Featured Farmer - Mikuni Wild Harvest
Care to get a little cheeky this month? We thought so. Which
is why Q at the Empress is bringing you a choice of delicious dishes such as
Butter Poached Halibut Cheeks with charred lemon, spring pea purée and fresh
mint. Or, Pork Cheeks with carrot purée, morels, wild garlic, spring peas and
watercress nettle gnocchi.
All through April, Mikuni Wild Harvest is our feature supplier, bringing us a plethora of fresh ingredients that inspire Restaurant Chef Ken and his team to create dishes that shout springtime and complement these cheeky plates perfectly. Mikuni can be found right across the pond in North Vancouver and brings us such delights as mushrooms, nettles, fresh peas, sea asparagus spring onions, spring garlic and much, much more. Another suggestion? Try out the featured Sunchoke Soup with stinging nettle pesto and sea asparagus. (Have you noticed that these are all incredible Instagram-worthy plates? Tag us at #Qattheempress when you visit!)
Pair any of these with any of Q’s selections of award winning wines, creative cocktails, or a pick from the brand new martini menu. Cheers!
