Oh, Canada!

I know, I know. I never call. I never write. To be honest, I simply haven't had much time for fabulous cooking--which is kind of sad. I also haven't had time (or is that patience) to tweak the xml formatting, so this blog still has some rough edges. I have updated a few posts with pics of the end product, just to tempt you a little more :)

This quick post is dedicated to an amazing beer. I have the fortune of living very close to a pub and their associated provisions store that import beer from all over the world. And when I say "import", I'm not talking Guinness or Sapporo. I'm talking dozens of international microbrews and honest to God Trappist beer from all the six monasteries that export to the United States.

A few weeks ago I picked up Equinoxe du printemps (Spring equinox) from Brasserie Dieu du Ciel. This is a Scotch ale brewed with maple syrup. It was unlike any beer I've tried. It tastes like good scotch without the bite. Smooth, light, sweet, it goes great with desert. Paramed and I enjoyed ours with Trader Joe's Apple Blossoms (basically an apple dumpling) and vanilla ice cream. This beer makes me love the Canadians even more.
