For those of you that don't know me, I am a huge advocate for farm to table cuisine. I even have three chickens in my own backyard in East Van. Reannan and myself recently decided to try out The Farmers Apprentice, upon recommendation from Pete Hesh of @petesmeats. This new Vancouver gem has recently been receiving a lot of notoriety and we needed to see what all the fuss was about. The atmosphere is very quant, with an open kitchen and chefs table that doubles as the bar. The Menu, which is 99% share plates, is an interesting mix of french classics with a unique country twist, and very comfortable pricing. When we sat down to dinner we had all the intentions to go see a late movie. As we sat enjoying great Okanagan wine and amazing food we decided we were much more content to order another round and stay a while. Reannan and myself give The Farmers Apprentice two thumbs up!
Fresh sour dough bread with caramelized onion butter and first press olive oil. This onion butter is so good we ordered two. Beet and apple salad with mint and shaved horseradish.
Smoked castelvatrano olives beside pork terrine served with brioche toast. The Smoked olives were melt in your mouth, this is another dish we ordered seconds on.
Crispy beef tongue with polenta. To finish it all off, home made caramel candies. farmersapprentice.caDrew Heifetz @drewheifetz
