In line with the introduction to The Official Guinness Cookbook the long-lasting stout has been round for over 250 years, and chances are high people have been cooking with Guinness for almost simply as lengthy. There’s validity to the notion it shouldn’t have taken this lengthy for the brewery to furnish an official cookbook: a fast search via ISBN codes supplies loads of Irish cookbooks and books on Guinness historical past, however nothing in between.

Caroline Hennessy, the writer of 2014’s equally fulfilling Sláinte: The Full Information to Irish Craft Beer and Cider, does a masterful job balancing the informative and entertaining, offering a wonderful overview of the brewery’s historical past and primary methods earlier than diving deep into an assortment of appetizers, sides, entrees, and desserts showcasing the beer’s versatility in accentuating completely different cuisines. Hennessy switches from consolation meals to modern dishes with ease whereas maintaining issues easy for even essentially the most primary of cooks.

If there’s one disadvantage, it may be discovered within the name for numerous sorts of Guinness, fairly than having the basic, commonplace Guinness participating with all recipes. Having to buy Hop Home 13 Lager or Baltimore Blonde beer feels counterintuitive to reader expectations. Nevertheless, I’m greater than sure that the Cocoa-Dusted Additional Stout Truffles now deliberate for my St. Patrick’s celebrations will make up for this matter in good kind.

Tip: for the simplest outcomes, make sure you have a pint open on the prepared whereas cooking.
