Seduction–One Night at Chesswood

Everyone Eats When… A Chesswood Teaser!!

Seduction–One Night at Chesswood

Standard

 

chesswood1

Chesswood-Saturday, May 7th. Carleton Place- was open all weekend for an UNADVERTISED- KEPT ON THE DOWN LOW- WORKING ON  GETTING THINGS TOGETHER soft opening.

HOW about savouring a glass of wine while your tongue slides over Baked Brie with spiced bacon jam and hot pepper jelly on baguette thins. It glistens. It drips– it uses props. It is all–it is both lusty and intimate.

A well placed fork and attentive service reminds us of our manners like a polite slap on the wrist. The menu invited the mind to wander.

The Crispy Pineapple Shrimp?  Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about crispy fried shrimp, charred pineapple curry and cilantro cream–but were afraid to ask.  In my mind it is the perfect sexual symbolism of food. To die for my friends- to die for.

If you have delicate sensibilities– and the Seafood Mac and Cheese with black tiger shrimp, crab, cavatappi aged cheddar and garlic Parmesan bread crumbs offends you, then I ask you not continue on.

The construction of food sometimes stands in for exotic positions. We encounter Organic Meatloaf balancing delicately in a towering timbale. Succulent al dente beets and carrots, almost tasting like they were picked that very morning, lean suggestively on a lounge of velvety smashed potatoes. A colorful reduction sauce is drizzled around the scene like so many scented candles of an idealized romantic encounter.

Everyday green tea and pound cake become elevated. Like our proverbial girl or boy next door, we gaze at this Deep Fried ice Cream and feel like we are seeing them for the first time. The shaved chocolate and whipped cream was not enough– I wanted more.

The Dessert menu encouraged the audience to view it with anticipation and desire. Lemon Meringue Cheesecake and their famous Twisted Apple Tart along with other delights captivated my longing eyes. How twisted was that apple tart? Inquiring minds wanted to know.

Food porn is ever at our fingertips at Chesswood, but, thankfully we are not condemned to just simply look and covet without being able to taste. We tasted- and tasted again–we fell hopelessly in love– and ever so gladly went down the rabbit hole of fine dining cuisine.

A great new fine dining restaurant is opening Tuesday in Carleton Place!

What Is Fine Dining You Ask?

Fine dining restaurants, also referred to as white tablecloth restaurants, are typically higher end and fancier restaurants. As opposed to casual eateries, cafes or family-style restaurants, fine dining  provides the highest quality of food. Fine dining restaurants also generally offer more exotic or interesting menu items and in a day or so I will share their menu with you. Great bar for socializing too with excellent local beers on tap!

Seafood Mac n Cheese anyone? Lamb Burger? I don’t know about you but I am excited to try the Twisted Apple Tart. Well, you know me:)

 

This was the teaser last night:

chess5

Try the salami, Lisa
Get with the gravy, Debbie
Everybody eats when they come to my house

Pass me a pancake, Mandrake
Havin’ a derby, Irvy
Look in the fendel, Mendel
Everybody eats when they come to my house

I’ve fixed your favorite dishes

Hopin’ this good food fills ya
Work my hands to the bone in the kitchen alone
You better eat if it kills ya

(Chef Dan Serson under the watchful eye of Councillor Sean Redmond) 

chess1

Hey, this is a party, Marty
Well, you get the cherry, Jerry
Now look, don’t be so picky, Mickey
‘Cause everybody eats when they come to my house

chess4

Oh, do have a knish, Arlene
Pass him the latke, Arlene
Chili con carne for Arlene
Everybody eats when they come to my house

Suddenly it was…
