Good Eats – part 6

Last night was our final evening in Alberta, so we took Kaitlyn and her friend out to another of our favorite Calgary restaurants – Charcut Roast House. Some of you who watch “Top Chef Canada” may be familiar with this eatery – Connie DeSousa, the chef/owner was one of the top three finalists on Season 1.

An interesting feature of this restaurant is that the menu changes daily, but this should not be a concern as everything we have ordered has been delicious. Locally sourced ingredients add to the appeal of the menu options.
For an appetizer, our table – without question, always orders a Charcut Board – a selection of house-made sausage and cured meats. Anyone who appreciates quality cold cuts will want to order this platter. The meat varieties are served with whole grain mustard and toast rounds.

We also ALWAYS order the Duck Fat Poutine – hand cut fries are covered with cheese curds and truffle gravy. Once you eat the Duck Fat Poutine, New York Fries will seem like an abomination.

Each of us had a different entrée – and all were equally delectable.

Finally desert – Blueberry Cheesecake. This was the culmination of a terrific meal.
