Two of my amazing friends got hitched this weekend! It was such a fantastic evening and so full of love, dancing, plenty of wine, and amazing food!!!!
The venue for the ceremony and reception was Edible Canada Bistro at the Market on Granville Island (located across from the market).
We all started with a Market Garden Salad; local greens, Okanagan goat cheese, sunflower seeds and vinaigrette. This was a killer salad and a nice large serving with an abundance of greens. They certainly
weren't stingy with the creamy goat cheese or sunflower seeds either.
We were given the option of Fish, Beef, or Vegetarian for our Mains. I selected fish and was presented with Kasu and Birch Sablefish with green beans, asparagus, northern beans and Swiss Chard. This was a nice, large entree. This fish was buttery, supple, and melt-in-your mouth delious. The sauce/marinade was subtle, with a nice flavour and the veggie accompaniment was well-cooked, well-seasoned, and tasty.
They were able to create a delicious Vegan Entree for the Sous Chef Shredded Roasted Zuchinni with roasted eggplant, tomato and basil pesto.
The Beef Main was Steak Frites. Awesome presentation and everyone who opted for beef seemed happy to see these plates come out. Our server was so nice that when myself and a dining neighbour asked for a side of fries, he was happy to oblige. These fries were awesome- fresh, well-seasoned and uber crispy. I loved their house made ketchup, which was more like a tomato paste, fresh tasting, not too sweet with a slightly smoky flavour.
The Vegetarian option looked pretty delicious too. Crispy Ricotta and Pea Gnocchi with seasonal market vegetables.
Rather than the traditional wedding cake or cupcakes, the couple had the bistro served a Okanagan Peach Cobbler with hazelnut crumble and cinnamon honey whipped cream. I think this was a shout out to the groom's roots in Summerland- also represented in the wedding favours, which were amazingly delicious homemade jam (the groom's mother's famous recipe). This Cobbler was really nice, with a crispy breaded topping and light whipped topping. It wasn't too sweet and wasn't too heavy.
They even created a gorgeous vegan version of an apple/blueberry crumble.
All around, I found the portions to be perfect...we were full but not too full to keep drinking and bust some sweet moves on the dance floor!
Fantastic wedding venue and fantastic food!
