Beer Birthday: Lucy Saunders

because beer is food: in cooking, at the table, and by the glass …

So begins the website of beer cook Lucy Saunders, whose birthday is today. Lucy has done much to promote both cooking with beer and enjoying food with beer through her books and other writings. She’s a treasure, in more ways than one. Join me in wishing Lucy a very happy birthday Lucy.

    Lucy- hope you have hoisted many good brews in celebration! Many thanx for including me & the San Andreas Malts’ Oyster BBQ in your 2006 “Grilling With Beer” (& to Jay for the nice photos & write-up)! In 2011, it’ll be on Easter Sunday – if you’re in town, come on down (you too, Jay)!
