Feed The Resistance: Shrimp Jambalaya is paired with G.O.A.T. Maibock from Wisconsin Brewing Co.

I’m actually a little disappointed in this one.  Don’t get me wrong, I was super-excited to cook this Shrimp Jambalaya from the Dooky Chase Cookbook…but it just didn’t turn out right.  I can’t blame the book – Leah Chase was the Queen of Creole Cooking…so I gotta blame the cook.  And that would be me.

While my game was off a little today – Dee’s was not!  I picked this particular recipe and this particular cookbook, because Tuesday is Mardi Gras, so I wanted to do something with a bit of a New Orleans flavor.  The beer that Dee paired with it doesn’t have that New Orleans flavor, but just like Mardi Gras is a great springtime tradition in NOLA, Bock season is a great Wisconsin springtime tradition, and this year’s Maibock from Wisconsin Brewing Company is out!  It’s called G.O.A.T., and it paired perfectly with the Jambalaya (or it would have, if I had made the Jambalaya perfectly).
