EARTHWISE SOCIETY’S 6TH ANNUAL HEIRLOOM TOMATO FEST

Join Chef Jean-Francis at Earthwise Society’s 6th Annual Heirloom Tomato Fest. Located at the Earthwise Garden on August 20th at 1:00p, Chef Jean-Francis will demonstrate how to make one of his favourite dishes from our Heirloom Tomato menu – the Tomato and Nectarine Salad with whole grilled Argentinian prawns, red onion, fresh basil, and sherry vinaigrette. Get there early to see all the chef’s in action.

Heirloom Tomato

At Provence, we choose to honour the tomato during the month of September by creating a prix fixe menu using as many varieties and preparation methods as we can to thrill your taste buds for only $56 with an optional wine pairing ($25) created by Wine Director Joshua Carlson in collaboration with Chef’s Jean-Francis Quaglia and Sheldon Maloff.

Carnaval del Sol

On July 9 at 4pm Chef Sheldon will be on stage at the Travel Plaza at Carnaval Del Sol as part of the Chef’s del Sol Cooking Show. He will be teaching you how to prepare Grilled Halibut with Smoked Heirloom Tomato Vinaigrette. Come early and check out some of the performers, artists and vendors.

Canada Day

If you’re out and about (or as the Americans think we say “oot and aboot”) on Canada Day why not join us for brunch or dinner and raise a glass to the diversity that makes us all Canadian.

Atlantic Lobster

Homarus Americanus, Atlantic Lobster, or Canadian Lobster – whatever you call it, you can’t deny that lobster is a delicacy that can’t be compared to anything else. The month of July is Lobster Fest at Provence, and we’ve got a great 3 course menu ($62) with optional wine or petit wine pairings ($26/$16) so that you can experience the joy that is lobster.

Kampachi

Kampachi, a type of Jack Fish has long been a staple of Japanese cuisine going by the name Hamachi. In recent years, it has become quite popular in both Australia and Europe, and now it’s making its way to Canada through the kitchen at Provence Marinaside. Chef de Cuisine Sheldon Maloff and Sous Chef Mohit Chauhan have created an exceptional menu featuring this fish with a clean rich and slightly nutty flavour.

BC Spot Prawns on High Alert

With the warming weather comes the new season of seafood – at Provence, that means the return of fresh BC spot prawns. As in previous years the BC spot prawn harvest is closely monitored and starts and ends suddenly. Be sure to pay attention to our newsletters (signup here) to make sure you don’t miss out on this mouthwatering menu.
