The Dinner Party Part Three: The Menu


Guests feast on Alters’ offerings

The food did what great food always does: It brought diverse people together – if only fleetingly – around shared sensations. This is what Lloyd’s partner, Kelly Rossiter, offered guests.


  • Chicken Negimaki
  • Smoked Mozzarella Canapes with tomatoes and olives (in the last minute panic she forgot the Mozzarella!)

    Main Course

  • Sauerbrauten
  • Grilled Miso Salmon
  • Crispy Five Spice Tofu
  • Pommes Paillasson
  • Green Bean Salad with Pumpkin seed dressing
  • Beet Salad with Asian Pear and Baby Lettuce
  • Roasted Root Vegetables
  • Spicy Cheese Bread
  • Baguette


  • Cranberry Tart
  • Emma’s funny Marble Cake (it was the closest she could come to her black and white theme)


    Cheese Tray

  • Ciel de Charlevoix – raw cow’s milk from Quebec (that was the veined cheese)
  • Brillat Savarin – pasturised cow’s milk from France (that was the brie style)
  • Munster Remi Rudler – raw cow’s milk from France
  • Bouq Emissaire – raw goat’s milk from Quebec
  • Ile-Aux-Graves – 2 yr cheddar, raw cow’s milk from Quebec
  • Morbier – raw cow’s milk from France

    The cheese came from Les Petits Plaisirs d’Andrea at 29 Yorkville Avenue (the official opening is on Wednesday starting at 5:00)

    The carrots, parsnips, beets, baby greens and pumpkin seeds came from the Dufferin Grove Farmer’s market from local growers.
