The good folks at Argyll, at 2700 East Third Avenue, know all about both gourmet food and alcohol, so you can bet that the six-course Scotch dinner that begins at 6:30 p.m. tonight will be well worth the $70 price tag. Master of Whisky Robert Sickler will walk guests through the menu and scotch pairings; here's a taste:
Roasted beet and baked pear salad with a sherry white-pepper vinaigrette, paired with Glenkinchie twelve-year (Lowlands); Blue Sky Farms fried oysters with horseradish, ginger, pickled apples and Talisker gastrique with Talisker ten-year (Isle of Skye); braised rabbit with papparadelle pasta, chanterelles, fennel, thyme and creme fraiche with Singleton twelve-year (Speyside); pan-seared duck with parsnip puree, house bacon and brussels sprouts with Oban fourteen-year (West Coast HIghlands); Lagavulin-brined and smoked lamb chop with garlic puree and glazed winter vegetables, with Lagavulin sixteen-year (Islay); and a butterscotch creme brulee with caramel corn and pine nuts, with Dalwhinnie fifteen-year (Highlands).
