Parallel 49 Cask Dinner at Falconetti’s

On March 13th, I dined at Falconetti’s for their first Food & Beer series dinner, local brewery Parallel 49 was the featured brewery of the night who created a special cask for this occasion. Executive Chef Shaun Snelling who recently took over the ranks at this eatery, prepared is first menu of this new series and I was invited for this special dinner and my friend Rob Kemp joined.

First Course:

Beer Glazed Smoked Duck Breast

Beer glazed smoked duck breast, soft poached egg, toasted almonds, shaved parmesan, Arugula and frisee with a lemon brown butter vinaigrette

Second Course:

Confit of Pork Loin

Confit of pork loin, potato rosti, crispy onions, served with a roasted mushroom and bacon ragout.

Third Course:

Apple Cinnamon Turnover

My favourite dish was the hot Apple Cinnamon Turnover with the delicious smoked maple Jamesons caramel and vanilla ice cream. My 2nd favourite was the Beer Glazed Smoked Duck breast which was smoked in house and paired well with the Parallel 49 cask.
