This is week four of The Barking Deer’s incredible offer. For those of you who don’t know what this offer is, here’s a recap. Chef Parag and I tasted some of their hottest selling dishes and paired it with one beer. This combination of one main dish and one beer will be available at a discounted price at TBD for one week only. So last week they had the Spinach and Mushroom Crepes with Schneider Weisse
This week you will get to try…
Earl Grey Chicken with London Pride
The food: Delicious chicken breast prepared beautiful in an earl grey tea and chicken jus – this tastes divine! The flavours are not overpowering and I love that I can actually taste the chicken. The earl grey flavour hits you right at the end. The hearty portion of chicken is grilled nicely to give a crisp exterior and a succulent inside. Along with simple mashed potatoes and vegetables, I will go back to try this again.
The beer: London Pride is smooth ale with a malty flavour and a characteristic hop flavour.
Match made in heaven: Pairing this beer with the chicken enhances the earl grey flavour. The hoppy bitterness goes well with the slight bitter taste of the earl grey tea. On its own, I couldn’t drink London Pride. But with food it tasted great.
How much: Rs.799 plus taxes
Offer valid until: 1st September, 2013
