The acclaimed Wild Game Co.’s monthly pop-up dining event Struie Road will be back with a bang on Friday 24th July. In collaboration with Workshop Coffee, there will be an accomplished and seasonal eight-course menu entirely sourced from their native region of the Highlands. The evenings are set to be a gastronomic delight not to be missed. Dishes on this unique menu will feature Scottish traditional seasonal fair with a modern twist. Diners can enjoy haggis with horseradish and potatoes skins, earl grey salmon gravlax and red braised spring pigeon among other delicacies. A creative cocktail menu will also be on offer, featuring several foraged cocktails with locally picked ingredients including nettles and berries. As the night heads to close, guests will be treated to a gorgeous goodie bag featuring, Balblair whisky, Caorunn highland gin, workshop coffee and some home-made Scottish tablet.
The Wild Game Co. was founded by Andy Waugh in August 2010, and his unique concept is all about the wild game and venison directly sourced from his family home in the Highlands. The meat is also butchered with care by his father’s game-butchering business just north of Inverness, which has been in existence for over 30 years.
The Wild Game Co., which is set to open their first permanent restaurant Mac & Wild this September in London, is one of the Evening Standard’s Top 5 Places to Eat Game in London, the winner of the Young British Foodies Street Food Award 2012-2013, the winner of Burger Fest 2015 and the winner of the siganture burger awards at the 2015 National Burger Awards.
The pop-up is appropriately named after Struie Road, one of the most remote places in Britain, and home to some of the best produce available. The Struie is the road that runs south from Andy’s own small village in Scotland, Ardgay, just North of Inverness. All of the meat, fish, cheese and whisky featured in the Struie Road menu will be sourced from the producers in this area.
Workshop Coffee Co. share Andy’s commitment to serving only the finest quality produce, personally sourcing and then roasting their own coffee on their premises in London. Diners at the pop up will enjoy the stylish but relaxed setting, with reclaimed wood, interior vertical garden, exposed brickwork and filament bulbs just some of the design features.
Andy says of the project:
“We’re delighted to be bringing the North of Scotland to Central London with the launch of the Struie Road concept. Our meat is not just wild or from ‘somewhere’ up North, we can tell you exactly who shot it and where from The Highlands, and we look forward to sharing it with you soon!”
