"I’ve been a cook and writer my whole life. I wrote my first original recipe and mailed it to a TV show when I was four years old. I was lucky enough to have been raised by one of those legendary Southern grandmothers who cooked with great skill and no recipes. Even when my cooking veered drastically away from Southern for a few years, she was always open to what I prepared and would taste anything."

Imperial Pilsner

Why are some beers called imperial or double? Imperial and double are synonyms for more (more, in this case, referring to more alcohol). With more alcohol, you usually get more other things, like hops. Some styles lend themselves to imperial or double versions more readily, but any style can become "more" by simply increasing the malt in the boil which adds more fermentable sugar. For this cod and potato dish, we think an imperial pilsner will provide a "bigger" beer for the fish.

Aged Chardonnay - Napa Valley, CA

Aged Chardonnays from the New World take on a very different character with age, as spice and vanilla notes from the barrel morph in to toast, beeswax, and nuts. Acidity becomes more pronounced, achieving a balance of delicacy and richness between cod and the potatoes.
