Thanksgiving is coming up soon for us Canadians, and that means (or can mean) cooking up a large turkey. Perhaps you would like someone else to take on the cooking for you this year? If so, you may want to try l’Epicerie Gourmande. Read their announcement below.
(Vancouver, BC) – To paraphrase Shakespeare – ‘would a roast turkey by any other name taste so good?’ It does when it’s called ‘le dindon’ – the French name for our iconic celebratory bird. With the Thanksgiving holiday just around the corner, people are starting to think about the annual groaning board of turkey with all the fixin’s.
Not everyone has the time, or the kitchen space, to prepare the full traditional feast. That’s where L’Epicerie Gourmande comes to the rescue. Located in the Granville Island Market, L’Epicerie is an authentic French rotisseur and gourmet shop – just like the ones along the Rue de Rivoli in Paris. Under the ownership of Chef David Izquierdo, a native of Marseilles and alumni of the kitchens at Provence Restaurants and Salade des Fruits, L’Epicerie specializes in succulent meats cooked on a Doregrill Neoflame Rotisserie imported from France. The shop also features many other prepared-foods-to-go along with premium EVOO, balsamic vinegars and gourmet condiments.
L’Epicerie is offering a very special three-course prix fixe Thanksgiving Dinner-To-Go value-priced at $24.99 per person. If you want only the turkey main course, that is available for $14.99.
