My nephew has this very cute post-dinner habit of saying, “favourite. dessert” repeatedly until ice cream with chocolate sauce arrives on his plastic dining tray. Sometimes I know how he feels.
This weekend my favourite dessert came Sunday. After dropping a birthday present of magnolia branches off at my friend Kari’s house, Ash and I hiked around the beach at Cate’s Park and then settled onto the sunny patio at Arm’s Reach Bistro in Deep Cove. With gloves, scarves and a wet dog (but no jackets), we felt sun on our faces , read books and watched a live “man-on-a-wire” demonstration in the park.
I had: potato and leek pottage with crispy pancetta and white truffle oil.
He had: Bistro salad with seared sirloin, red grapes, pine nuts and balsamic magic.
We had: a nice time. Highly recommended day or night, but especially on the patio, whatever the weather.
