$225 per person (includes food, wine; gratuity and taxes extra)
What happens when you pair two revered chefs from two esteemed Ontario properties, where wild produce grows in abundance and the earth’s bounty takes centre stage?
You get The Art of the Tasting Menu, the fourth of eight exceptional collaborations in the Partnership for Excellence series, a federally & provincially funded program in promotion of the Prince Edward County culinary industry.
For this rare occasion, Langdon Hall’s Executive Chef, Jason Bangerter, will be welcomed to The County’s magical Agricultural Tourism destination, Littlejohn Farm, by co-owners, Chef Zach Littlejohn and Luhana Littlejohn.
Guests can expect to be taken on a multi-course journey through flavours and flowers, where every ingredient will tell a story, and old and new world wine pairings will complement this exceptional gastronomic experience.
Chef Bangerter is a highly decorated and influential leader of the Canadian culinary scene; he has worked nationally and internationally alongside many of the world’s leading chefs. Nestled within the Carolinian Forest, Langdon Hall is one of Canada’s most sought-after Relais & Châteaux country house hotels.
Renowned for exquisite cuisine that changes to reflect the seasonality of the harvests, Chef Jason Bangerter offers guests an unforgettable dining experience.
The same is true of Littlejohn Farm, where Zach and Luhana host workshops and harvest dinners to teach people where their food comes from. Visitors leave with the knowledge that they have experienced something truly special which will be forever etched in their culinary memories.
The journey begins at 3.00 p.m. with a canapé reception and farm walkabout. Dinner follows with a menu created by Chefs Jason and Zach, inspired by the newly-released Langdon Hall: A Cookbook, a stunning collection of seasonally-inspired recipes by Chef Bangerter, with notes on techniques and wine pairings, plus fascinating stories about ingredients, cooking, farmers and purveyors.
Lesley Chesterman, Montreal-based journalist, and restaurant critic who has covered the local and international food scene for many years, will provide opening remarks to this epic collaboration.
And as if that weren’t enough, as a tangible reminder of this dining experience of a lifetime, each guest will receive a signed copy of Langdon Hall: A Cookbook.
Please note: this outdoor experience is part of Littlejohn Farm’s small scale special event series that occurs once per season of the calendar year and therefore, has extremely limited tickets and will run over the course of four to five hours.
