Embers Takes Guests on Journey through Scotland on Examiner.com

Embers, acclaimed in Boca Park for ‘steaks, ribs, and spirits,’ is setting itself apart from surrounding upscale eateries with its ethnic nights out.  Every once in a while, this restaurant will take a break from the traditional menu and dedicate its kitchen to an international prix-fixe pairing dinner.  This cultural celebration is becoming more of a monthly habit, making an excellent outlet for the gourmet diner looking to change things up.

On its most recent world tour, Embers featured a ‘Journey through Scotland’ dinner, where guests feasted on a five-course meal with a different fine Scotch accompanying every step of the way.

A Blood and Sand cocktail started the night on a sweet note with Cherry Heering Liqueur and orange juice balancing Sweet Vermouth and the first taste of Scotch.  The food opened up with a spread of Scottish favorites: house-made haggis, a Scotch egg, and black pudding.  Rich, savory flavors you won’t be able to find too many places across town; just be sure to try them before looking up the ingredients [as if that won’t send everyone to Google in the next 10 seconds].
