“Fall brings a bounty of fresh ingredients. I love cooking with freshly picked earthy mushrooms, rich game meats and colourful squash,” says Chef McCord. “We’re pleased to offer a new vegetarian menu at La Pentola that spotlights the seasonal abundance of fresh vegetables.”
Grilled cauliflower steak with roasted tomato puree, peppers, artichokes and black olive oil or tagliatelle zucchini carbonara with pecorino cheese, are two highlights of the new fully vegetarian menu. On the regular dinner menu, Chef McCord makes the most of harvest produce with richer dishes including agnolotti del plin duck confit stuffed pasta with marsala currants and brown butter sage sauce or pansotti, celeriac and ricotta stuffed pasta with eggplant in a walnut crema.
Weekend brunch is a favourite with Yaletown locals and hotel guests alike, featuring La Pentola’s unique Northern Italian pancakes Kaiserschmarm and Chef’s favourite, the breakfast risotto with smoked bacon, peas and a poached egg.
