We’re really pleased with how Scran Salon has developed during the period of 2014. One of several benefits has-been that we’ve already been more plugged in the Edinburgh restaurant scene matrix and have had the enjoyment of hearing about some actually exciting and revolutionary tips.
Our regular saloneers is Amy Shepherd from Angels with Bagpipes. And the woman colleague Kirsty, she spoke at our August occasion, then happens to be at each event since, including another share into the December celebration (along side some very delicious canapes through the restaurant).
The woman generosity offered to offering united states the opportunity to arrive towards third concealed Wing occasion, a pop-up dining expertise in the heart associated with brand new Town. I was joined on this festive pursuit by Eleanor, a veteran of trips on Magnum and Los Argentinos.
Amy greeted united states on arrival with a magical snowscape in background courtyard. We were shortly shown towards just what appeared to be a fairly unassuming door. The wizardry behind it completely belied this humble appearance.We were welcomed with a cranberry, cointreau and prosecco beverage, then left to take into account the selection for evening. Christmas crackling crackers began the cooking fireworks with moreish crunch.
Our very first dish had been a bonnie looking bunny loin covered with black colored pudding and pancetta on a sleep of creamed leeks and tomato. It was a wonderfully light and fresh opener, well-matched with an excellent viognier.
The fish course of steamed mussels in bisque with a parmesan sharp had been beautifully coordinated with a superb riesling, that has been the standout wine for the night. Once again, this was deft and stylish cooking.The key training course introduced together duck breast, duck knee in a wonton, foie gras, dehydrated fig and dried beans. It was a luxurious and very accomplished meal that was richly satisfying. The matching Lebanese red brought interesting complexity.
Dessert featured great theatrics, with flaming rum topping chocolate rum and raisin sorbet, a neat little sponge, and nutty detailing. It had been outrageously boozy and very unforgettable.
Rounding things down had been a deliciously festive beverage, infusing mincemeat with calvados, marischino and ointment. The new nutmeg topping ended up being beautifully judged marking it as a yuletide classic.So total, the concealed Wing had been an extremely impressive dining experience. It took the top-notch create available at Angels with Bagpipes to a new amount of quality, in an imaginative little place. I’d strongly recommend checking out future activities. We enjoy checking out once again in 2015.
