Dog Chow: The First Cookbook from Flying Dog Brewery
“This is a book about food and beer.” And so begins Dog Chow, our very first cookbook, released just in time for holiday gift-giving.
Described as “the everyman’s (or woman’s) guide to navigating the kitchen with beer in hand,” each of the eight recipes in Dog Chow features a different Flying Dog beer as a main ingredient.
This first volume of Dog Chow is all about our brewers — all of the recipes were developed by them. From Macaroni and Cheese with Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale to Gonzo Imperial Porter Chocolate Ice Cream, Dog Chow will make the mouths of beer geeks and foodies water.
Dog Chow offers beginners tips on how to cook with beer. For example, beer can be heated, but not boiled. Boiling beer makes its innate hoppiness a Hell of a lot more hoppy…and not in a good way.
We also offer pointers on pairing beer with food, along with flavor profiles on each of our beers. While there are no finite rules to beer pairings, guidelines like “no beer is created equal,” “beware of the big O,” and “throw caution to the wind,” makes pairing beer approachable and removes the intimidation factor often associated with wine.
