Tullibardine Whisky Dinner at Whet

Tullibardine Scotch Whisky

On November 15th, I dined at Whet Kitchen Bar for their Tullibardine Pairing Dinner as part of the Hopscotch festival. Executive Chef Peter Gray created a 4 course dinner that was paired with 4 of Tullibardine Scotch Whiskys. One of the representatives of Tullibardine guided everyone through each of the whisky’s while Chef Peter Gray explained each of the dishes that he paired for this dinner.

First Course:

a trio of canapés

Seared Scallop with bacon vinaigrette, Sesame Chicken Satay with scotch whisky butter sauce, Crab cake with chipotle aioli

Second Course:

Roast Beet & Poached Prawn Salad

Roast Beet & Poached Prawn Salad with goat cheese, cashews, apple mustard vinaigrette

Third Course:

 

Braised Beef Ribs

Braised Beef Ribs with roasted red jacket potatoes, wild mushrooms, broccolini and a chocolate demi glace

Fourth Course:

 

Dark Belgium Chocolate Pudding

My favourite dishes were the Braised Beef Ribs and the Dark Belgium Chocolate Pudding, both were delicious and rich and paired well with the Scotch pairings. Whet Kitchen Bar is located at 1517 Anderson Street on Granville Island in Vancouver.
