Taste of Yaletown 2018

Taste Of Yaletown has come a long way from its humble beginnings 14 years ago when it was a secret whispered about around the neighbourhood. With close to 30 restaurants participating last year (and likely more this year), TOY has become an event looked forward to by diners from all over the Lower Mainland. This […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018

The leaves are changing, the air is cooling, the kids are returning to school, the tourists have (mostly) gone home, and the Chef’s Top Ten is back at Provence – it must be fall! We like featuring our Top Ten dishes each fall; it’s our way of saying thank you to the locals for their […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week One: Lois Lake Steelhead

Week 1 of the Chef’s Top Ten features Sous Chef Mohit’s Seared Tarragon Chicken Thigh followed by one of Chef Jean Francis’ favourites, Seared Lois Lake Steelhead. This is Mohit’s third time contributing to the Top Ten, and in my opinion, his dish is one of the standouts this year. Don’t delay, make your reservation today […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Two: Piparras Pepper Dusted Seared Local Albacore Tuna

Until recently, I had no idea what the word tartine meant… I vaguely knew that it was food, but that’s about it. When you search Wikipedia for tartine, you get an article about a really great sounding bakery in San Francisco’s Mission district. (It sounds like a lovely place, you should check it out if […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Three: Seafood Linguini

Week three of the Chef’s Top Ten brings a dish from the earliest days of the now-defunct Provence Mediterranean Grill. The Seafood Linguini – sautéed clams, mussels, grilled fish, prawns, roasted garlic, and tomato sauce. Despite the apparent simplicity of pasta with tomato sauce and fish, it really does satisfy an itch that can sometimes be hard to […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Four: Grilled Line Caught BC Halibut

You know it’s fall when the pumpkin and cranberries come out. In our 4thweek, Chef de Cuisine Sheldon has created an appetizer that might as well be Pumpkin Pie that you can have before dinner. I introduce to you Pumpkin, Brie and Cranberry en Croûte with white balsamic reduction. Once you’ve finished your ‘appetizer’ you can […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Five: Sautéed Wild Prawns Provençal

I find the whole naming of pasta shapes confusing; for instance, do you know what shape Pansotti is? I know that for each shape, there is history, and a story, but sometimes I just want to order dinner. Lucky for me (and you) Chef de Cuisine Sheldon, did his research while he was creating the […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Six: Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Prawns

By the end of October, you might be feeling the winter blues, well we have the cure for that – House Cured Bacon and Lentil Soup with spiced yogurt and a lentil crisp. Top Ten rookie, Chef de Partie Yohannes is really making a splash with this one, watch for more from him in the future. […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Seven: Bouillabaisse

For the 7th week in our Top Ten, Chef de Partie Yohannes has given us a great Baby Beet Salad with herb whipped goat cheese, sorel, and orange vinaigrette. A trio of classic flavours, but like the power rangers, their combined power is greater than their individual parts. After the sweet, earthy flavours of beets and goat […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Eight: Oven Roasted Rack Of Lamb

Making his debut appearance in the Chef’s Top Ten, Jonathon has created an amazing dish that compliments the fall weather perfectly – Confit Brussels Sprouts and Mascarpone Tarte with beet root salad and pesto vinaigrette. I know brussels sprouts sometimes get a bad rap, but you really can’t go wrong when you add mascarpone. Follow the […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Nine: AAA Canadian Beef Filet

New to the scene at Provence, Chef de Partie Anthony is making waves in the kitchen. You know what else makes waves? Ducks… ducks make waves, you know, when they swim. Anthony though makes a Nutmeg Seared Duck Breast with butternut squash purée, roasted acorn squash, and apple vinaigrette. This is our week 9 appetizer, which […]

Chef’s Top Ten 2018 – Week Ten: Fennel Infused Baked Whole Mediterranean Fish

When I think of winter vegetables, kale is often one of the first things to come to mind for me. And one of my favourite things to match with kale is mushrooms. So now we have kale and mushrooms, can anybody guess what the next ingredient is going to be? It has to be bacon, […]
