Introducing the famous quartet, and the star of today’s jam session… Bonne Maman Peach jam, Cherry jam, Fig jam and Black Currant jelly.
I was invited for a media mixer at one of Ottawa’s top restaurants, Fauna, to experience a sweet menu prepared by Chef Billy Khoo who incorporated Bonne Maman jams in his dishes and gave us a fresh perspective on how to use jams in everyday cooking.
Last Friday, Michael and I had the pleasure of staying at Elements Luxury Tented Camp, near Renfrew. This all-inclusive outdoor hotel is located about 1 hour and 15 minutes outside Ottawa and has been running for over two years now. It’s been on my bucket list for a while, and this year I decided to bite the bullet and book it for my (early) birthday. We stayed one night, but I would recommend splurging for the entire weekend. There are so many activities like yoga and paddleboarding that we did not have a chance to indulge in. We did eat though, A LOT!
Canadian fare is more than just peameal bacon and poutine. Chefs from Delta & Marriott Hotels across the country, like Stefan Müeller, Eric Larcom, Robert Gendreau and Ottawa’s own Executive Chef Jason Duffy, are here to prove it!
Introducing, “A True Canadian Experience by Lift”. It is a one-of-a-kind culinary event happening this week (January 27-29 2016 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.) at Lift lounge, Delta’s newest eatery. This all-you-can-indulge event is an opportunity to celebrate the best of everything Canada has to offer; from arts and music to food and beverage.
The coast-to-coast menu will present focal eats from different regions across Canada– Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and the Maritimes. Think Alberta beef and East coast oysters, meet Ontario duck and Quebec maple, my mouth is salivating just thinking about this.
“Featuring local musicians and skilled artists like painters, sculptors, LIFT is stepping up as the new venue providing a platform for local artists to showcase their talents in Ottawa!”
So, to all of those who are looking for a date night or a way to spice up your winter, please join me for #ExperienceLift and indulge in a ‘True North Strong and Free’ evening. I’ll be there on Wednesday night, I hope to see you there!
