L’ABATTOIR LAUNCHES CONCOCTIONS AND CONFECTIONS
A collaboration between the pastry and bar teams at Gastown culinary institution launches November 21st
L’Abattoir has been helping to lead the direction of cocktail culture in Vancouver since its inception in 2010 and the bartending team continue to do so with Concoctions and Confections that launches this week.
Only available to guests seated at the bar, Concoctions and Confections is a collaboration between the award winning pastry team lead by Pastry Chef, Hilary Prince and the bartending team overseen by Philipp Karatsyupa.
“Driven by the union of flavours between each drink and its dessert, the additions to the menu offer an exciting, sensory way to indulge” says Monique Manuel, the bartender that headed the development of this program.
The collaborative pairings will be available to guests seated at the bar and consist of three offerings, each with a different flavour profile and designed to be the perfect end to an evening.
Philipp Karatsyupa, Bar Manager at L’Abattoir, says of the program, “we’re excited to add these creative after dinner offerings to our menu at the bar which are a testament to the synergy between our bar & pastry teams.”
Guests will find the inaugural Concoctions and Confections listed below being offered at the L’Abattoir bar starting on Thursday November 21, 2019.
