Quilon launches beer and food matching menu

Published:  10 June, 2011

London's Michelin starred Indian restaurant, Quilon, has unveiled a beer and food matching menu devoted solely to British beer.

It comes on the back of restaurateur and food writer Mark Hix and beer guru Rupert Ponsonby's launch of the Britons Backing Beer movement, back in January.

The Quilon menu was launched at the second Britons Backing Beer event attended by brewers, chefs, farmers, maltsters, catering schools and beer-brewing celebrities, and which is sponsored by Quilon and the British Beer & Pub Association.

The initiative intends to forge closer links between those involved in growing, retailing, serving or legislating on beer in the UK, as well as boosting the service of beer at tax-payer funded events.

Head chef, Sriram Aylur, said: "We have up to ten customers a day choosing one or other of our beer menus and the number of corporate parties wanting our 'beer experience' is growing. Beer is Britain's national drink so it makes sense that we have a menu that showcases the British beer industry."

The five course menu includes lotus stem chop with mango sauce and spiced stir-fried oysters, paired with Fuller's Bengal Lancer and baked black cod paired with the delicate vanilla and citrus of Innis & Gunn Blonde Oak Aged Beer from Edinburgh.
