Another Fantastic Gourmet evening at Steep Island!

Saturday April 24th

Our first guests of the season arrived on Saturday for another combination dinner by Michelle of Cheddar and Co and wine tasting from the Quadra Island South End Farm Vineyards at Steep Island Lodge. What a delectable evening!

Michelle’s 6 course menu offered a mouth watering array of appetizers to dessert. An “amuse bouche”  guyerer cube with orange mint vinaigrette started off the meal followed by an Organic Beet and Greens Salad. Quadra Island Swimming Scallops with a delicate fennel, star anise sauce, a Rosewater Graniteto cleanse the palette to be followed by the entree; Local Island Bison Pan Seared Rib-Eye accompanied by Yukon Gold Wild Mushroom Pave and Smoked Tomato Romesco. DELICIOUS!  The meal’s finishing touch…a beautiful Chocolate Silkdessert with strawberry peppercorn compote, rosemary Madeline’s, gorgonzola.

Each course was pared with a bubbly, red or white wine and dessert wine presented by Ben and Jill of SouthEnd Vineyards of Quadra Island.

How lucky we are to have such great talent and passion right here in our own backyard!
