Meet author Lucy Saunders and sample her Beer & Cheese Soup.
"My goal in writing the cookbook is to focus on pairing beer with fresh-grown food. People are growing vegetables at home, buying fresh produce at farmer's markets, participating in community supported agriculture, enjoying Meatless Mondays, so it's good to show what can be done with beer pairings."
It’s an almost all Wisconsin-made cookbook--written in Milwaukee, 80 percent of food photos by native Wisconsinite, Michael Wessel photographed in Milwaukee area gardens, pages made in Madison, and the cookbook printed in Stevens Point at Worzalla, an employee owned printing company. Recipes are contributed by chefs such as AJ Hurst from Vintage Brewing Co and chefs from the Kohler Festival of Beer, as well as home chefs.
Milwaukee based author, Lucy Saunders writes about beer and food, for newspapers, magazines and cookbooks, including Grilling with Beer and Best of American Beer & Food . Saunders teaches classes and workshops on craft beer pairing and cuisine, plus catered tastings, beer dinners and beer festival cooking demonstrations. Saunders also organizes water and energy conservation workshops for breweries. www.conserve-greatlakes.com .
