As much as I'm enjoying the lovely summers here in Ottawa, I cannot help but get excited for autumn as it is now my favorite season! Coming from Thailand, I'm not used to the change of season but since moving here, every season has its own unique highlights. And one highlight that I'm excited about this fall is Récolte: Local Harvest Dinner Pop Up and who wouldn't be with this setting:
I'm so lucky and excited to work with Dinner4Four who are known for bringing magic to the dining table by awakening your senses! Set outdoor by the Terrace on the Canal, there is no doubt that your sense of sight will be enjoying Ottawa's symbolical view like the Parliament Hill while enclosed in a heated Garden Dome. Dinner4Four as always have chosen the perfect time and venue allowing you to witness a picturesque autumn foliage. And since this is in autumn, temperature is expected to drop and so there is an indoor fireplace and warm blankets to wake up your sense of romance!
But the actual magic happens with the sense of taste and smell under the talented hands of Chef Rene Rodriguez, Top Chef Canada 2014 Winner, Beat Bobby Flay Winner, Navarra Restaurant, Orto Trattoria Restaurant).
Chef Rene and his experienced team are ready to serve a four-course meal with options of Fruits de mer Inspire (Seafood), Plat de Viandes (Meat) and Vegetalien Sain (Vegan)that is sure to tickle your taste buds. Using Ontario's freshest seasonal ingredients of Mariposa Farms & Fresh Start Foods, there is nothing to expect but the best medley of flavors. Additionally, this farm also guarantees that all their animals and vegetables are produced with chemical-free products and that they practice sustainable agriculture. No wonder the name Récolte fits this event perfectly it is the French word for harvest.
And as for any magical experience, a final touch is must! Capital Florist will create a dream like ambiance that will make this event truly memorable. As Carla, the owner, states 'At Capital Florist we are creators, dreamers, doers, believers in beauty, and life-long fans of flowers.'
I will be keeping you posted as we get closer but in the meantime, why don't we all enjoy summer and this video. And of course remember to purchase your tickets at http://www.dinner4four.ca/ottawa/recolte/ as seats are run out fast!
