DROP-IN DINNER: Montreal Smoked Meat, Reimagined by Luke Hayes-Alexander

October 2, 2014 @ 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

Based on an old family recipe going back 25 years, Chef Luke Hayes-Alexander is re-imagining Montreal-style smoked meat for the 21st Century. A profoundly labour-intensive process of curing, smoking, aging and steaming transforms humble beef brisket into the tender, flavourful delicacy that has been a Jewish deli favourite for more than 60 years.

But that’s where the similarity ends… Chef Luke gives his smoked meat a decidedly modern twist, wrapping it in 2 hand-made flatbreads, one with a classic combination of homemade mustard and pickles, the other an exciting fusion with homemade kimchi, served along with a fresh coleslaw.
$12 (tax-in)

Dessert: Mandarin Cake with Kaya Jam
Delicate citrus-scented cake with a rich, Malaysian-style creamy coconut spread $5
