When you think of French cuisine, what do you think of? I just think of escargot since I’ve never really had true French cuisine. I knew I missed something when I went to Paris. Too many crepes and visits to cafes. Clearly I did something wrong. I wasn’t too into food back then when I was younger.
Good thing in Vancouver you can find anything to eat.
Now until October 18th, you can indulge on a 5 course French Tasting Menu at Mosaic for $55, which includes:
- Fois Gras Parfait
- Lobster Thermidor
- Duck L’Orange
You don’t need to be in France to enjoy French cuisine. Head over to Mosaic to try Chef Thomas Heinrich’s take on French cuisine.
Complimentary biscuits are cute and has a delicious smokey flavour.
Fois Gras Parfait is made with rougie quebec fois gras. There is also apple, calvados and marcona almonds on the mirrored plate. There was a nice contrast of flavours on the plate and the fois gras mousse tasted like butter.
Escargot is made with burgundy snails, garnished with shallots, roasted garlic and parsley. There is also pumpernickel crumbs on the side. The smell of this dish was fragrant from the shallots and garlic. Yum. It was really good. If you’ve never had snails before, it’s not scary. It kinda chewy.
Lobster Thermidor is made of Atlantic lobster tail, lobster roe pomme puree and garnished with kale nori. That lobster was so tender that it oozed buttery goodness. You’ll love this dish.
Duck L’Orange is made of duck breast from Thiessen Farms and garnished with orange fruit leather, terragon and celery root. Another great dish too. Succulent meat.
Mille-Feuille is like a Napoleon. Layers of puff pastry, lemon cream, and vanilla salted caramel. There was a mini pear on the side too. I felt like an awesome giant eating this cute dessert.
You definitely get a taste of everything, but if you are a very hungry man, you will probably have room for an extra dish.
