One Pot Showdown

Stew, chili, chicken and dumplings, roast, and potatoes — these are some of the dishes Saint Arnold Brewing Company is suggesting culinary wizards create for its One Pot Showdown today. The cook-off contest has only one stipulation: The recipe has to include one of Saint Arnold’s famous brews.

We’re got a few suggestions of our own: Why not simmer some animelles de moutons frites, a French dish made from sheep testicles, in a stew of Saint Arnold Winter Stout? Or whip up some káu-bah, the Taiwanese variation of dog meat, with a splash of Saint Arnold Brown Ale? Get crazy, people, and make the judges feel like they’re the ones being tested. Sampling starts at 1 p.m. 2522 Fairway Park Drive. For tickets and information, call 713-686-9494 or www.saintarnold.com. $15.
