3 cloves garlic, sliced

1/4C celery root, diced
1/4C fennel, diced
1/4C butternut squash, diced
1/2C baby potatoes, quartered

3tbsp butter
3tbsp ap flour
4C chicken stock

Fennel Tops
Black Pepper

1 baguette



Heat a pot over medium heat.  Add the butter and cook until melted.  Add the onions and garlic and cook until translucent.  Add the carrot, fennel and celery root and cook approximately 5 minutes.  Add the flour and cook until it has absorbed all of the butter, approximately 2 minutes.  Add the chicken stock in stages, ensuring that the stew remains smooth.  Add the chicken and potatoes and cook until tender, about 25 minutes.  For the last ten minutes of cooking, add the butternut squash.


To serve:

Season the stew with salt, black pepper, and chopped parsley, tarragon and fennel tops.  Serve with sliced baguette.


Sweet Corn Soup


8 pieces sweet corn, kernels removed, cobs reserved
5 onions, diced
4 leeks, white only, diced
2 heads garlic, peeled and sliced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 potato, peeled and chopped
6 strands saffron

Olive Oil
Lime Juice
Kosher Salt
Black Pepper
Maldon Sea Salt
Espelette Pepper



Combine the corn cobs, one diced onion, the celery, half of the garlic, and one diced leek in a pot and cover with water.  Simmer for 30 minutes and remove from the heat.  Let stand for one hour and strain.

In a separate pot, sweat the remaining onions, garlic, leeks, and carrot in a generous tablespoon of butter until very soft.  Add the corn kernels, potato, saffron, and a generous pinch of salt and cover in the corn stock.  Simmer until the potatoes are tender, remove from the heat and puree.  Pass the soup through a very fine sieve and season with salt, black pepper, lime juice and espelette pepper.


Roasted Parsnip & Goat’s Cheese Soup & Sweet & Sour Beets, Rosemary Crisps


2C onion, diced
¼ C garlic, sliced
3C parsnip, diced
Vegetable stock (or water), to cover
1 tbsp black peppercorns (in sachet)
2 sprigs rosemary (in sachet)
3 tbsp goat’s cheese, to finish
35% cream, to finish, if needed

5 sprigs rosemary
½ C picked parsley
Grapeseed oil, to cover

2 large yellow beets
100 ml honey
25 ml sherry vinegar
1 clove garic, minced
¼  vanilla pod
1 rosemary
50mL olive oil
2 tbsp coriander seeds
Salt and pepper

2 Sprigs rosemary, picked



For the soup:

Over medium heat, sweat the onions and garlic until very soft and translucent.  Increase the heat to high and add the parsnips.  Roast the parsnips until lightly coloured, stirring the pot about once every 30 seconds as not to burn the onions and garlic.  Reduce the heat to medium and cook the parsnips until they start to break down.  Cover the vegetables with vegetable stock, add the sachet of black peppercorns and rosemary and simmer until the parsnips are quite soft.  Remove from the heat, puree in a blender and pass through a very fine sieve.  Season to taste with salt.


For the rosemary oil:

Place the rosemary in a small pot and cover with grapeseed oil.  Cook over medium heat until the rosemary is cooked, about 5-7 minutes.  Remove from the heat and puree in a blender.  While the oil is in the blender add the parsley and ensure to puree it very thoroughly.  Strain first through a sieve, then through a coffee filter and chill over ice.


For the sweet & sour beets:

Cook the beets in simmering, salted water until tender.  Remove from the water and peel while they are still hot.  Cut the beets into the size and shape of your preference.  Reserve.

Place the honey in a heavy bottomed pot and lightly caramelize.  Add the vinegar, garlic, vanilla, coriander seeds and rosemary and season with salt and pepper.  Allow to cool and then add the olive oil.  Pour the chilled liquid over the beets and let stand 12 hours before use.


For the fried rosemary:

Bring a pot of oil to 375F.  Add the rosemary and cook until crisp, about 15 seconds.  Remove from the oil and place on paper towel.  Season with salt.


To serve:

Drain the beets from the marinade and place a few in the bottom of a soup bowl.  Garnish with the fried rosemary.  Bring the soup to a simmer and adjust with salt, white pepper, and a bit of heavy cream if needed.  Whisk in the goat’s cheese until smooth.  Pour the soup over the beets and finish with a few drops of rosemary oil.

Serves 8 as an appetizer or 4 as a meal




2018 Riesling – Limestone Vineyard South Riesling – Natalie MacLean

By | Reviews | No Comments

Natalie’s Score: 92/100

Gorgeous as always, this off-dry, medium-bodied Niagara Riesling is so refreshing with lime zest, honeyed stone-fruit, flinty and wet stone mineral flavours on the palate. Great acidity for food. Pair with schnitzels, smoked fish and brunch fare.

Riesling food pairings: scallop ceviche, white fish with mango salsa, salt and pepper shrimp skewers.
