Winter Bites Culinary Week


Olde Walkerville’s hippest resto-lounge and tapas bar, situated in a beautifully restored heritage bank building, is back at it again with their 7-course tasting menu for Winter Bites Culinary Week.

The first 3 courses of this feast are set with an Amouse Bouche, Pistou and Sauteed Carrots as the items. The first course is also set as a Sorbet palate cleanser. Here is a showcase of the 3 Winter Bites selections that we here at WindsorEats are most excited about on their dinner menu for their fourth, sixth and seventh courses:

Cheese Ravioli with Fresh Pesto
I’ve always loved fresh pesto.

I really don’t eat much meat while I am at home, so when I head out to restaurants I usually go the beef route to satisfy any cravings. This sous-vide  5 oz. filet with sauteed herbed mushrooms and finished with a wine demi-glace is served with garlic mashed potatoes.

Chocolate Fudge Lava Cake
Seriously. Says this aloud to yourself a few times and see if your mind resist you wanting to devour a piece.

The Winter Bites Culinary Week dinner menu from Gourmet Emporium can be viewed here and is $35 per person. Reservations are strongly recommended.

Winter Bites is Windsor and Essex County’s very own restaurant week. From January 16 to January 22, 2012, diners can visit any Winter Bites participating restaurant and indulge in a 3-course meal, created with 3 options in each course to choose from. Participating restaurants are open during their regular hours of operation.
