Here is a sneak peak at two of the finished hors d’oeuvres that were served to the Royal Couple, Kate and William, and 120 attendees at the Celebration of Youth Reception held at Rideau Hall on June 30th, 2011.
I will have an in depth blog posting in the next day or so with more pictures of other incredible dishes, but I wanted to show off what was done with the two Alberta products (yak-cross meat, and Sylvan Star Gouda) we were asked to supply for part of the menu.
May I present:
Potato Crusted Alberta Yak Tartare with Outaouais Sunny Side Up Quail Egg,
(the tartare was piped into the shoestring potato squares first, see picture below)
…and the other dish featuring Alberta product:
Victoria Island Musk Ox Prosciutto with Alberta Sylvan Star Crackling on a Jellied Herb Dice
Huge thanks to the Friesens of Springridge Ranch
and Todd and Stu at Horizon Meats
in Calgary for working with us on getting the yak to Ottawa, and to John and the crew at Sylvan Star Cheese
for making an incredible product we were proud to show off. The musk ox prosciutto, by the way, is the tasty Mipkuzola that we have featured at our past Northern Food Nights and comes from Hills Foods
Check back for more Royal dishes in the next few days.
