Highland Park whisky, “the Orkney single malt with Viking soul,” has been distilled in Scotland since 1798 inspired by “an epic Viking whisky adventure 1,000 years in the making.”
Chef Lin, 39 years old, grew up in Taiwan and trained in Japan. At The Sea, he has become known for his fine dining seafood-focused menu prepared with premium quality ingredients and techniques that distinguished his previous work at the Michelin two-star restaurant Providence located in Los Angeles. In 2008, together with Chef Michael Cimarusti, Lin defeated the most famous Iron Chef, Masaharu Morimoto, in “Battle Black Fish” on the Food Network’s Iron Chef America program.
