Upper West Restaurant hosts "Scotch Around the Clock” on Thursday, November 14th. The Macallan and Highland Park Tasting will feature a five-course pairing menu 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.”

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.
