Cooking with the Q: Pork Belly Burnt Ends by 1000 Islands Brewing Company

As Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) has always been there to support his family, Jason Curry, owner and operator of the Thousand Islands Brewing Company, wanted to support QCH in return. Taking one of his core and much-loved products – the 1000 Island Brewing Company Lager – Jason redesigned the label to pay tribute to Spurs & Sparkles, a fundraising event hosted by Wesley Clover Parks in support of QCH Foundation. 

The small-batch beer was 100% donated by Jason to help raise even more funds for QCH Foundation. Guests were able to enjoy the cool and refreshing brew while taking in the excitement of the evening. 

A huge thank you to Jason Curry and 1000 Islands Brewing Company for their tremendous efforts to support charitable causes in our community. Along with raising funds for QCH Foundation through Spurs and Sparkles 2023, they have also shared a favourite recipe with us for September’s Cooking with the Q!

This savoury Pork Belly recipe is delicious year round, but perfect for dinner on those cool September evenings. This recipe pairs nicely with a refreshing 1000 Islands Brewing Company East Coast IPA! Enjoy.
