PRET Kitchen Chronicles: In Search of Fall

Promoted Partner Content

There’s something about Fall that sparks excitement in the air! Maybe it’s the end of summer travels, family and play time, the return to schedules and activities (if you have young kids)….or possibly it’s the countdown to our favorite time of year, the Holidays!

In our business, this is the busiest of times of the year, so we caught our breaths and took a pause with some much needed “downtime” before gearing up for the holidays. We went in search of Fall!

Touring through Vancouver, Bowen Island, Victoria & Bend, Oregon there was no shortage of stunning foliage and beautiful scenery.

One of the highlights, and there were many- were the sights, smells and sensory overload of Granville Island’s Marketplace in Vancouver (thanks to my lovely friend Suzanne for the tip to stop there)!

There was no shortage of creative, stunning food to select from–the question was what to choose!

At the end of the day, after all of the sensory and savory sensations had been satiated, one simple but exquisite loaf of bread came out the winner.

Over dinner one of our last nights, our server “strongly recommended” the Warm Farro Bread with Salted Honey Butter as a starter.

Being a huge proponent of grains and incorporating them into any healthy eating plan, (with Farro being a favorite), this was a no-brainer. The warm, crunchy grainy flavor and texture was impeccable, and as recommended, did not let us down.

As with most establishments, recipes are not often divulged. But after a bit of research, we found the recipe below to be a very close match.

We wish you a happy season and “Bon Appetit” from the team at PRET Gourmet Catering! Send us some feedback at: Info@PretGourmet.com if you give this one a try!
