It’s been two weeks and I’m still thinking about the fabulous meal that I had at Muse. It had been a few years since I had been to Muse and I was excited to have been invited to the Media Showcase. New owners Heather Wighton and Stephen Deere along with their Executive Chef JP Pidhirney invited some Calgary food lovers to try out a few of their amazing offerings.
The evening started mingling with fellow foodies while enjoying drinks and fresh shucked oysters. This was followed by a tasting menu complete with wine pairings.
Highlights of the five course meal were the fresh hamachi and the succulent lamb. Here’s a recap of the delicious meal that we enjoyed:
An amuse bouche consisting of Pears and Crispy Chicken Skin in a Rutabaga Cream Bisque.
Hamachi with Coriander and Lime Vin, Radishes, Red Chili’s and Togarashi
Potato Risotto with Green Peas, Truffles and a Sous Vide Egg
Grilled Sturgeon with Beet Ribbon, Brussel Sprouts, served with a Borscht Consomme and Caviar Creme Fraiche
Grilled Lamb Saddle with Crispy Lamb Belly, Cippolini Onion, Farinata and a Black Olive Emulsion.
A palate cleanser of a Crab Apple Soda
Chocolate Cremaux with Toasted Meringue, Sweet Potato Sorbet and Lemon Gel.
