Jack Stein extends partnership with St Austell Brewery

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, to pair with St Austell Brewery’s range of vegan-friendly bottled beers – including Tribute Pale Ale, Korev Lager and Proper Job IPA.

Jack’s partnership with St Austell Brewery is a natural fit, the two joining forces to champion the best of the South West.

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 really is 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 later this year.”

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. It’s 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.

Jack’s first selection of recipes – to celebrate Veganuary – are now available here:
