Just in time for Dry July, hassle-free meal kit company My Food Bag has teamed up with Wellington-based brewery Garage Project and their Tiny non-alcoholic beer to bring a flavour punch to some of their upcoming recipes.
Foodies can enjoy a weekly recipe in their My Choice bag that is perfectly paired with Garage Project’s Tiny non-alcoholic beer. The exclusive Tiny 4-pack is also for sale as an add on in the My Food Bag Kitchen offering.
The local partnership came to life after Garage Project co-founder and Head Brewer, Pete Gillespie spent time in My Food Bag’s development kitchen with Development Kitchen Manager, Ella Krauts to create five different spice blends that bring out the flavour of the non-alcoholic beer.
Using the bespoke spice blends, these dishes include Fried Chicken Bao with Zesty Lemon Chilli Pickles, Indian Battered Fish with Gunpowder Potatoes and Chilli Greens, and Wok Fried Prawn Mee Goreng Sprinkled with Pineapple & Peanut Blend. Each meal kit is supported by a recipe card with the unique tasting notes for foodies to gain access to the full pairing experience at home – how good!
Released late last year, the Tiny non-alcoholic beer has continued to grow in popularity as more Kiwis opt for non-alcoholic options while still enjoying the taste they’ve come to expect from the regular alcohol counterparts.
Tiny is specifically fermented to provide all the big, juicy hop character of a regular Hazy IPA – just without the alcohol. Gillespie sees the partnership as an opportunity to provide Kiwis all the big flavour, without the booze, so the pub experience with gourmet delights can be enjoyed from the comfort of home.
Further extending the tasting collaboration, My Food Bag has also developed a cookbook to help foodies whip up delicious dishes, which can be purchased in a Tiny Non-Alcoholic Beer, Spice Kit & Cookbook Bundle for just $27.99.
Deliveries begin July 3, with other flavour-packed dishes on offer including Cheesy Chilli Chicken Burger with Caramelised Pineapple Salsa and Sticky BBQ Chicken Nibbles with Chipotle Salted Polenta Chips and Wedge Salad.
