knowledge about it. He has spent considerable time developing recipes in which beer plays a significant role, not as a gimmick, but as an essential flavouring. His recipes display a depth of knowledge about the flavours and qualities of various beers and the dishes that they best complement. The 80-plus recipes include both bold and subtle dishes, from traditional beer-based favourites such as Lamb Shanks in Guinness, to variations on classics, such as Beer-Braised Beef Osso Bucco, to those that use beer in unexpected but wholly delicious ways, such as Birramisu and Sticky Date Pudding.
Paul Mercurio is familiar to television audiences through his appearances in Strictly Ballroom, Dancing with the Stars and Mercurio's Menu. He is also a beer judge and has judged at International and New Zealand beer awards as well as participating in the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival and similar festivals.
