The North Bridge Brasserie within the Scotsman Hotel offers an exquisite five course ‘Taste of Scotland’ menu.
I’m a huge fan of good food, and all things Scottish so when I heard that chef Paul Hart had combined the two in a fine dining multi – tasting experience, I had to try it… and sketch it.
We began with perfectly cooked, hand dived Orkney scallops. Followed by haggis neeps and tatties, then Loch Etive seatrout and Shetland mussels. We travelled the country, all from our North Bridge Edinburgh base.
The finale (just as Mrs Sketcher and I thought we could fit in not a morsel more) was perfectly chosen. The Granny Smith apple and savarin cheesecake was light as a feather, the accompanying sorbet so refreshing.
Head Chef Paul combines locally sourced ingredients at their freshest, and is constantly tweaking and adapting his menu to suit the seasons. In my sketch above I have tried to describe all five courses of a superb Scottish dining experience, but there is no substitute for tasting the real thing and for that I suggest booking a table at the link below.
