Eats: Pubgrub

  • What is this Scotch egg? Is it the mysterious creation of some rare mountain bird, part British, part Appalachian, that produces such a delicacy? Surely, the egg is too perfectly soft-boiled and too judiciously coated in fried sausage and bread crumbs to be the product of human hands. Does it exist, this mythical Scotch-egg-laying bird, or is the magic of the Scotch egg a culinary sort, known only to the cooks at Jack of the Wood? Xpress readers know it’s part of the satisfying pub food meant to be washed down with a pint of heady Green Man brew. — E.P.
