i-on events: Drinks, dinner and Scottish street food
Yes really, there is such a thing. And you’ll have the chance to try it on Wednesday 24thOctober at i-on’s latest reader event. We’ve teamed up with Southside’s bar of the moment for a night of drinks, dinners and sharing platters that’ll make you glad you bought a ticket.
The event’s being held at St Andrews Brewing Co. Potterrow (that’s near Summerhall and the Udderbelly festival spot on Bristo Square in case you’re not sure), a new generation of bar serving the best Scottish beer, gin and whiskies and a menu that celebrates local produce.
On the night, for the very reasonable price of £20 per person, you’ll get canapes and a welcome gin aperitif made from St Andrews Gin Co, before sitting down to a sharing platter AND main course of your choice, washed down by a Brewco beer flight. And that’s where you have the chance to sample Scottish street food possibly for the first time in your life… Tweed Kettle . For people living in Edinburgh in the 1800s, Tweed Kettle would have been a staple, cheap and nutritious wild salmon dish made with foraged ingredients. St Andrews Brewing Co. Potterrow’s chef James Sherriff serves up a current and refined version using sustainable sea trout, lovage and sorrel, cream, chanterelles and peas and it’s knock-your-socks-off good, comfort food for a night in October. We know what we’ll be having.
