Borivage

To ring in this new milestone, Le Grand Lodge has decided to freshen up its website. With our partner, Influenza, we have collaborated on a new site that will soon be launched and we hope it will make your online reservations easy and simple. In order to arouse your curiosity, we are pleased to present a teaser of our new homepage.

Of course, we will be sure to let you know when it will officially be launched, and the address remains the same (www.legrandlodge.com). We thank you in advance for sharing with us your comments and suggestions in order to bonify this new website, made for you.

Winter has settled in  

Chez Borivage: Perfect score yet again

This confirms that we are living up to the high expectations of both our clients and our friends. Congratulations to the entire team!

See you soon by the fireside!

Borivage

Finally Mother Nature bestowed some hefty snowfalls upon us and we can celebrate the Holidays and New Year’s at it should be with crackling fires and snow covered trees. She had us worried for awhile but the lawn mowers were finally traded in for the snow ploughs… The winds of the Great North have spoken!

Chef David’s Recipe Corner

  Maple Glazed Sweetbread with Warm Curry and Tomato Salad

Ingredients

Ingredients - Curry Fennel

600 g calf sweetbread
60 g flour
30 ml olive oil
30 g shallot, minced
15 ml wine vinegar
60 ml maple syrup
200 ml veal stock
5 g ginger, cut in julienne
 
2 bulbs fennel cut in brunoise
30 ml olive oil
5 g Madras curry
Fleur de sel and freshly ground pepper
8 ripe cherry tomatoes
 
Tomate Cerise

In a saucepan drizzled with olive oil, sauté the fennel at low heat. Add the curry, fleur de sel and pepper. Keep warm.

Blanch the sweetbreads in boiling water for 6 minutes then cool in cold water. Clean the sweetbreads by removing the skin and the small nerves then slice in escalope. Flour lightly and brown on each side in a saucepan drizzled with olive oil. Keep warm.

Add the shallots in the same saucepan then add the vinegar and the maple syrup. Cook until caramelized then add the veal stock and ginger and let it reduce.

Make a cross-like incision on the tops of the cherry tomatoes, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper then bake for 5 minutes at 350°.

Prepare the plates: first place the curry fennel then arrange the sweetbreads over top and pour the sauce around the edge of the plate. Add the cherry tomatoes and shavings of maple sugar.

Some tricks from the Chef’s kitchen

When purchasing the sweetbreads make sure they are a good size, a milky color with a tint of pink and cook them soon after they have been purchased.

Before blanching the sweetbreads, soak them in lightly salted water for an hour. Change the water every 20 minutes.

Bon appétit !

Bartender's hint

A great bartender once shared with me an uncommon pearl of wisdom: «the best cocktails should never have more than 3 ingredients… and ice is one of the ingredients»! Too often there is a risk of masking the flavor of the main alcoholic drink when too many ingredients have been mixed together.

Here are some suggestions of delicious and simple combinations:
(serve in a tall glass with ice cubes)

Bourbon, lime juice and ginger ale
Vodka, orange juice and lemon soda
Gin and Black Sambucca
Rum and pineapple juice
Rye, Kahlua and milk

Moderation and balance are key…

Cheers!
