Last night was the ‘final’ cooking class from Osoyoos Home Hardware and Frances. It was a combination of three local companies: Walnut Beach Resort, http://www.walnutbeachresort.com/ Osoyoos Home Hardware http://www.homehardware.ca/en/dealer-microsites/5568-1/contact-information.htm and CC Jentsch Cellars. http://www.ccjentschcellars.com/ What a way to finish the season of fun.
Chef Justin and his Sous Chef Todd did amazing work for 40 people. They work so well together and keep it light and fun.
The menu was:
Himalayan Salt Grilled Prawns with Peach Cocktail Sauce
Double thick Prime Rib Steaks, bone-in, cooked on BBQ
Roasted Garlic and Herb Butter for basting
Pan roasted rosemary potatoes with grilled onions
Rum Flambe Cherries over Vanilla Pudding with a Cashew Crumble Topping
The wines that Philippe Daigle paired with these courses was :
Viognier 2012 with the Prawns
The Chase 2012 with the entree, and
a beautiful Gewurztaminer 2013 with the Cherry dish.
Everything was a perfect finish. The view from the patio and bbq kitchen is breathtaking. the staff at the hotel were impeccable with their service, smiles galore and oh so polite. The wines were carefully explained and with humor as well.
If, for no other reason than ‘I just want to go out for dinner’ comes into mind, be sure to add this treasure to your list of places to visit.
To one and all involved with the planning and execution of last night, a huge-big thank you. It was so very worth it.
