Mid-summer in the U.S. is not quite peak harvest time in Canada, but it’s still a good time to visit. The weather had been quite warm the past week. I was hoping that turned into access to some good local ingredients.
We started off with a glass of South African sparkling wine, which was very nice.
The snacks started coming soon after I was seated. They did me a great favor and prepared some of the sushi rice bites just for me (no one else got any since it was not on the menu officially). They did add a different twist with the caviar. They also served a hot roll.
The next small bite was a cup of sunchokes in a sunchoke consommé.
Next up was a Hudson Bay oyster with a little green chili.
This bite featured crispy cheddar with Worcestershire sauce and was pleasantly crispy outside.
I officially moved to a nice white Burgundy for wine at this point.
