Araxi Long Tabular Array Dinner July 2012

One of the highlights of my recent trip to Whistler was the Araxi Long Table Dinner. For a resort town, Whistler has around real impressive restaurants as well as Araxi is ane of them. Whether y'all desire modern cuisine, something playful, a spectacular persuasion or are dining inwards vogue y'all tin notice it all inwards Whistler. Although, to locomote honest, things don't larn terribly formal inwards Whistler as well as that is sure as shooting exercise of it's appeal. Araxi is on the high terminate of the spectrum as well as has received all kinds of accolades inwards the press. 
The location for the dinner was Rainbow Park inwards Whistler Valley. With a nurture similar that y'all simply know it's going to locomote driblet dead gorgeous, right? And it was. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 meandering path led to an opened upward infinite amongst views of Whistler as well as Blackcombe mountains assault Alta Lake.

The Long Table Dinners are a flake similar to Outstanding inwards the Field. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 multi course of pedagogy dinner is held outdoors inwards a picturesque location showcasing local ingredients as well as a per centum of ticket sales become to The Chef’s Table Society of BC, supporting regional chefs, producers as well as the local nutrient industry. Logistically I tin exclusively imagine it must locomote a nightmare but Araxi actually pulled it off wonderfully.

The crowd was a fashionable bunch, hip I'd say. I convey no thought how many folks were from out of town, but several I spoke to were locals or from Vancouver.

Tofino Dungeness Crab inwards North Arm Farm Squash Blossoms amongst Root Down Farm organic greens basil as well as cherry Lycopersicon esculentum vinaigrette was the outset course of pedagogy as well as it was then skillful y'all I think many would convey been happy having it every bit a head dish. How they managed to kid these enormous blossoms as well as serve them spell withal hot inwards the neat outdoors I volition never know. But I tin tell y'all they were low-cal as well as greaseless as well as had a unique panko crust. The low-cal greens, basil as well as Lycopersicon esculentum vinaigrette added notes of freshness to the dish.

I don't think y'all tin convey a signature British Columbia dinner without serving salmon. It's such a delicacy as well as then abundant this fourth dimension of year. The instant course of pedagogy was Hot Smoked BC Sockeye Salmon amongst Root Down Organic Ruby Streak (a dark-green herb)  amongst Lemon Verbena Dressing local babe golden beets as well as shaved radish. This was simply a stunning dish. Perhaps my favorite, because the salmon was smoky as well as yet retained that lovely custardy creamy texture. Overcooked salmon is a pet peeve of mine. The colors remind me of around swank wedding--all pink, as well as xanthous as well as ruby as well as well, salmon amongst touches of dark-green hither as well as there.

Whistler sits adjacent to Pemberton a real agriculturally rich area. There are scenic farms, ranches as well as fifty-fifty a distillery using local potatoes, all good worth a see past times the way. So it should locomote no surprise that beef from Pemberton was the adjacent course. Pemberton Meadows Natural Beef, Rosemary roasted loin as well as agnolotti of beef cheeks as well as brusk rib amongst Pemberton babe carrots as well as ruby vino jus. My partner inwards British Columbia eating adventures, nutrient blogger Mijune of Follow Me Foodie and I loved this dish, but agreed, every bit fabulous every bit the beef was, the stuffed pasta was our happy place. I could convey passed upward the loin inwards favor of to a greater extent than pasta please! The agnolotti were super large as well as the fresh homemade pasta was al dente, plump amongst tender shreds of beef cheek as well as brusk rib. Oh I'm sure y'all tin imagine how skillful it was! 

For dessert fresh strawberries inwards many forms. Pemeberton Strawberries amongst Honey lavander meringue as well as Okanagan caprine animal cheese mousse, Mini strawberry tarts amongst Lillooet Honey Pastry Cream, Strawberry Basil Consommé.  If the salmon dish reminded me of a marriage ceremony the dessert was similar a sugariness 16 birthday party. Again, then pretty but bursting amongst the vivid acidity as well as sweetness that exclusively comes inwards Summer. Strawberry consommé is something I must retrieve to brand inwards the future...

And to gild the lilly, Petit Fours - pâté de fruits, mini madeleines and French macarons.

I definitely recommend coming upward to Whistler inwards the Summer as well as if y'all tin larn to ane of these annual outdoor affairs, past times all means, arrive at it. If not, banking concern fit out the eating seat or the James Beard Nominated Araxi Seasonal Recipes from the Celebrated Whistler Restaurant.
