Jack Stein, Chef Director of The Rick Stein Collection will continue to work with St Austell Brewery in 2021
Chef Director of the world-renowned Rick Stein Restaurants, Jack Stein, is partnering with fellow Cornish-born brand, St Austell Brewery once again in 2021. Jack has been collaborating with the brewery since 2018. To kick off the year, Jack and St Austell Brewery have combined their respective food and beverage expertise to develop a series of dishes for Veganuary, paired with St Austell Brewery’s range of vegan-friendly beers.
Jack Stein (ambassador of the brewery since 2018) has drawn up a recipe collection inspired by and perfect for pairing with St Austell’s most popular beer brands including Tribute Pale Ale, Sayzon Lager and Proper Job IPA. Jack’s carefully crafted vegan recipes include the likes of a Warm salad of pumpkin, rocket and dukkah (working its earthy flavours with Tribute’s zesty notes), Miso glazed aubergine, spiced pumpkin and cavolo nero (the spice in which is a great match for Proper Job IPA), and Panna Cotta with ruby grapefruit (working with Sayzon’s notes of peppery spice and citrus, refreshing against the creaminess of the panna cotta).

Jack’s partnership with St Austell Brewery is a natural fit – the two joining forces to champion the best of the South West together.
St Austell’s Brewery is one of Cornwall’s oldest businesses.. Founded in 1851, and still family-owned today, the brewery also owns 180 pubs across the West Country. It’s also the largest wholesale drinks distributor in the South West and supplies many of the UK’s pubs, bars and supermarkets – including Rick Stein Restaurants.
Chef Jack Stein’s established culinary career started in Padstow, Cornwall – aged 16 – at the eponymous Seafood Restaurant, and has taken him around the world to Le Pegelaide in Paris and Tetsuya’s in Sydney. He has since laid roots in Cornwall where he holds the title of Chef Director of all the Rick Stein Restaurants. His love for food and travel has driven his passion for championing the finest local, seasonal produce in cooking: reflected in the ethos of all Rick Stein Restaurants.
Laura McKay, head of marketing for St Austell Brewery’s beer and brands said: “We’re delighted to be working with Jack again next year – a Cornish chef who shares of passion for quality local produce and great tasting recipes. We’re really excited to be bringing the art of food and beer pairing to life. The nuanced flavours in beer have the power to enhance a range of flavours – there’s a brew to complement every dish.”
Jack Stein, Chef Director of The Rick Stein Group said: “Having grown up in Cornwall it’s really exciting to be continuing to work with one of the most successful and well-known Cornish brewers in the country.
He continues: “We’ve all had a strange start to 2021, but there’s no better time to get into cooking at home and experimenting with vegan dishes. Watch this space for more beer-inspired recipe selections throughout the course of 2021.
