I do like to cook, and I also homebrew. They are a great way to take something from it's raw initial ingredients and finish with something fantastic. So I do see some correlation between brewing and cooking as it's a form of creative expression. Also, I do like to drink while I cook. And at times, i've been cooking something, whilst having a beer, and thought "Man, I bet some of this beer in this sauce would be great!" and gone for it. It's turned out amazing. The other night I was making a cardamom based curry with apples, mint and raisins, and a splash of my homebrew in the sauce was great!
