Complex. Sophisticated. Extraordinary. These are all words we love to use when discussing our favorite gins. But how often do we get to use these words when describing our very own cooking?
Well, Matt Van Wyk and Albert Van Wyk, the award-winning team that brought us the Ginologist gin label, is now releasing something, in many ways, even more exciting: The Ginologist Cookbook.
Gin is already such a marvelous example of ingredients working together to provide a drinking experience unlike any other. So it makes sense why cooking with gin as an ingredient can do the same with food.
But you can’t just start pouring gin into your favorite meal (well, you could, although we don’t guarantee the final results). Swapping out milk for gin in your cornbread recipe probably won’t have the impact you’re looking for. That’s where The Ginologist Cook comes in.
With this book, which includes 150 delicious recipes, you’ll discover brand new ways to infuse classic recipes with gin. And the beautiful thing about cooking with gin is you can dramatically change the final result based on the gin you use.
Take, for example, their Chili Citrus Oysters and Citrus-Roasted Beetroot, both of which use the Citrus Gin. Or how about the Rosemary & Thyme Rubbed Lamb With Ginologist Floral Gin? All of that sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? And don’t worry, there are plenty of dessert options like the Gin & Tonic Victoria Sponge Cake, plus all kinds of fun cocktail recipes.
Maybe you have a favorite pink gin made with grapefruit and raspberry. Or perhaps you’ve always loved a strong London Dry gin thanks to the bursting junipers. Well your gin will impact the final taste, so every recipe you find in Ginologist can have a million different outcomes.
But don’t worry if that makes you nervous. The book fully explains which gin is recommended. So if you don’t want to guess, the book takes all that guess work out.
And even if you’re not interested in cooking with gin, the book itself is loaded with beautiful food photographs, all of which have been prepared using Ginologist’s award winning gin! So check out the book. As gin lovers we absolutely love it, and we have a hunch you will as well!
