“Anyone can make you enjoy the first bite of a dish, but only a real chef can make you enjoy the last.” - Francois Minot
Regardless of the type of cuisine, the main dish should always be the plat de resistance, a soul-warming meal that will keep the bigger appetites circling for seconds. A well planned main course should be anticipated, and aim to satisfy and delight the diner. This is usually the heartiest or most filling dish of a meal, whether you are entertaining a crowd or making dinner for two.
Our local butcher, The Village Grocer makes the most amazing Maple Sugar Ham. It won the gold award in a ham making competition. It’s boneless and slow-roasted with maple syrup and brown sugar. Served with their famous Doreen’s Mustard Sauce, it makes a wonderful partnership, especially if sitting between a gorgeous egg bun.
