Winter food is better with beer.

So we were pleased when our friends at MoCU sent us the Journey To Gastronomy collection with five types of beer to pair with some of our favourite recipes.

Slow Cooked Osso Bucco

On a cold Winter's night its hard to beat this recipe

On a cold Winter’s night, you can’t beat slow cooked, tender beef Osso Buco on a smooth rich polenta. It sounds like a difficult recipe but it’s actually super simple. All it takes is a little time and believe me it’s worth the wait. . Match this slow cooked body warming meal with MoCu Interceptor Malt Shovel Brewery IPA and winter won’t seem so terrible.

Beer Braised Wagyu Pie

When cooking with beer, quality does matter.

Different beers, can give a beef pie completely different flavour profiles, so get creative and play around. Recently I’ve been ordering the Journey To Gastronomy collection from MoCU and the flavours have been EPIC! Cook it slow with the Little Creatures Brewery Pilsner and top it off with crispy, golden and delicious hot puff pastry.

Cauliflower and Truffle Soup

Keen to try the easiest soup recipe you’ll ever make?

We’ve converted many the cauliflower hater with this dish, so even if you’re not a cauliflower fan, we reckon you should give it a go anyway. Enjoy!
What are some of your favourite soups to warm up with when the cold weather hits? Let us know in the comments below and we’ll try and recreate a couple for you.

With a surprise in the centre that everyone will love

Delicious pork and beef meatballs, which are made extra special by the wedge of triple cream jersey milk brie we popped in the centre. Cheesy, oozy goodness all washed down with one of MoCU‘s craft beers, we go for the James Boags Brewery Wizard Smith. Happy Days & Nights.

One Pot Roast Chicken

This recipe is a play on Southeast Asian flavours.

It’s an idea I had to create a simple go-to mid-week meal that can feed a whole family with very little cleaning up afterwards!
It’s almost like making a coconut based curry without all the chopping to create the curry paste! This is the perfect recipe to add in one of MoCU‘s lagers like the Knappstein Vineyard Reserve Lager.
