More than ever before, Torontonians are starting to discover the incredible wealth and diversity of locally brewed craft beers. More than just a patio-season treat, these beers offer the chefs an amazing culinary opportunity to pair flavours and ingredients.
Kendra Simmonds, hot on the heels of her sold-out Titanic themed supper club, has put together a creative menu showcasing the culinary possibilities of local craft beers. We’ll be working with several local craft breweries to source a variety of beers, and will include a tasting flight of beers to complement each course.
We are working on finalizing the beers to be used and served, and will update the menu soon.
Amuse: Welsh rarebit
Beer bread crostini topped with a beer-infused cheddar sauce
First course: Deconstructed beer salad
Barley and rye grains, wheat grass, corn shoots with a hops and malt vinaigrette and crispy bacon
Main course: Drunken Pigs – pork and beer two ways
1- Beer brined pork loin with beer reduction, spiced hoppy lentils, and sautéed rapini
2- Crispy beer glazed pork belly with mushroom medley and asparagus spears with toasted almonds
Dessert: Beer batter crepes
Filled with cider flambéed apples and coffee porter-chocolate mousse
