For a truly sparkling evening, make sure to serve your beer with some delicious food –
both during the aperitif and the festive dinners. Try to pair your meal with a beer that has a similar intensity
of flavour. Michelin-starred chef David Martin gives us a few pointers: “Leffe Nectar pairs very well with foie
gras. Up the wow factor and make your own foie gras nougat by mixing in some almonds, raisins, dried apricots,
etc. Your guests will be impressed!”
More subtle flavours taste delicious with a more delicate beer, whereas more pronounced flavours require a strong beer to be fully appreciated.
If opting for beer instead of champagne seems like an utterly ludicrous idea, just think of beer’s miraculous properties. Thanks to the digestive benefits linked to the yeast, beer proves a perfect choice to accompany all those rich holiday meals. Plus, it will boost your appetite!
So, are you prepared to leave old habits behind and jump-start your aperitif?
