AWESOME THING WE ATE #991 | Escaping The Rain For The Perfect Dish At Hawksworth

October 27, 2016.

fullsizerender-63

by Michelle Sproule | I recently got my first taste of chef de cuisine Chris Stewart’s cooking at Hawksworth, and it was wonderful. Stewart, originally from New Brunswick, was elevated to the position last month following a five year run as the executive chef at Mission Hill in the Okanagan. I was in from the rain for a lunch that began with a rich intro of brown buttered/roasted winter squash with burrata cheese dressed with white balsamic, and continued with a crazy pretty hamachi ceviche delicately lit with sea buckthorn, passion fruit and cumin on crispy rice. It ended with a dish that warmed as the day demanded — we’re talking perfectly pan-roasted scallops and plump, pumpkin-stuffed agnolotti flavoured with sage and garnished with crumbled hazelnuts and thin shavings – whispers, really – of pine mushroom. It’s an impressionist’s taste of where we live right now. Pair it with a wander through the Vancouver Art Gallery’s new exhibitions across the street. Walker Evans: Depth of Field and Stare both open this Saturday, October 29th.
