Recently I was watching a TED talk about how the population adopts new ideas or more scientifically, the diffusion of innovations. Essentially we’re all grouped in to 5 categories, the innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority and laggards. It really made me think about how the world is starting to view food. No longer do we want to eat what’s processed and easily accessible. People are starting to question more and more about their food, where it’s come from and whether it’s been treated ethically. We as a population are becoming more aware of what we’re eating. This can only be a good thing, people need to be educated about their food and I’m glad that in this case, we’re more in the early adoption or early majority categories.
The next station featured the Scotch Quail Eggs paired with what they coined as the Johnny Winter Love Affair cocktail made with Johnny walker black, cinnamon syrup, bitters and sparkling wine. The eggs were coated in a crunchy exterior providing extra texture contrasting it with the soft boiled interior. I really enjoyed the cocktail which was reminiscent of sipping apple cider. It’d be perfect by a warm fireplace.
I’m looking forward to going back and trying other items off of their menu. Lucky for me, my friends have already booked us a table! There’s definitely nothing wrong with being an early adopter, especially if it means I get to taste delicious food before word gets out and people book up all the space!
