Piedmont Dinner at Gudrun

On April 19, I attended one of the long table dinners for the first time at Gudrun Tasting Room in Steveston. This exceptional dinner was created by Chef Paul Finlay who put together a delicious 6 course menu.

At two long tables guests enjoyed a selection canapes followed by multiple courses all following the Piedmont region.

This was a wonderful dinner with delicious food, in this charming restaurant hidden away in Steveston. My favourite dishes of the night were the house-made Jerusalem Artichoke & Porcini Agnolotti, the Radicchio, Apple, Walnuts & Spinach Salad and the Chocolate Bonet with Filipino rum and amaretti custard. Watch for their long table dinners usually held on Saturday nights featuring a different theme or region.
