    Stollen

    My favorite stollen last year was the 4 seasons. I just called, and the person answering the phone said they are not selling them this year! ← Thanks for checking that out, even though the answer is disappointing. Any chance of Les Amis getting into the baking business? ← I am happy to inform you we are selling stollen this year at Four Seasons. Simply contact our room service and place an order. Hope to see you in soon, Aaron. ← Thanks for letting us know Aaron. I'll put in an order tomorrow. ← Great! Glad I could help. Don't forget to check out our new restaurant when you come in. Aaron.

  3. There's a top feature in the latest Vancouver Magazine on great brunches. A.
  4. Try 'La Boqueria' at the Four Seasons for a latin inspired brunch. Every sunday in the Garden Terrace. A.
  5. Try Columbus meats on Renfrew @ 1st. I always go there for my bunny. Fresh, and it still has some of the inards if you're into it. Try a tasty rabbit liver parfait or some devilled rabbit kidneys, yum!

  7. Give our pests a chance Sean, they really ain't that bad. 'Specially when ya back over 'em a few times with the Hilux, supa tender mate. We had a roo tail braise last time I went home and it was amazing, alot like beef cheeks. I've always wanted to put a dish on the menu with emu and roo cooked 2 ways. I'd call it 'Coat of Arms', don't know how it'd fly though. Back on topic, a gentlemen down at Oyama told me he has a producer of this swine in B.C. and around 2007 will release his first version of Serrano. Can't wait they do some amazing charcuterie down there.
  8. Try the restaurant at the Four Seasons Whistler. They have a great deal on at the moment. Sun - Thurs, $39... Start with a seafood tasting, your choice of appy, then your choice of main. All off the the a la carte menu. Or $45 for the 3 courses with a choice of dessert. You cant beat it. We went with the inlaws last week and it was outstanding!
  9. I went the other night and had the tacos. I didn't think $13 was that bad for tacos as I found them pretty damn tasty. Everything super fresh and made withlove. I dont know about blue cheese salad with jalepenos though. We also had a kessadilla and a few cocktails. The drink prices were steep and can't recommend any of the cocktails. I also thought the $9 white sangria was a rort. We could've spent it on 3 bottles of Boon's. The atmosphere and crowd was great. Service good and on the ball. Definitly would go back. Where is this cheap sushi y'all talk of? I thought there was a reason there was 'cheap' sushi and it was cause it ain't good. I'd be keen to check out some of these gems. I know its off topic, but any recommendations?
  10. I recently discovered Coopers and VB have made there way here to Vancouver. I aso had the pleasure of opening up my birthday present that my mum lugged across the seas, a cube of XXXX. Su-weet. I think I might have another now. Dammit only 15 left, Mmmmmm I miss home.
  11. Try cooking meat @ 180 F for an hour and see what you get. Forget crispy pork, try food born illness.
  12. I always get ours from the Dollar Meat Store in chinatown. Super good with great crackling and salty anisey spice on the under belly. V' good.
  13. There was a Globe article on it here and a thread on it here besides the items further up this very thread. Our fine-feathered pal Andrew wrote about them in a recent Westender I believe... ←
  14. I ran past a cool looking joint on the water today in the C area called Marmelade (sp?). Comments anyone? Cafe Setto in the old Death by Chocolate is doing some amazing cocktails. Go and see the Aussie bloke at the bar for these beauties (plug for the home team). What is it about passionate barmen in this city, first I came across an ex-pat at Chambar that was doing wonders, now another brother mixing it up in your fair city. Is it a inbred passion for booze or are we all alcoholics at heart!
