Q&A with Executive Chef Scott Croyle

What is your favorite part of hosting Jacksons’ pairing dinners?
As a chef, you don’t always get to interact with diners. My favorite part of the pairing dinners is being able to educate guests and engage with them outside of the kitchen. I love to prepare food table side and really give them an experience to remember.

What do you want guests take away from their experience?
My goal is to help people better understand their personal tastes. By really tuning in to the flavors of the food and the drink pairings, guests can learn more about what they like, and why they like it.

When is the next dinner?
Our next dinner will take place on March 10th at 6pm. It’s an Irish-inspired 5-course meal paired with whiskey cocktail by Liberty Pole Distillery.

What should we expect to see on the next pairing menu?
Our next menu includes Irish-inspired dishes paired with cocktails featuring local whiskey by Liberty Pole Spirits, which is mashed, distilled, and bottled in Washington, PA, home of the Whiskey Rebellion.
