Back in October 2016 we started to run a monthly food and beer pairing evening with Sentinel Brewhouse, who are based at 178 Shoreham Street. These events have become hugely popular with the most recent selling out in 14 minutes flat.
The secret to the success has definitely been the energy that Sentinel’s Head Chef, Brez Barwise, has put in to the menu along with the passion and knowledge added by Alex Barlow, Sentinel’s Head Brewer and MD to match the beers to the food. It’s no easy task, given that the team don’t know what’s on the menu until the day!
Working alongside Sentinel has been, and continues to be, a fantastic collaboration for The Real Junk Food Project Sheffield. It’s the highlight of our month and not only allows us to feed more bellies but allows our volunteers to gain new skills in a professional kitchen environment. The Sentinel team also volunteer their time on the night to open up, manage the bar and help serve the meals.
The menus have varied from ‘Jerky Turkey’, Lamb Madras, Clementine Sorbet, Wort Crusted Lamb Shoulder, Mushroom Galettes to the unforgettable Christmas Pudding Ice Cream! There is always something for everyone with meat eaters, vegans, vegetarians and everything in-between catered for. Brez and the team work with the wort, hops and grains to add them in to the dishes to ensure full usage of the brewerybby products. Take a look at some of the delicious meals…
If you’ve missed out on tickets so far, don’t worry, there will be plenty more opportunities and Sentinel also run a daily menu throughout the week from brunch to Sunday lunch.
