July 4 is as much a culinary holiday as anything else – family renunions with a parade of classic summer dishes made for the barbecue and outdoor dining. Chef Daniel Holloway of Urban Acorn Catering is tapping into his American roots for the quintessential July 4 flavours, and giving them a sophisticated (and local) twist!
Start off with bright and juicy waldorf salad with granny smith apples and caramelized pecans $4
Center stage is the classic American hamburger, upgraded to fresh-ground sirloin, and topped with corn salsa, Monterey jack, red romaine, roasted garlic and a pile of potato chips $12
Add a side of tender collard greens $3
For dessert there will be a “Southern Belle” peach blossom with bourbon caramel sauce $4
And what’s more American than a great deal?
Get everything for a Prix Fixe of $20
