Scout works with a lot of local restaurants to get the word out about the cool and delicious things they’re doing, but they couldn’t do what they do without access to awesome ingredients. To get what they need, culinary creatives depend on personal networks of passionate artisans, farmers and producers who often work hard without ever seeing the glory they deserve. Since it’s always good to recognize those who have your back, we bring you the Supplier Shout Out!
For this edition we put a bit of a spin on our usual Supplier Shout Out to find out what’s growing on the rooftop of Nita Lake Lodge.
What rooftop ingredient would you like to highlight? Chive blossoms (grown seasonally on our rooftop garden).
Why are you excited to use this ingredient in particular? Chive blossoms are a flavorful, aromatic and colorful edible flower that grows in the spring and early summer. We love cooking with chive blossoms as they have a delicate flavor of onions and garlic and they can be used in all kinds of ways.
How are these ingredients currently featured on your menu? They are used when available/seasonal. Duo of BC Roasted Cod and Seared Scallops 39 (with asparagus, confit potato salad, lobster butter) will be available until September 15th.
