Discover cider and food pairing with CAMRA

CAMRA has published its latest video guide teaching viewers the secrets behind pairing cider with food, put together by drinks educator Alison Taffs.

In the exclusive video, Alison is sharing her passion for cider and perry as an appreciated fine beverage. She will outline the principles behind matching food with different types or styles of cider, and help viewers understand the science behind how their senses experience food alongside cider.

It comes as CAMRA volunteers around the country celebrate Cider Month, which runs throughout the month of October to coincide with the harvest season. It also coincides with the launch of a new Crowdfunder campaign to help fund a new book from Gabe Cook entitled Modern British Cider, which aims to shining a light on the rise of craft cider and the incredible diversity that exists within cider in the UK today.

Alison, who is a drinks educator with 20 years of experience, as well as the co-founder of the Grape Society and landlady of the Hop Inn micropub in Hornchurch, said: “It has been great to work on this video guide for CAMRA’s Learn & Discover. I hope it educates a new generation of cider drinkers about the art of cider and food pairing and that they can put their new skills into action with family and friends!”

CAMRA’s online learning platform is home to lots of new content from writers, educators and experts. There will be new guides, articles, videos and audio content added every week exploring everything there is to know about beer, cider, perry and pubs.

Alex Metcalfe, CAMRA’s Learning & Discovery Manager says: “Alison Taffs has a great passion for cider and perry, and I am excited to share her appreciation and two decades of knowledge with a new audience on our Learn & Discover platform.”

All new content includes free intros and tasters so visitors to the site can get a feel for the full access enjoyed by CAMRA members. To access member-only content, CAMRA members simply need to sign in at the top of the webpage with their membership number and password. Non-members can join the campaign for just £26.50*/year.
