What do you get when you combine a passion for cooking organic and sustainable meats and a meal matched perfectly to top notch craft brews?
MUMU Grill’s Beef & Beer Master Classes!
For Master Classes which occur in May and June 2010 online boutique beer retailer Beer Cartel are providing a special 2 for the price of 1 offer for all those who attend.
So what’s a MUMU Master Class?
MUMU Master Classes are held at MUMU Grill, on Sydney’s North Shore. The classes are a 2 hour cooking and tasting extravaganza which takes place on the 2nd and 3rd Saturday of the month. The first hour is spent with Chef Craig Macindoe in the MUMU kitchen learning about different beef cuts, cooking techniques, basic rubs and BBQ salads. After benefiting from some excellent cooking advice, attendees will be provided the chance to cook their own meal – all while enjoying a brilliant craft beer! For head chef and owner Mr Macindoe, beef and beer make a perfect match “There are some partnerships that are undeniably perfect for each other. For me, beef and beer are just one of those partnerships.”
After plating their meal (and being marked on their plating skills just like Masterchef!), attendees will take a seat in the restaurant to savour their meal matched with superb craft beer. Dan Hampton from Beer Snobs will then lead an engrossing discussion about the different beers being tasted, various brewing techniques and flavour profiles of beer as participants enjoy their meal.
Attendees will taste between 5 – 7 different craft beers during the Master Class, matched perfectly to different dishes. Mr Hampton is always gobsmacked at how people react to some of the food and beer matchings. “It always amazes me towards the end of the Master Class when we tell people we are going to match beer with chocolate – they laugh and throw faces, but when they try it they can’t believe how well they go together and that’s what it’s all about.”
Tickets to a Beef and Beer Master Class are normally $85 a head. For May and June a special 2 for 1 offer has been placed on the Beer Cartel website. Geoff Huens from Beer Cartel says “This is the best value for money food and beer experience going around and is designed for anyone who is a foodie or beer lover at heart, be it male or female. It really is a fantastic opportunity to delight the senses and come away with new knowledge that will make your future cooking and beer drinking experiences all the more memorable.”
Classes run from 11am – 1pm with the 2 for 1 offer valid for Saturday May 15th & 22nd and June 12th and 19th. To purchase a 2 for 1 ticket simply visit the Beer Cartel website www.beercartel.com.au, go to the NSW Experiences page and look for the Beef & Beer Master Class 2 for 1 Offer.
