Saison Sunday School

I finally found a Sunday School that is my cup of tea beer.  Saison Sunday School.  Another Sunday funday in the books and I even gained a little knowledge.  The Common Table (our home away from home) hosted the event on the day of Sabbath with Jeff, the beer specialist, and Chef Lee making excellent beer and food pairings.  6 (big) beers to taste, cheese galore, meat balls, beignets, oh my!   My inner chubby girl was so very happy.  At this rate, I might become the chubby girl, especially after the third beignet.  I had the self control to cut myself off before the fourth.

When I started TPJ, I set the Food & Wine category with the intention of focusing on wine.  Beer took over the category before I even wrote a single wine post.  I blame The Common Table.  TCT has a special place in my heart and so does their beer.  When I finally stopped selecting beer that I thought would be similar to wine or champagne, I found my palette.  Saisons are a fav because of the acidity and fruitiness.  Brasserie Dupont is my beer king and of course he is expensive.  Champagne taste, beer budget does not apply.

Jeff and Chef Lee’s menu is below.  I highlighted my loves.  I strongly encourage you to visit TCT asap.  Order a flight (Brewsday Tuesday!) and save room for food (everything is good).  I’ll be at the bar.  Stop by to say hello.

    Sounds like a fabulous meal! I too love Saisons, especially Brasserie Dupont’s version.
