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, […]

Heirloom Tomato 2018 Extended

We’ve had a great heirloom tomato season this year, and it looks like we’re going to be able to continue serving our tomato menu well into September. If you haven’t joined us for tomato month yet, what are you waiting for? If you have come in and enjoyed this amazing fruit masquerading as a vegetable, […]

Heirloom Tomatoes 2018

We’re wrapping up our lobster menu for another year, but don’t worry, we always have fresh Atlantic Lobster on the menu. For the month of August, we’ll be serving everyone’s favourite imposter vegetable, the ever-versatile tomato. Most of us know that the tomato is a fruit, but it always seems to masquerade as a vegetable. […]

Atlantic Lobster 2018

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.
