Exciting Dinner from KAUM Jakarta X Stark Beer
In search of the best local taste of Indonesia, KAUM Jakarta collaborated with Stark Beer to create a one-night-only food pairing dinner.
KAUM Jakarta is a place for everyone craving for true Indonesian food experience. As part of their effort to explore the taste of Indonesia, they work together with local craft beer brewery from Bali, called Stark Beer.
With craft beer wave is steadily on a rise on global and national scale, KAUM Jakarta and Stark Beer surf on it by creating food pairing dinner on Saturday, October, 21st. Stark Beer prepared their best unique beers while KAUM Jakarta spent many nights to present the best pairing from their menu. “The process to find the best pairing was fun, the team at KAUM literally tried to pair each beer with all our menu before settling on the pairing,” said Lisa Virgiano , KAUM Brand Director.
After Bona Budhisurya as founder of Stark Beer explained about craft beer, then the 7-course dinner started. The atmosphere was very casual where each table busy digging down and discussing about each pairing.
There were two of my personal pairing favorites, the fried duck sambal mango with dark wheat beer and tempe bacem with wheat beer. The savory juicy duck meat with perfect crackling skin, combined with the sourness of sambal mango, locked by deep flavor of dark wheat beer. The other pairing was a surprise, because who would have thought that traditional dish like tempe bacem with dominant sweet flavor actually goes along together with beer, especially the wheat beer. It’s a combination that you just have to taste to believe.
KAUM Jakarta and Stark Beer successfully filled our bellies and put smiles on everyone’s faces that evening.
