To celebrate the holiday season and The Pear Tree Restaurant’s anniversary, Chef Scott Jaeger has assembled a special five-course anniversary menu that features favourite dishes from the restaurant’s past 15 years.
The dinner begins with Pemberton Valley sunchoke foam, which is a warm soup made with locally grown jerusalem artichokes and crisp bacon. Following the soup, diners enjoy pan-seared rainbow trout with butternut squash, a course of smoked ham hock with pickled vegetables from a local Pemberton farm, and slow-roasted duck breast and confit leg from Fraser Valley. The four savoury courses come to a sweet finale with vanilla crème brûlée with poached okanagan pears.
Chef Jaeger sees no other option than to source his ingredients from local farmers. “We write our menus by what is available,” he notes with humility and respect for the earth. He draws inspiration from each seasonal yield, introducing new dishes to the menu about every two weeks. Through this ongoing adaptability he proves his culinary mastery, earning near-perfect food ratings from Zagat as well as the trust of under-ripe tomatoes.
