INTERVIEW

FEATURE

Let the

food do the

talking

Meet Mohan Abraham who has

just joined the team at Beamish

Hall’s restaurant, The Stables.

What made you want to be a chef and

how long have you been doing it?

My cooking career started when I was a little

boy. My mother’s an amazing woman and

cooking for our big family was never easy

but I learnt a great deal from her.

Her passion and enthusiasm have definitely

inspired me and I’ve been a chef for 18 years

now.

What do you look for when you create

a new dish or menu? What’s your main

considerations?

I look anywhere and everywhere! Reading

industry publications, blogs, social media…

I’m always absorbing new ideas. I’ll discuss

ideas, trends, experiences and new ingredients

with my colleagues and our suppliers of

local produce.

What’s proving to be the most popular dish

on your menu this month and why do you

think that is?

Seafood and locally sourced Northumberland

meats are always a winner. Healthy options

are on the rise and we provide dishes which

are both healthy and nutritional. We collaborate

with local business so we can supply quality,

regional food and continue to support other

local business.

Are you territorial in the kitchen!?

My Wife. She’s a talented person in the kitchen

The #shelfie - a chef’s five must have herbs

and spices always available on the shelf!

What are yours?

Fresh Basil, Thyme, Rosemary, Lemongrass

and Mint.

What’s your favourite cuisine and why?

My passion for cooking can’t allow me to

choose! It’s like choosing your favourite movie.

Given my mood, the weather and location,

it can all change whether British, Italian,

Indian, Thai and so on. My love for it all makes

it impossible to decide!

BEER DAY BRITAIN

Thursday 15 June is Beer Day Britain, a day when we are

positively encouraged to raise a glass and say cheers to beer!

Chosen for the day the Magna Carta was sealed on 15 June

1215 with Article 35 declaring:

“Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure

for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure

for corn, namely the London quarter.”

In medieval times a London quarter was

the equivalent of two pints so while our

glasses have got smaller, our love for beer

remains!

In 2015, the Community Pubs Minister

(yes there really is one so let’s raise a glass to

his job!) released figures announcing Britain

has returned to its rightful role as a global

brewing powerhouse with a new brewery

opening every other day.

With no signs of craft beer going flat, figures

continued to rise throughout 2016 and thanks

to the popularity of the pint, there’s now over

1,700 breweries in the UK.

From a seasonal pint of British bitter, locally

produced lager, boozy barley wines to hoppy

craft brews, there really is a pint for everyone!

But what do you do when a pint just isn’t

enough?

Well, you head over to London Brewery

Tours who will happily quench your thirst

by getting you up close and personal with

brewers so you can hear their stories, learn

why they brew the beers they brew and

sample new and exciting beers matched

with charcuterie, cheese and chocolate!

They offer five different tours, available for

individuals, small groups or as corporate

tours for up to 20 people.

20


BEER DAY BRITAIN

The Bermondsey Micro-Brewery Tour takes

in the famous Bermondsey Beer Mile and its

ten breweries or enjoy the vibrant Street Art

and Craft Beer Tour in Peckham.

The East London Craft Beer Tap Tour starts

at the White Hart Brew Pub and finishes in

Redchurch Brewery, Bethnall Green’s most

chilled and funky micro-brewery with some

seriously great craft beers, or take the

Southwark Brewery Tour and Tastings

or the Fourpure Brewery Tour which shows

the steps needed to make 6,000 litre batches,

starting from the grain and ending with the

finished beer!

For a flavour of the Bristol brewing scheme

it’s all aboard HMS Hops for a Craft Beer

Boat and Brewery Tour! This private ferry

sails down the canal with a tutored tasting of

Bristol based Crane Beer before a behind the

scenes tour of the Moor Brewery back on

dry land.

A sobering 20 minute walk follows to the

Beer Emporium where a selection of cask and

keg Bristol beers accompanied with meat and

cheese parings can be enjoyed!

The award-winning Thornbridge Brewery

in the Peak District is playing its part in the

British beer boom too! First brewed in 2005

in the grounds of Thornbridge Hall, they focus

on cask beers using traditional recipes with a

modern day twist.

They now operate from two sites, with a

state-of-the-art brewery and bottling line at

Bakewell and The Hall, where experimentation,

barrel ageing and creating premium bottled

products leads the way. With over 350 national

and international awards, delighting drinkers

of cask, keg or bottled beer is a passion this

brewery excels in. Their 90 minute tour at the

Bakewell site offers an introduction to the

brewing process with sample beers served in

a Thornbridge branded glass, which people

can take home.

21


BEER DAY BRITAIN

A walking tour of Manchester takes in

three breweries. Smell the hops and grains at

the Beer Nouveau Brewery before visiting the

taproom at the Alphabet Brewery & GRUB

which has live DJs and amazing street art

on the walls. Finish in the Cloudwater Brewery,

recognised across the word for award-winning

beers, which you can enjoy on tap, at

your leisure!

North Brewing Co leads the way with a

tour in Leeds. Opened in November 2015 with

three signature beers it now has a core range

of five as well as a number of one off creations.

Next, nestled in the historic Thornton’s arcade

is Tall Boys Beer Market, specialising in rare

imports from the States, and sticking with the

theme, Tapped is an American style brew

pub with an impressive range of keg and cask

beer. Completing the walking tour is Northern

Monk Brewery, which pays homage to the

monastic heritage of brewing.

If you find yourself in Norfolk or Suffolk you’re

guaranteed to be served a pint of Adnams.

Established back in 1872, this independent

company based in Southwold is producing

around 85,000 barrels a year and until 1953,

and a for a period between 1970 to 2006, casks

of Adnams Ale were still being delivered to

Southwold pubs by horse and dray.

Today distribution is from the company’s

state-of-the-art centre which features the UK’s

largest living roof. Known as the Sky Garden,

it’s made from a variety of sedum species

which help insulate the building. Rain stored in

the plants is harvested and used to flush staff

toilets and clean company vehicles. Combined

with solar panels, the company has reduced its

energy bills by 50%.

The Adnams brewery tour last 60 minutes

followed by a 30 minute tutored beer tasting.

Visitors will see one of the most modern

breweries in the country, including a

self-cleaning brew stream!
