It’s always a treat when we visit Burdock and Co. whether it is for Brunch or a Chef’s pop-up dinner. We love Chef Andrea Carlson’s organic small plates and Naturalist wines in a casual setting. After their recent Platinum award for Wine Program Excellence at the Vancouver International Wine Festival, Burdock & Co has decided to switch things up to celebrate the season. Starting this week, the wine list will be in full bloom with orange and pink wines only, with a fresh harvest of spring ingredients to complement.

Burdock and Co.’s Spring Menu is crafted with select wines in mind and seasonal greens such as fiddleheads, knotweed and spring asparagus. Salads include foraged greens like watercress, ox-eyed daisies, shooting stars, sorrel, monad and blossoming currents. Of course, the dish changes each week depending on what the foragers bring in through the kitchen doors.

We started the evening off with some cocktails and non-alcoholic mocktails.

Burdock’s Boilermaker: saison beer, whiskey, gingerbeer, burdock root, sour ginger, plum and rootbeer bitters. Any drink with gingerbeer is always good in my books!

Lavender’s Blue: lavender and hibiscus flower, lemon, grapefruit and hops bitters, sparkling water. Rigorously refreshing and not too sweet. If you insist, ask about adding some gin.

House Milled Sourdough Bread 6: this sourdough bread with rye is deliciously insane and served with cultured butter. Lightly salted for the irresistible that you’d want to order seconds just eat alone and to soak up the sauces from the other dishes you’re going to consume.

Grilled Humbolt Squid 17: perfectly cooked squid is tender and has a marvelous toothsome silky texture. Anyone knows that it cooks very quickly and once it’s overcooked it will taste like erasers. Who wants to eat rubber bands? Not me!

Served with picked ramps and marinate in fermented barley chilli, lemon, and ginger.

Roasted Knotweed with White Proscuitto 16: Pictured above does not include proscuitto as pregnant ladies should avoid cured meats and cold cuts. It is served with duck hollandaise! We loved the balance of acidity, texture and the smokiness from the grill. Suddenly this it puts a whole different meaning to this invasive species of Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica) in British Columbia.

Chocolate Mousse: Chilled chocolate mousse is mildly bitter with a smooth finish.

 

The most popular pairing du jour is the fettuccini tossed in a sea urchin butter sauce and cured egg yolk, paired with the popular ‘Ageno’ from La Stoppa. The umami of the pasta brings out the stone fruit freshness of the wine, and it is noted that when this pairing hits the table, the conversation usually stops – it’s a good kind of quiet.

I’m also looking forward to other dishes like the Crispy Chicken with Dill Pickle Mayo and also the Udon in Sesame Seed Broth with fiddleheads from Vancouver Island.

 

The new wine program will remain at the restaurant while quantities last – upon wine stock completion the restaurant will return to its original award winning list.

Chef Andrea Carlson was first inspired to collaborate with Chef Masayoshi after visiting his Fraserhood restaurant and having the Omakase menu, especially enjoying the Clear Soup, made to order, tableside and watching his intricate and precise knife skills. Burdockandco.com
Masayoshi Baba was born with great passion of Japanese cuisine. He has almost 20 years of kitchen and sushi experiences with many types of Japanese cuisine, “WA SHOKU” but his passion is not only Japanese food. He has studied many kinds of international cuisine. He started his kitchen experience when he was a university student. Since then, he has never stopped studying food. His creations are based on Japanese cooking techniques but he uses many different cultures’ cooking techniques to get UMAMI out from each ingredient with perfect timing and seasons. Since he came to Vancouver, he is leading Vancouver Sushi culture as a sushi chef. He was working as a sushi chef at one of the high-end Japanese restaurants for about 10 years and finally he opened his own restaurant with his passion and his own creations. Masayoshi.ca
Masa Shiroki is the Sake Maker for Osake Sakes on Granville Island, which is known as a unique commercial winery that produces award winning, hand-made, small batch sake. Also in his portfolio is rice farm in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, marking it the first sake rice production in Canadian history! It is also the most northerly rice production region in the world. Shiroki’s Abbotsford rice not only goes towards Sake but can also be found on menus in many Vancouver restaurants.

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”18625″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]

Elements Urban Tapas Parlour (or as I like to just call it Elements Tapas Bar) is located conveniently in Whistler Village by IGA and Crepe Montagne. You can either park on Main Street or at the IGA parking lot. Elements does not take reservations. Their sister restaurant, Wild Wood Pacific Bistro is also pretty spectacular.

Two Tone Frites 6: Potato and yam fries are crispy and thinly cut, tomato chutney and curry aioli

Steamed West Coast Mussels 17: Lemongrass, kaffir lime, coconut red curry. The mussels were a on the skinny side albiet quite fresh.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”18634″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]Wild BC Salmon Combo Plate 17: cured, maple smoked and tartar with potato chips, crostinis and creme fraiche. This salmon three way dish was probably my least favorite dish. The portions were small and sharing this plate was hard to feel satisfied. The maple smoked salmon with tartar sauce was too heavy and I simply was not a fan of the composition.

We originally wanted to order the Heritage Angus Beef Tenderloin with sautéed kale, double baked cheese stuffed potato, topped with beef compound butter, seasoned with truffles – but they ran out.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”18635″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]

Roast Duck Breast 17: Juicy and tender duck brest with maple roasted root vegetables and beet relish. Great flavors and made up for the salmon we had earlier.
