CORNSTORE FOOD BEER EVENING


Superb beers and superb food and excellent company were the highlights of a very pleasant Food Beer showcase at the Cornstore last night. The beers, mainly continental, were supplied by Cremin and Radley. The Cornstore kitchen did a fantastic job with the matching and the tasting menu (below). Superb all round.



Every single one of the five courses was top class but two stood out for me. The Sea Bass was memorable. Not because the fish was gorgeous, which it was. But because of the accompaniments, in particular the carrot and orange emulsion (spiced up with a touch of cumin). And the dish went so well with the Schneider Weisse Kristall.



We finished off with a fabulous dessert and a brilliant matching beer. That White Chocolate Mousse with shortbread and strawberries would have been so tasty on its own but add in the Strawberry Wheat beer and you had a rare treat indeed.



Just have to emphasise that the other dishes and beers were also very very enjoyable, all top class. So thanks to Mike and all the Cornstore crew and to John Radley who provided short and to the point info on the beers. Cremin and Radley, by the way, will have a stand at the October Beer fest in the Franciscan Well on the Bank Holiday Weekend.
