This past Thursday I was lucky enough to score a media pass for Savour Food & Wine St. John’s. This fantastic event is put on by the Restaurant Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (RANL) and was at the beautiful Delta Hotel in downtown St. John’s.
I had a ball: chatted with the mayor, tried moose for the first time, tasted some wines, and most importantly, got to sample creative dishes from the best restos Newfoundland has to offer.
There are too many photos to cover them all in one blog post, so I’m giving up my top picks, and the rest you can find in the Facebook album here.
Here are descriptions of the photos:
Five Brothers Artisan Cheese: NL ash chevre/pepper cheddar/queso fresco/raspberry compote/crostini (photo above)
Quinn’s (Delta St. John’s): Local Lamb Burger, Chia Seed Cone with Five Brothers Mozzarella, Peach Habanera Chutney and Organic Farm Micro Cress
Raymonds: moose poutine with Montreal cheese curds and housemade sea salt (and adorable paper bags)
Aqua: Scallop/Pork Belly (what’s on my sheet is NOT what they served… there is also an apricot chutney on there and I think beet)
Atlantica Restaurant’s “Bacon & eggs” – Fresh pig cheek bacon/smoked egg foam/crisp sweet potato/quince jam/organic cress salad
Raymonds: housemade ice cream sandwiches
