Reviews

Seared Salmon – $5.75

The salmon is served with Crown Maple whisky glaze, parsnip silk, apple chutney and hazelnut croquant. The flavors mixed well and the apple chutney was a standout. Sadly, there just wasn’t enough of the chutney to combine with all bites.

Traditional French Canadian Tourtiere – $5.25

This dish had some flavor, but there was nothing of note that created an impact. Overall, this bland item can be skipped.

Maple Bûche de Noël (Vegetarian) – $4.50

With maple mousse rolled in gingerbread chiffon cake with cranberry sauce and pecan crumble, this isn’t only the best yule log we tried, but one of the best things we had at the whole Festival. Get it!

Gold Chocolate Chip Cookie (Vegetarian) – $2.00

This is another treat on the cookie trail. Like many of the others, it’s a rather standard cookie. It’s nothing special, and there’s no real need to try it if you’re not doing the full trail.

Unibroue Ephemere Strawberry & Rhubarb – $4.50

Unique and tangy, this is a beer well worth your time if you like either strawberry or rhubarb. It had a very organic taste.
