Back in August, my friend and I went hiking on Whistler Mountain. After 6-hour hiking under 35 degrees, we were totally exhausted. We decided to have dinner in Whistler.

As my friend hadn’t been to my favorite crepe restaurant, we headed there. Crepe Montagne is located in Village North, behind IGA market and close to 7-Eleven. It was really nice to sit at their patio in the summer time.

We ordered from their lunch/dinner and dessert menu and shared.

Collin and I sometimes watch the TV show called Chopped. And one day, I asked him what if I choose ingredients in a mystery box and you cook. He said “yeah!” Well, there is no one chopped, though.

It’s been a while since the last challenge again! This is the 8th one. This time, he asked me to buy ingredients but not to tell him until he started cooking, instead of telling him before he goes shopping.

We don’t have a pantry like the TV show has, so I told him to buy things that you might want to use with the secret ingredients that I bought.

Ingredients for Appetizer:

Ingredients for Main dish:

  • Ground Beef, and
  • Eggplant

There were more ingredients that I listed, but some of them weren’t cookable when he started cooking, so I eliminated them and the list ended up being small.

Both need to be cooked within one hour. He can use whatever in cupboard or fridge.


Here are outcomes of his cooking. He plated both in one plate.

Appetizer: Tuna Tataki Soba Salad with Sweet Pea Shoots


It was kind of sad to see the fact that he actually cooked expensive fatty tuna. 😦 Well, the taste was good, but I wanted to eat as raw. 😛 On the other hand, the Soba noodles were cooked nicely with Dashi, although he hadn’t done before. I ate more after I cleaned the plate. Adding pear and pea shoots was helpful to taste together.

Main dish: Beef and Eggplant Croquette with Long Beans and Asparagus


As he found out that one of suppose-to-be-ingredients wasn’t cookable just before he prepared, he had to change the plan. He used Panko (Japanese breadcrumb) to make croquette.

Diced eggplant was in the croquette, but I didn’t taste them at all. I probably ate long beans first time. It was OK. I don’t think it tasted good with the croquette. And, I wish he had more sauce to eat croquette.


Verdict: I didn’t enjoy the main much, but it’s kind of my fault that I didn’t check all ingredients were ready. So, fifty-fifty?

Collin asked me what I wanted to eat, so I requested risotto and something with shrimp. When he came back from shopping, he cleaned a rainbow trout and filleted the fish.

He added some asparagus into mushroom risotto as well as mushroom.

Mushroom Risotto and Pan-seared Rainbow Trout & Black Tiger Prawn

The black tiger prawns tasted like dirt, and he knew the fact that all black tiger prawns these days are usually like that, because farmers actually raise those prawns in the rice field.
