Partake: Dinners at the Museum by Café Flo

Partake is a new monthly program that combines dinner and dialogue. One evening a month from May to October, guests take part in an evening of art & food, pairing a dynamic museum program with a specially orchestrated meal by Gourmet Galley. After a welcoming aperitif, guests enjoy a brief presentation — an amuse bouche for the mind — before heading to dinner.

The $75 per person fee is inclusive of the program, food, and wines.

The first Partake dinner takes place on May 22 at 6:30pm. Seating is limited.

The theme is Oh, Canada! The Art and Food of the Great White North.

To Start
Labatt Blue and Creton on Toast
Creton is a Spicy Pork Pate enjoyed in Canada particularly by those with a French influence

Dinner
Maple Glazed Cedar Plank Wild Salmon grilled over hard wood and served on the plank and sprinkled with Fresh Berries and Herbs
Wild Rice
Sautéed Wild Mushrooms and Fiddleheads
Bannacock- bread cooked on a stick over a fire

Dessert
Handmade Tiger Tail Ice Cream
Orange flavored ice cream with liquorish swirls, a Canadian Favorite
Brewed Illy Coffee and a Selection of Dammann Teas from France
