You know I don't celebrate every food related holiday, but when I do - there's typically a beverage included! LoL!
To celebrate International Beer Day, I wanted to take a quick few minutes and share a recipe that I use time & time again to inspired & impress; my Chocolate & Espresso Stout Beeramisú.
In fact, I'm even making this tomorrow night for a LIVE Workshop I'm hosting for a Bachelorette Party!
This recipe, while not tradition for a few reasons, allows for an easy spin on the layered italian-style dessert of Tiramisu!
It features pre-made Lady Finger cookies that are dipped in chocolate & coffee stout and layered between a rich creamy mascarpone filled layers.
For this, I like to use a really heavy double chocolate stout (the one pictured here was from my friends at "The George Brewery & Pub" based out of Newmarket, Ontario) but you can use a either a double chocolate stout and add your own espresso/instant espresso powder OR really any oat or milk stout and then flavour it with both cocoa powder and espresso/instant espresso powder. (If you need help, please feel free to reach out to me at anytime with questions!)
And, for the cream layer - I've removed the work of having to whip raw eggs into stiff peaks, and replaced it with a lovely semi-sweet whipped cream, mascarpone cheese and just a hint of the zing from a lemon to keep this rich dessert lovely, light and perfect to end any style of meal!
And, while I'm doing this recipe LIVE tomorrow - this is a great addition to any Virtual Workshop! So if you run a brewery, or just happen to love a good stout - reach out to me today to see how we can work together to feature the drink that you love in a really new and refreshing way!
Cheers, and Happy International Beer Day, All!
