Several questions were raised at the Craft Brewers Conference last week regarding beer-and-food pairings and what restaurants do by way of beer.
I posed some of the same questions to South Sound chefs and restaurateurs, all of whom own or work at places that have good selections of craft beers.
Have you ever been approached by any craft brewers regarding beer dinners or beer-and-food pairings?
Gordon Naccarato, chef/owner Pacific Grill, Tacoma; and The Beach House at Purdy: I have not … but I would enjoy the challenge.
Mark Gaimster, owner Il Fiasco, Tacoma: No.
Jeff Bishop, chef, Sound Food Cafe, Vashon Island: No.
