Biscotti with your beer?

Mar 6, 2014 8:39:26 PM

We know from customer feedback (and our experience) that flavors of our biscotti pair nicely with different beverages and some of our favorites are:

 

  • Orange Cranberry and white wine
  • Double Chocolate with red wine
  • Cherry Chocolate Chip with a glass of milk at bedtime

 

We often get asked which biscotti goes with beer and our usual response is skip the biscotti and grab a pretzel.  However, we decided to do a little research and see what flavor biscotti does would go with beer.  Surprisingly there is a beer-focused website, Draft Magazine, that did the work for us with a little adaptation.  The link is http://draftmag.com/features/pairs-beer-cookies/.  Here is what they recommend

 

Pumpkin coookie + Evolution Jacques Au Lantern:  (From September though January we offer a Pumpkin Spice biscotti)


Pumpkin cookie and pumpkin beer? Seems like a no-brainer. But what works so well with this particular duo is the way the cookie’s one-note sweet pumpkin flavor bathes in spicy nutmeg and cinnamon bubbles, taking the beer and the cookie to new heights. 

 

Double Chocolate Chip & Bell’s Special Double Cream Stout (Double Chocolate biscotti)
Milk and cookies: They’re a natural pair. This silky milk stout’s chocolate-coffee notes merge with this gooey cookie, boosting the already extreme chocolate flavor. While sweetness takes hold, the beer’s slightly tart, sweet milk flavor joins with gentle roasted bitterness to cut through the chocolate. Not aggressively hoppy or carbonated, this brew leaves behind just enough chocolate sweetness to create a rich take on a classic pairing. ALSO TRY: Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, Left Hand Milk Stout. 

 

Send us any of your flavor pairing ideas and we will happily research them.

National Biscotti Day

Mar 3, 2014 10:21:06 AM

Our company, Biscotti Goddess, is sponsoring National Biscotti Day. 

Based upon some searching we did, it appears there seems to be confusion around the existence of a day dedicated to biscotti.  It sometimes has been bundled in with Coffee Cake Day (April 7) and National Cookie Day (December 4).  We feel it makes sense to us to match it with National Coffee Day on September 29 and submitted it to Chase’s Calendar of Events to start in 2015.  

So get ready - September 29, 2014 will be the first National Biscotti Day!

Just Perfect!

Why is Biscotti Goddess biscotti better than the rest?  Simple.  Taste and texture. 

 

Taste

 

Have you ever had a piece of biscotti and not sure what flavor it was?  Was it almond or hazelnut?  In order to find out you have to look at the bag it came in.  That is not Biscotti Goddess biscotti.  When you bite into one of our biscotti, you will know the flavor without doubt.  Whether you like anise, cherries or lemon - we have a flavor for you.


Texture

 

Traditional biscotti is hard - "tooth chipping" hard.  In order to eat the cookie, you have to dip in coffee.That is not Biscotti Goddess biscotti.  While there is crunch and you can dip if you want to, you just don't have to dunk.  Some describe our cookies as "crunchy cake."  You can enjoy with your coffee but it also goes great with wine, glass of milk or as a snack on its own.

 

That is why we say our biscotti is "Not too hard. Not too soft. Just Perfect!"
