On January 29th, I dined at Darby’s Public House for the Gluten Free Dinner which was paired with Magic Moments Vodka Cocktails. The vodka is made from rice and is Gluten Free so it was fitting for this dinner. Chef A.J. Jackson prepared 3 courses which were paired with each of the cocktails.
Wild Mushroom Risotto with green pea puree and shaved parmesan
Yarrow Meadows Duck Confit with white bean puree, roasted brussel sprouts, red beets and cassis demi
Mocha Torte a flourless chocolate cake with espresso marscapone mouse, chocolate ganache and espresso crème anglaise
My favourite dish was the Yarrow Meadows Duck Confit which was outstanding. My favourite pairing was the Mocha Torte and the Mumbai Night cocktail which was made with chocolate vodka and delicious. Darby’s Public House is located at 2001 Macdonald Street in Vancouver. Learn more about Magic Moments Vodka here.
