Walter Scott's Fried Chicken & Fall Wines Celebration

  • Walter Scott Wines 6130 Bethel Heights Road NW Salem (map)

Clearly, we love fried chicken in the fall, so this year we thought we would mix things up and bring one of Portland's Rising Star Chefs out to show us a different take on this classic comfort food.

Chef Earl Ninsom is from Bangkok, Thailand, and after spending his life cooking alongside his family on both sides of the pacific, he moved with his family to Portland in 2009, and opened the widely acclaimed Paadee, filling the menu with Thai comfort food that reminded him of childhood, as well as the 24-seat tasting menu restaurant, Langbaan, becoming a semifinalist for James Beard’s “Best New Restaurant” in 2015.

In 2016, he opened fast-casual Hat Yai, named after a city in southern Thailand that inspires the restaurant’s fried chicken, curries, and roti earning a spot on James Beard’s semifinalist list for “Outstanding Restaurateur” for his work.

We are thrilled to have Hat Yai coming to Walter Scott for our Fall Release Party! Their incredible drinking snacks will be offered to compliment the wines as we celebrate the release of the first 2018 wines
