Last night I attended a degustation dinner with a difference. Beer and Bacon. The Silly Tart Kitchen are always up for the unusual and Chef Josh certainly put his culinary talents to the test last night. Pairing Bacon with craft beer supplied by Two Birds Brewing.
Starting with a choice of cocktail "A Noble Taco Head" or "An Espresso Sunset" guests then moved on to sample the pairing meal.
I'm not a beer drinker but I must say I really enjoyed the cocktails and the beers with this amazing menu.
Potato chips and bacon bits to share
TACO beer with bloody bacon shot with coriander and beer foam
PALE with fish and chips, poached in pale with roasted pineapple, black garlic, tostadas and bacon crumble
SUNSET ALE (blind tasting) - Macaroni cheese
WINTER STOUT with carpet bag steak, confit sirloin, lemon and rock oyster fritter. Winter stout and bacon jam.
IPA with chocky cake, dark chocolate and stout, burnt marshmallow and candied bacon IPA.
Did I catch you eating chocolate Josh?
