There are times in one’s life when a certain action will remain in your heart forever. This afternoon was one of those actions.
Suzanne wanted to drive back and take some wonderful pictures of barns close to demise and we let her treat us to dessert at the Burrowing Owl Restaurant. http://www.bovwine.ca/the_restaurant.html Sounds fair, don’t you think?
Suzanne had Creme Brulee that was absolutely delicious. Don ordered a cheese sampler (4) that came with dried figs, homemade crackers and beautiful thinly sliced bread. There was also a chutney on the side. He almost drooled it was so good.
I had a chocolate hazelnut and marscapone semifreddo that was out of this world. It had a light touch of saskatoon berry sauce and a tuille on the side.
The presententation of the food was remarkable but the scenery of the vineyards and valley are truly breathtaking, It reminded us of being in the south of France. No wonder we moved here. Our server, Clover, knew her menu and was able to describe all that we wanted to know about the offerings on the dessert menu. Ten thumbs up!
It was the first t ime we have ever just relaxed, enjoyed and savoured the afternoon. Being in love with life in general is wonderful and the company I shared this afternoon made it even more so..
