A culinary journey featuring innovative, locally-sourced dishes and wine pairings
On December 31st, welcome 2019 with friends and family at Aura Restaurant in Whistler’s Nita Lake Lodge. Guests are invited to enjoy an innovative 11-course tasting menu highlighted by local BC ingredients, prepared by talented Chef James Olberg.
“Join us at Nita Lake Lodge as we celebrate the close of another incredible year, which included being voted #5 Top Resort in Canada in the Condé Nast Traveler 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards – for a fourth consecutive year,” says Theresa Ginter, General Manager of Nita Lake Lodge. “Our beautiful backdrop of Nita Lake and the mountains beyond offer the perfect setting for a culinary feast, the perfect way to welcome 2019.”
Menu highlights include: oysters paired with Veuve Clicquot to begin; Chef Olberg’s favourite Braised Short Rib with marcona almonds soubise, pickled cipollini onions and dark chocolate sauce, paired with Kelowna’s Painted Rock Merlot; warming porcini mushroom soup; apple-brined pheasant breast with chestnut purée, confit cranberries, walnut crumble and apple gastric, accompanied by Tantalus Pinot Noir; a 6oz AAA Angus Beef Tenderloin with french beans, sautéed chanterelles, heirloom carrots, périgord truffle gratin dauphinois, cauliflower puree and whiskey shallot jus, paired with Napa’s Hess Allomi Cabernet Sauvignon; and to finish, three sumptuous desserts including Lemon Curd Cannoli paired with La Stella Muscato d’Osoyoos.
The 11-course New Year’s Eve tasting menu, including wine pairings, costs $299 (plus tax and gratuity). Spaces are very limited so early bookings are recommended. Nita Lake Lodge is Whistler’s only lakeside resort, surrounded by snow-capped mountains and offering guests genuine service, oversized suites, full-service spa, and innovative local cuisine; all within a 5-minute shuttle ride to world-renowned Whistler village and 2-minute walk to Whistler’s Creekside.
