Upper West Hosts Macallan and Highland Park Tasting, Scotch Around the Clockâ€


Upper West Restaurant is known for its innovative dining events. One in particular, is the very popular pairing dinners. The newest offering takes place on November 14th. The Macallan and Highland Park Tasting, Scotch Around the Clock†will feature a five-course menu and pairing which will stimulate even the most discriminating lovers of Scotch.

Executive chef Nick Shipp admits that creating a truly satisfying pairing dinner is not always easy, but he gets a lot of help from the Brand Ambassadors, plus he enjoys a good challenge. He describes his process, “I’m a bit of a mad scientist when it comes to pairing. Scotch being such a powerful spirit, this time around I wanted to pair subtle sweetness with the smokey undertones from the scotches. I’m also going a bit “molecular” this time around and doing some more unconventional approaches that I haven’t really tried before.â€

The dinner begins with Black Grouse accompanied by cold smoked Scottish salmon accompanied with caraway yogurt and dill. Then next, enjoy Macallan 12 year with a bread wrapped poached egg, and dried aged Serrano, chorizo hollandaise and spinach powder.

Cullen Skink, a traditional scotch fish chowder featuring smoked haddock, roasted tomato with herbs will be celebrated with a Macallan 18 year toast. Only to be followed with a Highland park 18 year with Chef Nick’s take on a classic Welsh rarebit, with scotch and coke braised beef cheek simmering in a basil pesto.

The evening is not over yet… for dessert, Scottish pudding will be served with Highland 18 year crème anglaise and raisin puree.

The cost for the event is $65.00 per person. It includes a five-course pairing starting at 7:00pm. These pairing events fill up quickly so call Upper West Restaurant to reserve your spot for this exclusive event, (310) 586-1111. Upper West Restaurant is located at 3321 Pico Blvd., in Santa Monica. http://www.theupperwest.com/
