Last night was the Zucca beer dinner in Ogden Utah. It was a great turn out, and a great night. Chef Elio Scanu of Zucca did another amazing job with the meal allowing both complimentary and contrasting pairings with the beer. The night started out with Seadas- Sardinian turnovers filled with Fiori Sardo cheese and finished with Tuscan Chestnut Honey. This was paired with Hive Uinta’s Honey Ale. Hive’s honey nose and dry finish was great with the Fiori Sardo and the Tuscan Honey. Other pairings included a small wood fired pizza paired with Gelande Amber Lager, Grilled Pork Tenderloin paired with King’s Peak Porter, and Roasted Duck paired with Uinta Anniversary Barley Wine.
One Uinta Crooked Line beer made the menu– A scallop and grilled prawn with Tomato & Sweet Garlic BBQ sauce, and Anson Mills Polenta was paired with the Tilted Smile Imperial Pilsner. The Sweetness of the BBQ was cut with the crisp character of the Pilsner.
Uinta really thanks Zucca and Chef Scanu for making it a fun and casual night for us and all of the guests.
