VOTE FOR CANADA'S NEXT GREAT BEER FLAVOUR
INTRODUCING MRS MONKFISH
I'm Hilary Sturzaker but you can call me Mrs. Monkfish for short. With the exception of Mr. Monkfish and the brand new insatiable Master Monkfish I've got two passions in life - food and beer. And when these two passions collide, which they frequently do, I'm in heaven.
Food is what I know but beer is in my blood. Tis true!
Growing up in a brewing family wasn't an easy childhood. The daughter of a master brewer in the Midlands I frequently smelt of hops, friends kept their distance, they weren't daft. And lugging beer crates around wasn't as idyllic as you might think at the tender age of three. However, it instilled a depth of character and an inquisitive soul that has enabled me to crawl, walk and quite often run along my chosen path of culinary adventures. As a child of the seventies my family grew our own, brewed our own, baked many, many, cakes and often dappled in wine (with mixed results, who'd have thought pea pods would make great wine? My Dad, that's who!)...Tom and Barbara Good should have been worried, perhaps they were? Yes, my career was mapped out from day one.
It's taken a while...I've eaten, drunk, written, spoken, spouted about my foodie encounters which eventually led me to founding mymonkfish.com, a window to my inner food filled soul and an opportunity to share my musings online and in 'real life' too.
Sharing my love of food with Innis & Gunn has started another journey for me. I’ve been able to introduce them to the makers – the foodies having their own adventures, the ones who are doing something different, away from the norm, who pop up unexpectedly and who satisfy your growing appetites for a dining ‘experience’.
Matching the Innis & Gunn range with certain foods is just the beginning, using it as an ingredient is where the fun really starts - from ‘Rum Finish’ marshmallows to ‘Original’ venison stew, ‘Stout’ sourdough bread to ‘Porter’ BBQ sauce, the collaborations are endless. I’m very excited to be able to share my food and beer adventures here, with you. Speak soon.
