Roasted Chicken with Root Vegetables, Braised Kale with Shallots & Gouda

I have been wanting to re-visit these two recipes: Roasted Chicken with Root Vegetables and Braised Kale with Shallots & Gouda. Plus, I wanted the chicken carcass to make some stock.

I had two bottles that I have been saving for this meal: Funky Roots – a beer brewed with parsnips – from Mollusk and The Commons [R. I. P.] Farm-to-Market which was brewed with white sage.


Chili Coconut Stout Braised Pork Ribs, Curried Collard Greens

This is another recipe from The Beeroness. And, like last time, I used Santiam‘s Pirate Rum Barrel Coconut Stout. The only thing that I could think of to serve with this was the Coconut Curried Collard Greens.

Since both of these dishes have coconut in them, I figured I would go with the Saison Bruge – a saison brewed with Cacao nibs – from Upright.
