VCA Member Spotlight

October 11, 2017

Executive Chef M. Glenn Pruden C.E.C., A.A.C. of the University of Richmond, just finished a year long beer brewing program and has received the Beer Brewer Professional Certificate.

He has been organizing and conducting a teaching luncheon for ten years called Spider in the Kitchen. For one particular luncheon, he decided he was going to use beer in every single dish. Having done beer pairing luncheons before, he was ready to take it one step further by actually incorporating the beer into the ingredients of all of his dishes. He goes into fine detail about how to pair styles of beer with particular ingredients, such as when using vary bitter beers such as an IPA, you should offset the bitterness with bright and fruity flavors.
