DINE & WINE
To mark Canadian National Day, which was celebrated on July 1, the Canadian embassy is organising events from Aug 6 to 15 to promote food and wine from the country. With its extensive Atlantic and Pacific coastlines, its diversity of landscapes and its multi-ethnic culinary culture, Canada offers an interesting cuisine, while many of its wines rival the best to be had from the New World. Its French-Canadian gourmet tradition is complemented by British-Canadian classics while the North American Indian heritage extends the list of enriching possibilities with wild game, vegetables and herbs. Meanwhile, prime surf, turf and farm produce inspire gourmet dining on the epic scale that Canada's vastness naturally inspires.
A selection fruit for which Canada is justly famous.
One of the highlights of the promotion promises to be a series of five Canadian-themed wine dinners, starting on Aug 6, at the Plaza Athenee's Reflexions restaurant whose chef, Daniel Bucher, has created a decadent, six-course, set-menu dinner offering the very best of Canadian food and wine. Each course will highlight the unique flavour combinations of British, French and North American Indian cuisine that characterise epicurean Canadian fare. Fresh Canadian produce will be coupled with a broad selection of Canadian seafood and agricultural products, ranging from oysters and snow crab to Arctic char and tender bison.
