Celebrate Caviar Festival with Ancora Ambleside and False Creek – November 2 to 22, 2021
Celebrated Executive Chef Sebastian Delgado of Ancora False Creek and Executive Chef Jorge Kim of Ancora Ambleside have curated creations cultivated from across the globe in a thoughtful and flavourful menu full of the most perfect hand-picked premium caviar eats.
False Creek: Executive Chef Sebastian Delgado has prepared a special feature appetizer ($29), Carabinero Tartar which consists of Spanish red king prawn marinated in leche de tigre, acevichado sauce and Northern Divine sturgeon caviar.
Ambleside: Executive Chef Jorge Kim has prepared a special feature Appetizer ($66) which consists of 6 kusshi oysters, 2g Northern Divine, 2g Ostera, 2g Da Vinci, cucumber, spicy daikon and spicy ponzu on the side.
The False Creek and Ambleside curated caviar selection will be available at both Ancora locations and consists of:
Northern Divineâ€™s ($200, 30g tin) Fraser River sturgeon caviar, ethically farm raised and organically fed in Sechelt on British Colmbiaâ€™s Sunshine Coast.
Osetra ($200, 30g tin) caviar is extremely flavourful, especially with a light dusting of salt to be fully appreciated. This caviar utilizes all the senses with perfect identical crisp grains as it presents an intense golden brown colour and a lasting taste of refined delight.
Da Vinci ($200, 30g tin) caviar is an Italian sturgeon species native to the Adriatic Sea. These sustainably raised sturgeon are slow-growing, maturing up to 14 years old and as a result, the caviar is mellow and fresh. Da Vinci Sturgeon Caviar has an intense, distinctive taste, especially smooth consistency, with a nutty and subtle brininess flavour.
Beluga ($600, 30g tin) sturgeon caviar from the Caspian Sea is a luxury commodity and the most highly prized caviars of any of the offerings. While being the softest caviar of all, itâ€™s gloriously shiny in a range of light grey to black colours.
Both Ancora locations are also offering a specially curated Caviar Tasting Series ($99) where guests can enjoy a serving of Northern Divine, Ostera and Da Vinci caviar, served with the classic accompaniments; egg yolk, egg white, crÃ¨me fraÃŽche, chives, shallots and buckwheat blinis.
