Duo of Cor­nish Game Hen

There are so many tex­tures and fresh bursts of flavour in this dish, it’s hard to be­lieve it con­tains no dairy or gluten. Hokkaido pump­kin, roasted and puréed, re­place the stan­dard po­tato. Oven-dried toma­toes, onion crisps and steamed or­ganic broc­coli add hefty taste and va­ri­ety. Chef de Cui­sine Axel Obeth notes that game hen is even less fatty than salmon, mak­ing it a per­fect fit for the ho­tel, with its fo­cus on health and well­ness. You can, how­ever, bet that there is still plenty of but­ter and salt in the browned bone-stock re­duc­tion. “Of course,” he says with a laugh. “That’s what makes it taste awe­some.” 604-966-5700 | ni­ta­
