Windjammer Restaurant, Delta Beausejour, Moncton, New Brunswick
Located in relatively rural New Brunswick, Chef Stefan Müller has access to some spectacular ingredients, many of which he has seen develop in the 14 years he has been at the Delta Beausejour. His 100 mile menu is served all summer long.
Begin with the very local Beausoleil oysters that find themselves on fine dining tables in all of eastern Canada. He serves them chilled on the half shell with apple and rooftop jalapeño jelly. From Acadian Cormier Village- fois gras pan seared with maple-pear purée, Brioche French toast, and topped with blueberry Magnetic Hill wine reduction. Lobster from Bay of Fundy comes served with potatoes, remoulade and “micro greens” (all local, of course) or in a classic bisque flamed with brandy.
If you’re craving scallops, he pan-sears them and serves with raspberry wine “caviar,” parsnips and Belliveau Orchard vinaigrette. Acadian sturgeon is served as a triple threat: smoked, cured with maple, and pan-seared, infused with spices. Wild boar loin from New Brabant is grilled and served avec parsnip gnocchi, cider jus and caramelized apple purée. If you have an urge to be really elegant, the diningroom is set up for table-side service (I LOVE IT!!) to flambé a perfect beef tenderloin with a classic green peppercorn sauce.
The Windjammer has become a perennial favourite on many annual “Best of” lists, and has been awarded –annually since 1992 – the CAA Four Diamond Award for excellence in dining.
