Video: A Journey Through Scotland

The first event at the new Magpie Downtown was a whiskey and small-plates tasting, featuring six regions of Scotland.  Thirty-five guests gathered at Magpie and received tasting portions of 6 Scotch Whiskeys.  Paired with complimentary-flavored-inspired ingredients that enhanced both the food bite and the whiskey.  Click on the images above to watch the video.

Video: CoffeE Cupping

This video is from the archives for sure. Shot back in 2014, the Magpie Coffee Cupping was a  feature in the Food section of The Advocate newspaper .  Back in 2014, Magpie was new on the scene and was just beginning to introduce Baton Rouge to "third wave" coffee.  

During a coffee cupping, participants evaluate coffee aroma and the flavor profile of a coffee, to understand the minor differences between coffee growing regions.  Of recent, Magpie has been discussing ideas of how to reintroduce coffee education into the Events schedule.  Stay tuned for updates on that subject.  In the meantime, click the images above and learn about a coffee cupping.
