World Whisky Day 2022: Drei Foodpairings mit Big Peat Whisky – und Kartoffeln!

Ein etwas anderes Foodpairing - mit Rezepten von Stevie McLaughlin, Head Chef im Restaurant Andrew Fairlie

In UK ist Albert Bartlett der größte private Anbieter frischer Kartoffeln – die Verfügbarkeit seiner Produkte in Deutschland ist uns nicht bekannt. Anders ist es bei Big Peat, dem Islay Blended Malt von Douglas Laing – Big Peat ist jenseits und diesseits des Ärmelkanals ein Begriff.

Die beiden Unternehmen haben sich für den World Whisky Day am 21. Mai 2022 zusammengetan und ein mash-up von Kartoffel und Whisky ersonnen, das uns nahezu dazu zwingt, es mit Ihnen zu teilen, so lecker sieht es aus. Es handelt sich dabei um drei Kartoffelgerichte, die mit Whisky verfeinert werden.

Wir haben für Sie die Info und vor allem die Rezepte zu den Gerichten, die wir hier einfach mal nicht übersetzen, weil sie in Englisch schon so lecker klingen. Ersonnen wurden sie von Stevie McLaughlin, Head Chef des Restaurants Andrew Fairlie und dazu Albert Bartlett ambassador chef:

  • Rooster Potatoes Duchess-style Infused with Whisky Cream, topped with Stornoway Black Pudding 
  • Lamb Neck, Apache Potato, Pearl Barley and Whisky Stew
  • Maple and Whisky-glazed Butter Gold Potatoes with Smoked Bacon and Ginger

Vielen Dank an Albert Bartlett für die Rezepte, Ihnen viel Freude beim Nachkochen – und gutes Gelingen fürs Menü zum World Whisky Day 2022!

THE PERFECT MASH! ALBERT BARTLETT TEAMS UP WITH BIG PEAT TO CELEBRATE WORLD WHISKY DAY

Potatoes and spirits join forces to create three unique recipes to mark the annual day

Potato brand Albert Bartlett has teamed up with Douglas Laing’s Islay Whisky brand, Big Peat, to create three exclusive recipes to mark World Whisky Day, celebrated each year on the third Saturday in May. This year the much-loved event will be enjoyed on May 21. 

The UK’s leading fresh potato brand was eager to join forces with a likeminded and passionate family-owned brand and Big Peat appeared to be the perfect partner. Albert Bartlett’s ambassador chef Stevie McLaughlin, Head Chef at Scotland’s only two Michelin Star establishment Restaurant Andrew Fairlie, has created the delicious potato-based dishes using Big Peat’s multi award-winning Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky.

The recipes:

  • Rooster Potatoes Duchess-style Infused with Whisky Cream, topped with Stornoway Black Pudding 
  • Lamb Neck, Apache Potato, Pearl Barley and Whisky Stew
  • Maple and Whisky-glazed Butter Gold Potatoes with Smoked Bacon and Ginger

Albert Bartlett was keen to explore the unusual combination of potatoes and whisky following its partnership with Brewgooder last year, which took potatoes and beer to another level.

Michael Jarvis, Head of Marketing at Albert Bartlett, added:

“We wanted to partner with Big Peat to create some delicious recipes to mark World Whisky Day. Our ambassador chef Stevie has always been fantastic at showcasing the amazing things you can do with potatoes. As a brand we are always keen to explore unknown territory and thought whisky and potatoes could be an exciting new venture. Last year, we did beer which was an amazing success – whisky now it’s your turn!”

Scottish brand Big Peat, part of Douglas Laing’s Remarkable Regional Malts portfolio, is a marriage of Single Cask Single Malts distilled only on Islay and represents ‘Islay in a bottle’. Celebrated for “his” trademark smoky, sooty, ashy and sweet flavour profile, Big Peat is proudly offered at high alcohol strength and always without colouring or chill-filtration.

Rebecca Fennell, Big Peat Brand Manager, added:

“It’s been great fun partnering with Albert Bartlett for World Whisky Day. The fusion of our popular small batch Islay Malt – known for its ashy but sweet flavour profile – and Albert Bartlett potatoes, creates an unbeatable dining experience. Big Peat has amassed a somewhat cult following throughout his tenure in the world of whisky and when Albert Bartlett approached us to join forces to create something unique, we thought why not. We’ve never tried merging our whisky with potatoes so we’re excited to give it a go!” 

Ambassador chef Stevie McLaughlin has created step-by-step instructions that people can easily follow at home. Whether it’s a special meal, a side dish or main course, the dishes can be whipped up for any occasion.

Stevie McLaughlin, Head Chef at Restaurant Andrew Fairlie and Albert Bartlett Ambassador Chef said:

I was really inspired when Albert Bartlett asked me to create these dishes for World Whisky Day. The wonderful thing about potatoes is that you really can do anything and combining with whisky is just another example of that. I wanted to create three dishes that were so different but equally delicious and I feel we have achieved that. Working with Big Peat whisky to create these recipes has been a welcome challenge and I can’t wait for everyone to try them.”

Big Peat tasting notes:

Nose: Opens fresh, salty and clean – developing to sweet malt dried over peat
Palate: Ashes, sweet tar, beaches and smoking chimneys
Finish: Long and lingering finish that replicates the palate with salty, tangy liquorice, smoke, bonfire ashes and a phenolic quality

Note: World Whisky Day is an annual calendar day celebrated each year on the third Saturday in May.

Lamb Neck, Apache Potato, Pearl Barley and Whisky Stew

Serves 4 people. Can be doubled for 8, halved for 2.

Ingredients:

  • 3 trimmed lamb neck fillets cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 lamb stock cubes
  • 125g pearl barley soaked in cold water overnight and drained
  • 8 small Albert Bartlett Apache potatoes cut in half
  • 8 turnips, peeled and trimmed
  • 12 Chantenay carrots, peeled and trimmed
  • 8 Button onions, peeled and trimmed
  • 125ml Big Peat Whisky 
  • A handful of chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper

Method:

  1. Put the bite size lamb pieces into a suitable sized heavy bottomed pot. Cover the lamb with cold water and bring quickly to a boil – carefully drain the blanched lamb and discard the water. With a clean cloth, wipe the pan clean.
  2. Add the blanched lamb back into the pot along with the stock cubes, soaked barley, 62.5ml (half) of the whisky and enough cold water to cover the lamb by 4cm approximately.
  3. Simmer the lamb gently for 50-55 minutes and skim off any froth or fat that may rise to the surface.
  4. Add the prepared vegetables to the lamb pot and then simmer for a further 25-30 minutes.
  5. This dish is best enjoyed the day after it is made. Allow the stew to cool a little then keep in the fridge overnight.
  6. The next day remove the pot from the fridge 1 hour before serving and on a low heat allow the stew to come to a gentle simmer. Add the remaining whisky and a good handful of freshly chopped parsley. Correct the seasoning and serve in the pot for family and friends to enjoy together.

TOP SERVING TIP: At home I like to serve this hearty boozy stew at about 1am as fuel to keep the Hogmanay party… or any party going!

Maple and Whisky-glazed Butter Gold Potatoes with Smoked Bacon and Ginger

Serves 8-10 adults sharing. For 4 adults, half the ingredients and for 2 adults quarter the below.

Ingredients:

  • 1.2 kg Albert Bartlett Butter Gold potatoes
  • Light olive oil
  • Thinly sliced smoked streaky bacon
  • 120ml Maple syrup
  • 80ml Big Peat Whisky
  • A thumb of ginger coarsely grated
  • Chopped parsley
  • Sliced spring onions
  • Dried chilli flakes
  • Flaky sea salt

Method:

  1. Cut the potatoes in half and simmer in lightly salted water until three quarters cooked. Drain them carefully into a colander and allow to cool until hand manageable.
  2. Cut each rasher of bacon in half – 1 half rasher per each half potato. Wrap each potato in the bacon and hold the bacon in place securely with a cocktail stick.
  3. Brush the potatoes/bacon very lightly with the olive oil and place them carefully on the grill or a pre-heated BBQ.
  4. Allow the bacon to crispen and the potato edges to char lightly.
  5. Meanwhile combine the maple syrup, whisky, ginger and chilli flakes together.
  6. Just before the potatoes are ready to come off the BBQ or out of the grill, dip your brush in the sticky whisky marinade and dab each potato with the marinade. Allow the potatoes to cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
  7. Remove the glazed potatoes and place onto a serving plate, drizzle with some of the marinade then sprinkle with parsley, spring onions and a few flakes of sea salt.
