TORONTO – Canyon Creek Chophouse restaurants in the Greater Toronto Area recently unveiled a new menu chock-full of locally inspired ingredients and flavours.
The eight locations offer a ‘harvest-themed’ menu using fresh products from some of the province’s many farms. Running until November 25, the promotion also features wines from Niagara’s Henry of Pelham, plus more than 15 Ontario-based ingredients, like Purdy Fisheries Pickerel and Yukon Gold potatoes from Cohn Produce.
“We are always looking for new and inventive ways to raise the bar at our restaurants,” Corey Dalton, SIR Corp. restaurant group president, said. “I am pleased to say we’sve had a positive impact on sustaining Ontario’s growing industry by supporting so many local farms this fall. Using local Ontario farm-fresh food is the right thing to do, and I’sm proud to say Canyon Creek has been able to embrace the wonderful foods that grow in our own backyard.”
Locally-inspired dishes include: honey garlic Angus beef short ribs with Cohn Produce Yukon Gold mash and roasted Carron Farms heirloom carrots (as pictured); Wellington County dry aged striploin, a 10-oz New York steak, served with a Cohn Produce Yukon Gold, fully loaded baked potato; and harvest pumpkin cheesecake, topped with Iroquois cranberry compote and sugared walnuts.
