The GOODS from St. Lawrence
Vancouver, BC | One of Canada’s most beloved restaurants adds a new spin to the sold-out dinner series that captivated guests earlier this year when St. Lawrence features an exclusive Table d’Hôte ‘Cabane à Sucre’ menu for dine-in and take-home service from January 15 to February 28, 2021.
Rooted in time-honoured tradition and close to the heart of Chef/Owner J-C Poirier, the Cabane à Sucre dinners allow the award-winning chef to pay homage to his Québécois heritage and an annual tradition in la belle province when families flock to old-growth maple forests to enjoy rustic, homespun habitant meals at the ‘Sugar Shacks’ (a.k.a. Cabanes à Sucre) where sap is boiled and turned into the nation’s prized syrup.
Originally presented as an exclusive series of dine-in-only culinary adventures at St. Lawrence this past January, the new menu allows guests to experience the complete Cabane à Sucre experience either in the restaurant for $69 per person plus tax or the comfort of their own homes for $49 per person plus tax. Reservations for the dine-in and take-home menus will be released online at stlawrencerestaurant.com today, Friday, November 27 at 4pm PST.
The reimagined series sees a delicious new array of dishes added to the menu, including: Profitérole de Mousse de Foie de Canard, Sucre d’Érable & Salade de Pommes; Crêpes aux Champignons et Jambon avec Sauce Mornay; Vol-au-Vent de Fruits de Mer & Sauce Diplomate; and Baba au Sortilège; in addition to others and optional add-ons.
