SPRUCE UP THE HUMBLE ROAST WITH BOURBON
The British love their roast. This love story goes way back to the 15th century when the Yeomen Yarders, royal guardsmen to King Henry VII would feast on slow roasted beef every Sunday after lunch. Ever since, the British have stuck to their much loved tradition of Sunday Roast, often adding carrots, potatoes, parsnips to the meat. Their wayward trading pursuits made the entire world fall slowly in love with roasts.
Roasting is synonymous with the comfort of home-cooked meals. But roasting is humble. Roasting vegetables, even more so. Roasted vegetables may be a mouthful but they aren’t quite fancy. As much as some of us may love our simple roasts, why miss out on the chance to jazz it up a little, with a splash of good old bourbon? The Black Maple Hill Bourbon, with its hint of spice and citrus pairs really well with the sweetness of vegetables. Read on to find out how to treat yourself to some bourbon maple roasted veggies.
