Featuring gorgeous food and location photography throughout, readers will be transported to the century-old luxury estate. Some of the dishes are ambitious and others are simpler and come together easily—all within the reach of the home cook.
Nestled within the Carolinian Forest in southwestern Ontario, Langdon Hall is one of the Canada's most gorgeous country house hotels. Renowned for exquisite cuisine that changes with the seasons to reflect the reaps of the harvest—wild produce growing in abundance on the property and the bounty of the kitchen gardens—Chef Jason Bangerter offers guests an unforgettable dining experience. In the spring this might mean Sweet Pea Tart with Fresh Peas from the Garden and Buckwheat, and the summer might inspire Sea Scallops with White Beet Purée and Beetroot Cream. Upon the arrival of first frost, seasonally inspired dishes include Autumn Squash Soup with Sweetbreads, Chestnuts and Orchard Apple, or Sweet Corn and Mustard Caramel with Brown Butter Pound Cake and Popped Sorghum. Snow-covered months of winter offer comforting dishes like Beef Short Rib and Rutabaga with Black Truffle and Madeira Jus, or a decadent Milk Chocolate Tart with Cocoa Crust and Passion Fruit.
