Lunenburg Scallops, Now Thats FRESH!

Lunenburg Scallops, Now Thats FRESH!

Alice Waters was probably right when she said that a piece of fruit is only perfect for a matter of moments and that its the responsibility of the supply chain to get it to the table at the aristocrat free online pokies where's the gold. Chef Sean Brock has my utmost respect for obsessing about the amount of time it takes a carrot to get from the dirt its grown in to the plate its consumed from. In Nova Scotia its not just big culinary names that share these sentiments. To quote a Nova Scotian on freshness would be far less whimsical than freespins ohne einzahlung, but it would share the function of Sean Brocks quick hit slots online real money.

Ill set the scene, two Nova Scotians walk into a casual restaurant or diner in the middle of whatever province or state in any country of your choice, but the important thing is salt water lies no closer than a days trip in any direction (unless its in a glass as a cure for a sore throat). On the menu youll find a pulled pork sandwich, a burger or even a steak served with house made onion rings. Chicken wings and mozzarella sticks with ranch dressing grace the snacks section. But here comes the blasphemy, Fresh battered fish and chips or Fresh bacon wrapped scallops. Everything is normal until the table next to our well intentioned travellers orders on the wild side and goes for some fresh seafood. Confusion sets in as the characters of our story ask the server how to get to the beach and wonder where the heck the locals are hiding the ocean if theres such a bounty of fresh seafood out here in this desert.

Albeit frozen at sea and same day air delivery from Nova Scotia to Vancouver have changed the landscape of freshness in the food world as a whole. Quality, even terroir can be sustained through hundreds of kilometres of travel or even a couple months of being frozen. We even expose ourselves to frozen and well traveled items at Rime when availability becomes an issue close to home. But I think that most Maritimers will agree that fresh is a term to be used to describe ocean bounty only when in fact the ocean is in plain view of the consumer or at least as they say around here, a hop, skip and just a short jump away.

The first thing we cooked in the Rime kitchen was scallop pasta, like in this blog, a stalwart in freshness and quality with an Italian or Mediterranean approach to accoutrements. We picked them up at Adams and Knickle on Montague Street in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. On a scallop day, there could be a line up out the door as everybody knows that these could be the freshest scallops to be had anywhere. Thus, the simple approach to seasoning this dish subtly and helping the main ingredient make the big splash on your taste buds.

I hope you enjoy this dish and that if you don`t live a hop, skip or even a jump from the ocean, that you find yourself in such a position at some point in the future to enjoy this scallop pasta. And even if its not scallops that are available or in season, that you find any mollusc, bivalve or crustacean to indulge and that when you try the pasta in this recipe whatever the seafood used, your experience is as authentic as a burger at Stampede Week or a sausage during Oktoberfest.

BOURGEOIS GOURMET: Ambience, cuisine perfect match at Rime

For a very young chef to get the chance to design his own menu, learn about wine and be taught how to run a business, all at the same time well, its not very common.

Yet thats just the situation Jeffrey MacNeil fell into when he was hired a few years ago as the first chef at Luckett Vineyards, attending, as he describes it, Pete Luckett finishing school.
