Ahhh tomatoes – the ultimate summer food – ripe, juicy and brimming with sunshine goodness. I had dinner the other night at Provence Marinaside to taste their special 3 course Tomatoes inspired menu.
I loved the Heirloom Tomato Tart which was served over a bed of tasty greens to start, this was followed by the moist Sun-dried Tomato and Caper crusted Sabelfish for my entree in a tomato broth with greens.
For dessert I had the choice of the Sundried Cherry Tomato Upside Down Cake which I did not select, instead I had the delicious Strawberry Franzipan Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream. This 3 course Tomato Festival Menu is $48 and runs throughout August until the 31st
As an added incentive (as if you needed one) Provence will donate $3 from every Tomato Festival Menu sold to support Growing Chefs, an organization that teaches school children about growing and preparing food.
Provence Marinaside is located in Yaletown.
