There are very few things in life more pleasurable than the company of friends sharing good food and wine.
The last Sunday of every month La Pentola restaurant in Yaletown offers the Famiglia Supper Series. The 7 -10 course meal designed by chef Lucais Syme is a family-style feast that features a different region of Italy each time.
My dinner featured traditional dishes from the Trentino region of Italy. My pictures don’t give this delicious food justice. Needless to say I rolled myself home after this banquet.
Speck, mustard fruits (pear and zucchini), canederli
Carne salata, greens, parmesan
Trout, apple puree, roasted chestnuts
Fennel and blood orange salad, pine nuts
Spatzle, duck confit, duck jus
Salt cod, potato, cauliflower, caraway
Tortellini with brown butter and sage
Cotechino, lentils, squash, Brussels sprouts
Grilled venison, porcini, polenta, juniper butter
Tamarind ice cream, fennel and apple, caramel, speck
