Rozanne Gold returned for her last spot of the week today on “Cooking Today” to talk to biographer Bob Spitz and co-founder of The Good Beer Seal and owner of Jimmy’s Number 43 Craft Beer Bar and Restaurant, Jimmy Carbone.
Bob Spitz was on the show to discuss his upcoming book, Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child which comes out August 7.
The next segment, “What’s on Tap?” welcomed Jimmy Carbone to discuss how to find the right beer for what you are eating and advice for the novice. Bringing three different beers to sample in the studio, Jimmy is definitely the craft beer guru! Thankfully for those wine lovers out there, Jimmy was sure to bring beers that appeal to wine and beer lovers alike.
Explaining that craft beer is not just “beer,” Jimmy brought with him a Lambic from Belgium, which is a Belgian style strong ale with a hint of cherry from New York state, and two other dark beers that are food friendly and appeal to all of those wine lovers out there! Jimmy also brought along cheese, brittle and herring to snack on, since wine and craft beer are really better when paired with food.
If you missed today's show, you have another chance to catch it tonight at 6 and 10 p.m. ET.
“Cooking Today,” airs live each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT, on Sirius XM 110. Be sure to tune in Monday, June 18 when Saveur magazine wine editor and award-winning cookbook author, David Rosengarten joins us to host!
