Bryn Williams’ iconic Primrose Hill restaurant will put a spotlight on craft beer’s place at the fine-dining table, for one night only
Launching on Wednesday 26th July, for one night only, the six-course menu features a variety of dishes expertly selected to pair with a range of Goose Island’s Vintage Ale range Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the Chicago-based brewer’s selection of unique barrel-aged beers, along with Italian craft beers from Birra Del Borgo.
From savoury to sweet, each dish will use only the finest fresh, seasonal ingredients and be accompanied by a specially chosen craft beer.
Odette’s head chef Will Gordon, Goose Island’s Ambassador Josh Smith and Beer Sommelier Jonny Tyson will be on-hand to talk guests through the complex flavour combinations of each food and craft beer pairing.
Jonny Tyson, Beer Sommelier working with Goose Island, comments Ã¢â‚¬Å“When it comes to food and drink pairings, especially in the context of fine-dining, people are inclined to think of wine as the only possible accompaniment.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“With so many different types of beers available Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and as a result, a variety of flavours Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this one-off tasting menu with Odette’s is a real opportunity to demonstrate the potential of craft beer at the dining table, and change perceptions around how it can be enjoyed.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“From seafood to salads, meat to cheese, guests will be able to sample a variety of dishes and beer pairings that will show off the versatility of craft beer and how it’s the perfect accompaniment to different types of foodÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Chef Patron at Odette’s, Bryn Williams, comments: Ã¢â‚¬Å“I am very excited to be matching our food with these great beers and discovering new flavor combinations.
Head chef Will Gordon adds, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Odette’s menu is driven by our kitchen garden, and it’s really exiting to explore these interesting beers with our fresh ingredientsÃ¢â‚¬Â.
