Did you know that cheese and beer go well together? Sometimes making a better pairing than cheese and wine. Check out this article for some tips.
In part of today’s class we made cheese bread and Chef suggested we use beer as the liquid instead of water. The cheeses we used were Swiss and cheddar.
To complement, I went with Weihenstephaner – (that’s a mouthful) – a German Hefe Weissbier. “Hefe” means yeast (this helps in the leavening of the bread), “Weizen” means wheat and a Hefeweizen is a top fermented, unfiltered, bottle conditioned wheat beer with a noticeable yeast sediment and a cloudy appearance.
I made a simple sandwich with Genoa salami and Swiss cheese. I swore I’d stop eating cheese (health reasons), but I could not resist this week. Definitely my best and favourite bread of this semester. So good =)
