Modern steakhouse STK London introduces STK & Scotch, a unique pairing menu in collaboration with Glenfiddich single malt Scotch whisky

This autumn will see the launch of an exclusive new dinner and Scotch whisky pairing menu at STK London. Created by STK London’s Culinary Director Barry Vera and Glenfiddich’s UK Brand Ambassador Mark Thomson; STK & Scotch will explore the unique flavour profiles and pairings between the iconic single malt Scotch whisky, STK London’s renowned USDA steak and world-inspired food offering.
Each of the five-courses on the STK & Scotch menu will be served alongside either a cocktail or neat serving of Glenfiddich, using five different expressions of the single malt Scotch whisky, which will increase in age with each course – giving diners the opportunity to experience a wide variety of flavour combinations.

STK & Scotch Pairing Menu

Lobster with powdered extra white olive oil

Paired with a Glenfiddich12-year-old, with flavours of light vanilla and fresh pear, that harmonise well with seafood

Foie gras & beer caramel

A creative combination of foie gras with beer caramel, served alongside an Old Fashioned cocktail with Glenfiddich 15-year-old Solera – a dry, yet sweet cocktail with orange citrus
to pair perfectly with the richness of this dish

6 hour cooked USDA prime beef fillet with caramelised shallots and parsley puree

Matched with a Glenfiddich18-year-old with rich fruit, warm spices hints of citrus and sweet malt notes, ideal for complementing red meat

Hot chocolate fondant with chocolate & olive ice cream

Accompanied by Glenfiddich 21-year-old Gran Reserva rum finish with aromas of ripe banana, toffee and savoury spice – a perfect pairing for those with a sweet tooth!

Montgomery cheddar & Eccles cakes

Paired with the show stopping Glenfiddich 26-year-old Excellence. Taken from 100% American white oak casks, this Glenfiddich delivers waves of salted caramel and light oak along with herbaceous savoury and cocoa notes combining to create a delicate sweetness
that works brilliantly with aged cheddar

The STK & Scotch pairing menu is available from now until the end of December 2016 and will be offered as an add-on to the usual menu. For those looking for the ultimate experience, private groups of up to 28 people can hire STK London’s plush private dining room for an exclusive introduction to the menu by Barry Vera and a Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador (subject to availability).

Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador Mark Thomson’s Food and Whisky Pairing Cheat Sheet
Don’t wait until after dinner to open the whisky, there are plenty of opportunities to pull that cork way before the cheese course, so never let anyone tell you it’s wrong to pair whisky with a meal, as Mark comments: “I’d rather have a bottle of whisky at my table than anyone who said it wasn’t right to do so! It’s all about experimentation. Keep in mind that pairing whisky with food is like seasoning, it’s all about finding something that either complements or contrasts the food. It’s not rocket science, get in and have a go!”

STK & Scotch will be available as either a three course set menu priced from £85*or a five course set menu priced between £120-£165**, between Sunday and Thursday.
Alternatively, guests can opt to be introduced to the pairings by STK London and Glenfiddich brand ambassadors between Sunday-Wednesday, POA.
*The Solera Slipper will be available as an add-on for a special price of £10.
**The five course menu is available both with and without Glenfiddich’s 26-year-old Excellence whisky.
