Jack Stein and St Austell Brewery unite for menu innovation

Jack Stein, chef director

Jack Stein, chef director of Rick Stein Restaurants, is partnering with fellow Cornish-born brand St Austell Brewery to develop a series of beer-inspired recipe selections.

Mr Stein has collaborated with the brewery for the last two years and they will kick off their latest tie-up by combining their respective food and beverage expertise to develop a series of dishes for Veganuary.

The dishes will be paired with St Austell Brewery’s range of vegan-friendly beers.

Mr Stein has drawn up a recipe collection inspired by and perfect for pairing with St Austell’s most popular beer brands including Tribute Pale Ale, Sayzon Lager and Proper Job IPA.

The vegan recipes include the likes of a warm salad of pumpkin, rocket and dukkah, miso glazed aubergine, spiced pumpkin and cavolo nero, and Panna Cotta with ruby grapefruit.

He said: “Having grown up in Cornwall it’s really exciting to be continuing to work with one of the most successful and well-known Cornish brewers in the country.

“We’ve all had a strange start to 2021, but there’s no better time to get into cooking at home and experimenting with vegan dishes.”

Mr Stein added that he would be releasing more beer-inspired dishes throughout the course of 2021.

St Austell’s Brewery is one of Cornwall’s oldest businesses. Founded in 1851, and still family-owned today, the brewery also owns 180 pubs across the West Country.

It’s also the largest wholesale drinks distributor in the South West and supplies many of the UK’s pubs, bars and supermarkets, including Rick Stein Restaurants.
