Posts Tagged ‘Mashed potatoes’

So, Collin and I spent a whole day on BC Day, hiking, having brunch, and shopping. When we got home, he prepared for dinner right away! Wow, he must have been so excited for cooking with all ingredients we got that day.

I don’t know how he does, but everything happened at the same time, and a nice meal came out.

It looks good, doesn’t it? It tasted great, too!

I have never heard about fourchette, so I asked him. Fourchette is fork in French, and it is mashed with fork in the cooking term. This fourchette potatoes was mixed with Dungeness crab meat. So, delicious!

I bought some beets at Farmer’s Market, so I asked Collin to make something with them. (Haha, I never cook beets before.) I also asked to use potatoes that we still have bunch. He said he would make mashed potatoes, so I requested to add yam potatoes.

Oh, beets were fantastic! So were eggplants. Mashed potatoes with yam (that he claimed sweet potato) was yum, too. The only problem was that the dish was huge. 😛

My friend sent me a link that said the restaurant held 30th anniversary event that offered $30 or $35 3-course food, and she asked me if I was interested. Why not? Although she preferred weekend, I had uncertain plans next two weekends, so we decided to go on a weekday.

The Boathouse is in multiple locations, and we went to English Bay’s. The area was full of people, maybe because of Friday, or maybe because of young people who just graduated. Anyways, we were seated in the window side seat. There were a few big group sitting at tables, so I guess reservation is recommended.

We ordered from their $35 3-course dinner.

I asked medium rare, but it was more like medium. Well, I certainly like medium rare.

The worst thing of my dish was mashed potatoes. You know, I love mashed potatoes! One of the reason that I chose this over my friend’s was mashed potatoes. Unfortunately, this one was inedible. I ate one bite and wondered, and the second and third bites made me sure it was too salty. I told our server, and he brought some in another plate, but it was still inedible. Too much salt. (I don’t think they made new from the scratch, but just game me from the same batch.) Of course, I left them.

And for dessert, we both ordered the same one.
