Beer: The Condiment With An Attitude!

Book Review: Beer and Food by Bob Skilnik

Beer & Food: An American History received a nice endorsement from Alan McLeod up in Ontario on his “A Good Beer Blog.”

Here’s just a preview, but you really should put his blog on your saved feeds and regularly stop by the site;

“The full title is Beer and Food: An American History and it could not be a plainer truth. Bob leads us through the generations of US brewing and cuisine from colonial days to the present and shows how beer has experienced more than one rise and fall as an ingredient in the American kitchen. His research and explanations are primary – by which I mean he cites cookbooks from at least the early eighteenth century to the favorite recipes of modern craft brewers. He also ties them into the prevailing technologies and context whether it is on the frontier or in the days of prohibition. There is a good sized bibliography including booklets and papers giving confidence in the authority backing up what he tells us.”
