Beer and food combinations have started to make their way into restaurants all across America. This could be a food and beer pairing such as spicy food and India Pale Ale. It could also be cooking with beer, like when wheat beer is used in a cake recipe. Here is a simple dessert, The Chocolate Stout Float, that uses a combination of both techniques.
I prefer Young’s Double Chocolate Stout with vanilla gelato. The stouts dark chocolate bite pairs well with the sweetness of the gelato. This is a great way to finish a meal and a unique beer pairing.
1 pint vanilla gelato
4 tall dessert glasses
1. Put two scoops of gelato in dessert glasses
2. Slowly pour Young’s over the gelato
3. Serve with long spoon
