Por­to­bello Mar­ket & Fresh Bak­ery at the Fair­mont Chateau Whistler

Whistler Traveller Magazine - - TASTE | HOT SPOT - 604-938- 8000 | fair­mont.com/whistler

There’s just the right amount of pork-crack­ling crunch served on a Por­to­bello pork porchetta sand­wich, one of the many mouth­wa­ter­ing deli-counter op­tions at this Up­per Vil­lage lunch spot at which a meal isn’t com­plete with­out a deca­dent maple cream dough­nut for dessert. How­ever, a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar ren­o­va­tion last fall means that the palate-pleas­ing no longer stops in the af­ter­noon. It’s now an ideal lo­ca­tion for that sunny après ses­sion where you can sip on a lo­cally brewed beer, small-batch gin and tonic, or a B.C. wine, ei­ther on the Por­to­bello pa­tio or perched on a stool at the new Wa­ter­ing Hole Bar. While you re­lax, cooks buzz in the an­i­mated open kitchen where two an­tiquestyle Miwe Wenz 1919 ovens shipped di­rectly from Europe en­joy a place of pride. As well, an open-flame ro­tis­serie and smoker are key pieces of equip­ment be­hind Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Is­abel Chung’s new smoke­house din­ner menu that in­cludes smoked brisket and prime rib, spiced pork ribs and slow-cooked turkey wings. The style is re­laxed moun­tain chic with farm-style long ta­bles and ex­posed brick­work matched with black-and-white pho­tog­ra­phy of iconic Whistler scenes. If you want to take a lit­tle of that “chic” home, head to their mar­ket-style re­tail sec­tion where you’ll find lo­cally made prod­ucts rang­ing from or­ganic balms to wo­ven blan­kets, hand-stitched leather satchels to fra­grant can­dles, beau­ti­fully pack­aged can­dies to el­e­gant spreads — per­fect for gifts or as your own hol­i­day me­men­tos.
