Coming Soon: A Taste of MARKET

One of the most anticipated restaurants, MARKET, hosted a pop-up charity dinner event in mid-December at The Calgary Farmers’ Market. With all proceeds from the dinner going towards The Calgary Food Bank, the five course menu was well worth the ticket; both for a good cause and deliciousness.

MARKET’s executive chef Geoff Rogers (formerly of Home Tasting Room) and their chef de cuisine Dave Bohati (formerly of Rush) have joined together to head the culinary team of the upcoming restaurant, set to open February 1st, 2013 on 17th Ave SW.

Though the official menu for MARKET is not yet finalized the chefs gave last night’s guests a taste of what everyone could expect in the new year.

Their pop-up dinner menu was a reinvented look at the traditional Christmas Dinner full of flavour and flare. I may be biased, but, personally, I can’t wait for this restaurant to open its doors.

Until then, here are some teaser pictures of the style of tastiness you’ll be able to experience there…

Blood Orange and Cinnamon Cocktail, a sweet and spicy start to the evening.

Turkey Veloute, a rich soup reminiscent of a comforting stuffing and gravy.

Beet Salad, with edible ‘soil’, dehydrated candy cane beets, drizzled with a spruce tree simple syrup.

Yam Gnudi, with braised bison shortrib and italian meringue (a take on the old school yams and marshmallows)

Turkey Dinner, sous vide turkey with root vegetable puree, fried brussels sprouts, topped with a warm slice of tourtiere.

Eggnog Panna Cotta to end the evening.
