Crisp, light and airy, and perfect for dessert or a snack, our cinnamon and sugar coated Spanish-inspired treats are difficult to resist – especially served hot and fresh, and dipped into our rich, creamy milk chocolate fondue.
Churros WITH MILK CHOCOLATE FONDUE
OYSTERS ON THE HALF-SHELL WITH LAMBRUSCO GRAPE MIGNONETTE
We’ve taken Mignonette – a classic combination of minced shallots, cracked black pepper, and vinegar that is exceptional spooned onto briny, sweet, freshly shucked oysters – and gave it a subtle Italian twist with our fruity, mild Lambrusco Grape Condiment replacing traditional vinegar.
Dark & Moist Chocolate Cake
Dense, moist, and intensely chocolaty, this divinely rich chocolate layer cake is an absolute showstopper. It’s brimming with both bittersweet cocoa powder and couverture dark chocolate, along with sweet cultured butter and brewed coffee.
Chicken and Andouille Sausage Gumbo
Somewhere between a soup and a stew, this hearty gumbo gets its thickness from brown rice instead of the usual flour-thickened broth. Pack leftovers in a thermos for a warming school lunch.
Picnic Southern Fried Chicken
Classic Southern fried chicken is given a smoky, fiery kick of Moroccan-inspired spices, including crushed red chilies, cumin, and garlic, in this 5-ingredient comfort food favourite. Crisp on the outside and juicy inside, serve piping hot, or refrigerate and enjoy later on a picnic with coleslaw.
Duck Confit with Frisée Salad and Mustard Vinaigrette
As an exquisite and sumptuous entrée, moist, crisp and juicy duck is accompanied by lightly bitter salad greens tossed with an herbed mustard-spiked vinaigrette. An authentically French-style dish, spice and salt-curing duck legs was classically used as a means of preservation.
Charred Beef and Vegetable Quinoa Salad
Quinoa is the it grain! Higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates than other grains, it is a nutritious addition to your diet. In this restaurant-worthy barbecued salad, it’s paired with grilled beef and veggies.
Minty Lamb-Stuffed Tomatoes
Lamb is delicious but sometime the leftovers can seem fatty or strongly-flavoured. Try this stuffed tomato to use up leftover cooked lamb-it’s full of Mediterranean flavours of feta, tomato and mint.
Moo Shu Pork Stirfry
As with all stir fries, it pays to be prepared: do all your slicing and dicing and line up your ingredients before you turn on the stove. If you like, serve in crepes instead of over rice or noodles.
Mile High Spinach Pie
This main course pie is a bit time-consuming but well worth the effort. The pie dough is quite easy to work with, a plus for newbie pie makers, but if you are in a hurry you can use a prepared pie crust.
