In this episode, we had the good fortune to have Jeff Dietzman and Ned Steel from LUCK in studio with us to talk about beer and food pairing and cooking with beer—-a topic near and dear to every homebrewer and craft beer lover’s heart. LUCK stands for Local Urban Craft Kitchen and is the end result “dream restaurant” of co-owners, Dietzman, Steel, and Chef Daniel Pittman. It is located in the Trinity Groves area of West Dallas and offers a variety of craft beer inspired dishes, along with a 40 tap craft beer selection that focuses specifically on local breweries. Their food is also locally sourced when possible and can be described as American comfort food with a Texas twist, which includes dishes that range from the delicious Signature Pastrami (unlike any you’ve had before) to beer ice cream made with beer from their tap wall.   With this episode, we hope to begin a continued conversation about the many creative outlets related to the mix of food and beer and cooking and brewing. So, beer pairing and beyond. With LUCK in house, we hope they can help educate you on the great potential of combining good beer with good food, whether it’s preparing, serving, or simply enjoying with good folk.
