artisanale in guelph

August 6, 2009

I had an incredible meal in Guelph last weekend courtesy of Yasser Qahawish (previously from Law Society of Upper Canada). Most of the food at the table was shared.

We had “carpaccio” of Ontario artichoke and Yasser’s father’s heirloom zucchini with mint and lemon. Poached egg and artichoke chips (tempura) with Spanish bravas sauce. Grilled octopus and fava bean. Whitefish with swiss chard and cauliflower. Moules-frites. More frites. All accompanied by 2006 Roque Sestiere from Corbières.

Desert was raspberry tart, creme legere cake, and chocolate mousse (because they sold out of Yasser’s chocolate cake). Coffee and espresso.
