…AND HE’S BACK! Fresh from his winter retreat on the Costa Alegre, Toronto culinary icon Chef Greg Couillard returns to The Dep with an exciting new lineup of dishes inspired by the flavours of the Pacific coast of Mexico.
Tacquito de pato y mole con pico de pato
Small tortilla rolls stuffed with duck confit and a chocolate-chili mole, with a mango, jicama and tomato salsa.
Coctel de cameron en aguachile
A spicy, tangy cocktail of lightly poached shrimp, tossed with avocado, cucumber, green serrano chili, cilantro and tomato, served with crispy with corn totopos.
Chamorro de cordero
Slow-braised lamb shank in a cumin-scented casera red chili sauce over creamed mexican polenta and served with a chayote with corn sautée.
Guava pay de queso
Decadently rich, guava-infused cheesecake
It would not be hyperbole to suggest that Greg Couillard is one of the most influential chefs in Toronto’s culinary history. Through groundbreaking restaurants like The Parrot, Stelle, Avec, Sarkis, The Spice Room and many others, his prescient embrace of this city’s multicultural flavours and ingredients revolutionized fine dining in Toronto, and foreshadowed the eclectic, international menus many now take for granted.
Every weekend The Depanneur invites a guest chef to host a fun, informal BYOB dinner party.
