If humankind had never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Taste the fruits of culinary creativity with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of fine dining at dinner at Harwood's Dining Room, located inside Temple Gardens Mineral Spa Resort in Moose Jaw.
Harwood's Dining Room's seasoned chef Keith McMeekin concocts fresh, gourmet dishes using healthy ingredients culled from local prairie farmers. Diners can initiate meals with lobster corn dogs served with ale-and-grainy-mustard sauce ($10) or launch panko-breaded torpedo shrimp ($10) full steam ahead toward savoury cocktail-sauce seas. The kitchen's certified Angus rib eye arrives steeped in wild mushroom au jus and complemented by demi-glazed fingerling potatoes ($32) grown by farmers wearing full-length opera gloves to ensure refined flavours. Meanwhile, the Orange Crepes Neptune combine Dungeness-crab cream cheese with asparagus and sautéed shrimp ($24), and the rack of lamb bears a mint-pesto rub and balsamic cream sauce ($34). Hardwood's restaurant serves its edibles from inside Temple Gardens Mineral Spa Resort, whose mineral-rich geothermic waters soothe guests and serenity-seeking rubber duckies alike.
