I have no pictures of these together because I was elbow deep in a chicken, half-pissed and trying to juggle a beer glass and carving duties. I was also busy discovering perhaps the most delicious Food and Beer Pairing of All Time - FABPOAT! Simply this: roast a chicken with lots of salt and pepper add some paprika, garlic, thyme and olive oil. When itís cooked take it out of the oven and at the same time take a bottle of geuze from the fridge. Pour the beer out, strip the skin off the chicken and eat it with the beer. Itís insanely good. Salty, crispy, fatty skin and sour, citrusy, peppery beer. Itís just perfect. And itís not just chicken skin either, sour beer is also incredible with pork scratchings and I had a food and beer epiphany at GBBF last year (http://pencilandspoon.blogspot.com/2009/08/gbbf-take-1.html) Ė a Montegioco Mummia (http://www.ratebeer.com/Ratings/Beer/Beer-Ratings.asp?BeerID=92852) with those festival pork scratchings. Sometimes itís the simple things which have the biggest impact and this is just about the best beer snack going.
