Enjoy a breathtaking view on high overlooking the shores of Lake Okanagan in Westbank’s Mission Hill Family Estate while sipping on wine in an upscale romantic restaurant. This is one of the wonderful escapes while touring the Okanagan wineries. After the tour through the Mission Hill Winery, it’s nice to kick back and relax while being spoiled with great food.
Farmhouse Butter & Vanilla Lobster Tail ‘sous vide’ 19: served with foie gras, maple cured steelhead caviar. How could I resist the precisely controlled temperature of cooking vacuum sealed lobster in airtight plastic bags bathed in a water. The perfected cooked Nephropidae is sweet while preserving its sashimi state.
Served alongside is the foie gras and mini toasted brioche. A smooth fatty foie gras to contrast the bouncy sweetness of the lobster.
And finished off with a savory lobster bisque soup in a shot glass. The saltiness of the concentrates cuts thru the fattiness of foie gras.
Estate Cured Bacon Wrapped Petite Bison Tenderloin 33: served with Okanagan cherry, forest mushroom tart. It is like a perfect canvas against the setting sun. The natural light captures the vivid colors of the dish embedding it against my iris. My brain salivates before I even had a bite. Bacon is slightly charred and crispy while the bison is cooked to perfection. Tender. Moist. Juicy. Tart cherries and earthy vegetables provides a bright flavor of freshness to this handsome dish.
Wine Fed Sezmu Beef Striploin & Braised Shortrib 31: served with polenta ‘frites’, sage & moja coffee jus. A smoky au jus and a tender striploin. A standard but perfectly seared piece.
Chocolate truffles melting in my mouth with fruit jellies salutes my day a fond farewell. Adieu!
