Food Lovers Will Enjoy Taking Part In Savour Ottawa Winter Tables

By on February 17, 2016

In the last week, Mother Nature has shown us her temperament. Days of blistery cold -35°C weather leaves us thinking that our food selection is limited in regards to locally sourced products. But, nothing could be further from the truth. Ottawa has six amazing restaurants that will be using locally produced ingredients that haven’t suffered from winter’s wrath during Savour Ottawa Winter Tables.

For the next two weeks, between February 16 and February 29, 2016, Savour Ottawa is “putting the spotlight on local food from Savour Ottawa farmers and producers in local restaurants”.

The initiative celebrates the availability of local food in winter, as well as the talents of local chefs!

Savour Ottawa Coordinator, Trevor Haché, expressed his passion for the winter event by saying “Even in the dead of winter, there is all sorts of local food available, despite some people sometimes thinking that there is no local food available in the winter”.

The six local restaurants participating in Savour Ottawa Winter Tables are:

Participating restaurants in Savour Ottawa Winter Tables.

Haché explained that the local restaurants participating will showcase “the talented chefs using local vegetables, grains, meat and cheese to create tasty meals we should all try to find some time to enjoy”.

Restaurants have told us that the end of February can sometimes be a slow time for them, now that Winterlude is over, so we are working with them to encourage people to taste local now.

To participate, the restaurants had the choice to either create a table d’hôte/ fixed price menu featuring locally grown and raised food (i.e. bought from a Savour Ottawa farmer/producer) and/or organize a special meal, event, or tasting celebrating Savour Ottawa products.

Each restaurant’s menu for Savour Ottawa Winter Tables can been seen in detail by clicking on their menu provided below:

• Absinthe menu
The Albion Room menu
Fairmont Château Laurier menu
North & Navy menu
The Red Apron menu
The Table Restaurant menu

And The Food Tease wouldn’t be a tease without tempting you first. The Fairmont Château Laurier graciously provided us with their delectable menu items showcasing local vendors and products.

Starter

Roasted “Juniper Farm” Organic Beets: “Glengarry” Celtic Blue Reserve, Arugula, Candied Walnuts, “Heavenly Honey” and “Hall’s” Cider Vinaigrette.

Main

Roasted “Pork of Yore” Berkshire Pork loin: “Juniper Farm” Warm Potato Salad and Glazed Organic Carrots, Fennel Kraut and Natural Reduction.

Dessert

Warm “Hall’s” Apple Crisp: “Against The Grain” Purple Corn Crumble with Dulce de Leche Ice Cream.

During the summer, I had the pleasure of attending Savour’s Harvest Table 2015 and I was spoiled with the food that was presented before me. Delicious meals created by local chefs using products locally sourced by vendors were nothing short of amazing.

With that being said, I am pleased to announce that Savour Ottawa is offering a free e-cookbook of the delicious meals that were offered to the Harvest Table guests. Sourced not only with information on the local producers/vendors and the talented chefs that participated in the event, but completed with the recipes that allow you to replicate the same meals.

For more information pertaining to Savour Ottawa Winter Tables and/or to make reservations at one of the participating restaurants, please click here.

So regardless of what Mother Nature throws at us, make an effort to enjoy the local meals created by chefs who care about where their food is coming from and care about their vendors. It’s a win-win affair!

After a long day, a rich and tasty avocado, egg and bacon salad was the way to go!!🥑🥚🥓😍😋

And the pièce de résistance, triple-cream Brie with @artisinbakery baguette - the perfect match for such a meal. 

At this rate, indulgence should be my nickname 😉

Friday night, I had the privilege of attending the 2024 Canadian Culinary Championships - Mystery Wine Challenge - People's Choice Award🥇🥇@greatkitchenparty
.
Congratulations to all the chefs involved in this intense competition. The chefs needed to create a dish to pair with the mystery wine. Each chef was given a tricky budget of $550 for the 250 guests. I was witnessing creativity at its best!!😋
.
The winning dish🥇 (centered in the middle of the photo) was created by JP Dublado: Red Deer Resort and Casino, Red Deer AB
Dish: beet & soy cured albacore tuna - ponzu gel - tomato water - puffed wild rice - beet green oil
.
Amazing talent from all the chefs as they paired with the mystery wine (a 2021 Lailey Vineyard Zweigelt)🍷🍷

I am very proud to share my culinary "observer" perspective regarding @lecordonbleuottawa culinary workshops in the latest issue of @luxeottawamagazine 😊

Visiting my alma mater and watching the culinary workshop from a different lens reinforced the rationale as to why I pursued my culinary education…the pleasure of savouring the fruits of your labour. 😋

It is this journey that ignited my passion for cooking, helped hone my skills, and introduced me to a world of flavours and techniques that continue to inspire me to this day. And perhaps it will inspire you as well!👨‍🍳👩🏼‍🍳

Where's my rubber ducky 🐤😉?! 
.
A year ago this week, I was enjoying some bath time while in @discoverdominica 🏖🏝😍
.
Dominica's lush scenery is extraordinary, and I'm grateful to have been invited to visit their beautiful island😊😊
.
Visiting Wotten Waven Sulphur Springs was perfect to relax and rid of some unwanted stress. And the outdoor bath surrounded by all that green landscape was simply the BEST! An unforgettable experience! 🤩
.
Dominica's adventure activities - diving, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, swimming - are just some of the many ways to enjoy this tropical island.🤿🙂
.
Put Dominica on your travel list. You'll love it!!❤️❤️
