Nicole here again, as you know I have a serious passion for cooking. This week's activity: Food Pairing with Whiskey at the LBCO with Chef, Jamie and Mariah from Algonquin College. The event was held in Ottawa to showcase Canadian Rye and highlight the flavours in creative food pairings. The first complementary pairing was a Cranberry Bread Pudding with Brie & Whiskey Glazed Bacon. It was paired with a Maple-Rye cocktail made with cider and ginger beer. I enjoyed the combination of the sweet bread pudding with the savoury, smoky bacon and the creamy brie. The flavours in this dish were enhanced by the maple rye that was used to glaze the bacon.
