Crocking Your Ribs: When the Heat Rises, Low and slow is the way to go

Summer is barbecue season, but sometimes it’s just too hot to move. And if you’re cooking ribs, it means you’re monitoring a hot grill for hours outside in the heat. Doing it indoors doesn’t help – heat  up the oven and you heat up the kitchen.

The good news is that there’s a way to have fall-off-the-bone perfection in the middle of summer without breaking a sweat. It just takes a little prep up front and a slow cooker on low.  See more at: http://www.beerconnoisseur.com/articles/crocking-your-ribs

The Scoop on Ice Cream and Beer

Recently, the jangly tune of an ice cream truck wafted through my neighborhood, announcing to everyone within earshot that summer had arrived. The man driving the truck had nearly every frozen novelty available, but there’s one style of treat that he didn’t have and, even if he did, he couldn’t sell it to the kids lining up for a taste: ice cream made with beer.

Curry Favor at Shamiana Restaurant: A South Asian culinary expedition in Kirkland, Washington.

Chef Max Murowchick is as unique as the cuisine he creates at Shamiana Restaurant in Kirkland, Washington. The color of his skin and his bare head might initially seem out of place in a restaurant beloved by locals for its South Asian cuisine. In addition, his youthful energy belies his decades of experience working in the food industry. Yet, when you consider that a shamiana is a type of tent in India where family and friends are celebrated, and then watch him welcoming regulars and newcomers alike with warmth and enthusiasm, you can see that his spirit is a perfect fit for the food he serves. - See more at: http://www.beerconnoisseur.com/articles/curry-favor-shamiana-restaurant

Don't Worry, Brie Happy: Not Your Mother's Grilled Cheese

I was going for "picnic in a sandwich" when I came up with this recipe for BeerConnoisseur.com: Grilled Brie with Apples and Caramel Walnuts. It's got the warmth of the classic grilled cheese with the brightness of a classic cheese pairing (brie, apples, and walnuts), so you could say this is a "classic within a classic." 

The article includes the recipe and beer pairing ideas.
