Match of the week
Raspberry beer with chocolate and raspberries
If you’re looking for something really original to impress your Valentine next weekend try this fabulous pairing.
You might, if you were a wine drinker, think beer was hardly romantic but you’d be wrong. Belgian style raspberry beers like Liefmans Frambozen and New Glarus Raspberry Tart (only available in the US, as far as I know, sadly) have a wonderfully refreshing tart raspberry flavour that makes a brilliant counterpoint to a rich chocolate dessert.
I like to serve them chilled in a martini glass or other pretty dessert glass paired with a chocolate roulade filled with raspberries and cream but given that a whole chocolate roulade is a bit big for two - even two ardent chocoholics - you could just dress up a shop bought chocolate dessert with cream and raspberries. Easy, stunning and seductive!
