6th Annual Tomato Fest

According to Chef JF, tomatoes are the ultimate summer fruit. Not only are they ripe, juicy and brimming with sunshine, heirloom tomatoes present a wide range of flavours to tempt the palate. With the abundance of heirloom tomatoes available locally each year, we are celebrating with our 6th Annual Tomato Fest. Burst into these juicy tomatoes with this month’s three-course feature menu of Heirloom Tomatoes prepared for you in a various ways with optional wine pairings.

Here are some recommendations from our menu’s selection.

Allow our Chef’s to ripen your palate with the Tomato and Nectarine Salad. The natural sweetness of the nectarines bring out of the flavours of the juicy tomatoes, while the perfectly seared scallops melt in your mouth. Settle in with our Sommelier Rachelle  who recommends the Synchromesh Rieslingas it is vibrant and fruit driven with a balanced dry finish.

Stay out fishing for the silky texture of the Grilled Lois Lake Steelhead and Prawn Duo accompanied with the bright yellow tomato and warm vegetable salad, smoked plum tomato and black garlic vinaigrette. As the sun sets, the salmon hue of Le Vieux Pin Rosé, will compliment your evening with it’s delicacy and structure.

Pair your fruit picked dessert such as the Berry and White Chocolate Clafoutis with the Late Harvest Cabernet/MerlotLate harvest wines are less sweet then some dessert wines perfect for fruit based desserts, leaving you feeling sun-kissed.
