    Dumplings with my family
    A recent graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, I found myself with no money, no kitchen equipment, and an exceptionally huge appetite. Ideas, improvisations, and yummy meal solutions were discovered in the kitchen of my very first apartment.

An Ommegang Beer Tasting

I am incredibly lucky to have Matt as my personal sommelier and beer guru. He knows so much about our favorite bebidas alcoholicas, and I love it when he brings home new, delicious surprises. So when he brought home some samplings from the (relatively) nearby Ommegang Brewery, I was delighted. I had tasted Hennepin before – one of their more common and well known beers, especially in great restaurants around the area. But it was especially delicious enjoyed outside on the porch…wonderfully refreshing with hints of citrus.

The next taste was the Ommegang Abbey Ale – full of darker, but slightly sweet tastes: fig and honey, and a hit of bitterness.

The Rare Vos was my favorite – bright, bold flavors in the mouth with the kind of wonderful yeastyness that I really love in Belgians.

Thanks again, Matt…for continuing to expand my palette 🙂 And don’t forget to check out Ommegang for yourself!
