Cibi & Custom BrewCrafters Pair Food & Beer

On Thursday evening, I had the pleasure of photographing a cooking class at Cibi Deliziosi, located at 3894 Rush-Mendon Rd. Mendon, NY. The theme for the evening was appropriately a Super Bowl Party Menu & beer pairing with products from Custom BrewCrafters (CBC). The Menu included chips & dip (Creamy Avocado & Shrimp Dip; Roasted Pepper, Artichoke & White Bean Hummus), Scotch Ale Fondue, and Beer Braised Chili Stew. The class was led by Cibi chef/owner Rosita, with assistance from three CBC brewmasters. Beers included Canandaigua Lake Ale, English Pale Ale, Scotch Ale, and Double Dark Cream Porter.

Check out Cibi's website for upcoming classes, including a "Mardi-Gras Party" on Tues. 2/09 and an evening of "Local, Seasonal & Natural" food items on Thurs. 2/25.
