Over the Christmas holiday, Chris and I attended a dinner party over at our friend EW’s house. We decided to bring a bottle of wine and this bread. I know EW is a HUGE bread lover so I thought I’d bake him a loaf. In the past, I have baked him savory breads but he seemed to love beer bread more than others. I’m guessing it’s the dense texture and the crusty top.
I know the photo doesn’t look like much but this bread is sooooooo good, especially when it’s served warm. The pepper really gives this bread a kick and pairs so nicely with the chorizo and manchego. I think next time, I would use some rosemary and parmesan cheese with some coarse sea salt on top. Enjoy!
