In conjunction with Saint Patrick’s Day, March is another month for us to rejoice over. This March, the merry people at GUINNESS® are bringing back the fun to Malaysians with a month long celebration of good friends, good food and of course, pints of GUINNESS®
Do you know that Saint Patrick’s Day, a holiday celebrated internationally on 17 March is actually rooted in Irish tradition?
And in Malaysia, we are having a month-long celebration from 1st March 2011 to 31st March 2011. ”,featuring an array of exciting parties, fun activities and a host of other GUINNESS® promotions.
On the 17th of March 2011, there is a street celebration at Changkat Bukit Bintang. Remember to be there to join in the fun, together with the entertainers, dancers, buskers and beautiful GUINNESS® ambassadors.
Thanks to Hui Ping and GUINNESS®, we had an early Saint Patrick’s Day celebration at Fitou Brasserie, a lovely bar cum restaurant located at the Water Front. They are running this St. Patrick’s Festival Celebration Menu at Fitou Brasserie where the following three ala-carte GUINNESS® infused dishes (RM 34++) comes with a FREE pint of Guinness @RM48 nett.
1) Irish Beef Stew with Guinness served with Carrots & Potatoes
The distinctively flavored Irish beef stew recipe is a favorite on St. Patrick’s Day. This is one hearty one dish meal and the stout beer really adds a great flavor. Although it is very flavorful, the beef chunks were quite tough that requires a certain extent of jaw exercise.
2) Sauteed Guinness Beef Chunks with French Beans & Carrot Sticks
The dish may looked simple but it was bursting with awesome goodness. Juicy and tender, the beef chunks were well prepared. . Using Guinness as the braising liquid adds a good, subtle flavor to the gravy too.
3) Pork Wellington stuffed with Apricots, served with Potatoes & Guinness Cream Sauce
The pork wellington is my favourite dish of all! A spin off from the usual beef wellington, the chef has done a very good job with the pork wellington. The pastry keeps the pork incredibly moist and juicy still just slightly pink in the center and the apricot bits gives it a tangy sweet flavour. Drench it with a generous amount of Guinness Cream Sauce and you are in heaven!
Topped with a crunchy, caramelized layer, the Creme Brulee was custardy and creamy.
Putting on hat and get our mood ready for the Saint Patrick’s Day!
