Michelin star chef Xosé Torres Cannas, of Pepe Vieira restaurant, Galicia, Spain, is joining Stack A restaurant at Dublin's Urban Brewing for a special food and beer pairing evening on November 28th. Each chef will prepare three courses.
At #DiscoverTheUnexpected, guests will be served a six course tasting menu prepared by Xosé Torres Cannas and Urban Brewing’s head chef Dan Keane. Each course, influenced by Galician and Irish cuisine, will be accompanied by a different beer from each region — two from Urban Brewing, brewed on-site in its microbrewery, one from O’Hara’s Brewery and three from Estrella Galicia.
The menu will open with alcohol-free Estrella Galicia 0.0, and to accompany it, Xosé will create a shellfish dish of scallop cured in salt with aerated fennel soup. The second beer will be Urban Wit, a Belgian-style wit beer by Urban Brewing, served with a salt baked celeriac dish by Dan.
The third beer of Estrella Galicia World Lager will be served with a Robaliza casserole stew dish by Xosé, which features the classic Spanish ingredient of cod tripe cooked in a cod broth. Estrella Galicia’s 1906 Reserva Especial will be the fourth featured beer accompanied by a rich La Patata Del Cocido pork dish by Xosé.
The fifth beer of Urban Bock will be accompanied by a dish by Dan of haunch of Glenmalure venison with red cabbage pureé, spiced wine, bitter chocolate and blackberries. For the final course, O’Hara’s Leann Folláin, which is aged in first fill American bourbon oak barrels, will be complemented by a dessert dish by Dan of spiced pumpkin.
Leo E. Vasileiou of Urban Brewing said: “We can’t wait to host this unique collaboration with Estrella Galicia with whom we share a passion and tradition for producing outstanding beers that people love to enjoy. A lot of thought has gone into the beer choices and the food pairings, which will add an exciting twist as well as a fun and relaxed opportunity for people to learn more about the complex flavours of Urban Brewing’s beers. We feel privileged that we will be welcoming a chef of the calibre of Xosé Torres Cannas to Stack A Restaurant at Urban Brewing with whom our head chef Dan Keane shares a love for local, seasonal ingredients.”
