It was a delicious month of May at Cheese Boutique at the 6th Annual Festival of Chefs. A big kudos to all the chefs, restaurants and wineries who participated. Also, a large thank you to all the festival goers. You came, you saw, you ate. We hope you had a yummy time, thank you for helping making this year such a success!
Smoked whitefish paté (from Purdy's Fishery) was served with pickled wild leek, pickled asparagus, sweet pea relish, mustard green, and reds bistro in-house made petite fort foccacia.... and a sprinkle of paprik.
Sunday, May 31: Jonathan Gushue, Langdon Hall
Langdon Hall closed out the 2009 Festival of Chefs with Gushue and his team creating a scrumptious smorgasbord gastronomic delights. There was such an array of food you could easily eat a full lunch, which many people did… and we do mean many. The sunny Sunday brought in quite the crowd, which left lines meandering around the various food stations. Though the words “long lines” often conjure up irritation, festival goers seemed perfectly content sipping their paired wine while waiting for more food and chatting with their neighbours. While they weren’t waiting in the tented demonstration area, people explored the epicurean emporium that is Cheese Boutique.
The chocolates were:
White Chocolate filled Rhubarb, honey with herbs
White Chocolate filled with Langdon Hall buttermilk with wild ginger
Milk chocolate with fleur de sel (sea salt) and black truffle paste
Dark chocolate filled Langdon Hall Blue Cheese with candied pecans
At the Presentation table: Anna Olson of the Food Network and husband Michael Olson
...see you next year for the 7th annual Festival of Chefs!
