The Pear Tree

The Vancouver Bailliage began the 2014 fall season with an event at the award winning Pear Tree, restaurant of our Vice-Conseiller Culinaire and Executive Chef Scott Jaeger. The event showcased the inspired creativity of Chef Jaeger with canapés such as Kusshi Oysters with Pear Mignonette and “Chicken and Waffle with Maple Parsnip” followed by five unique courses featuring Chilled Dungeness Crab with Stoney Paradise Tomato, Fresh Smoked Steelhead Belly with Celeriac Potato Salad, Duck Confit with Quince glaze and Foie Gras,Chargrilled Loin of Fallow Deer and Vanilla poached Okanagan Pears, “Tree Cake” and Panna Cotta all paired with wines from the Bailliage cellar.
This event marked the Vancouver Bailliage’s inaugural “scholarship dinner” in support of our scholarship and Bursary program. This was a timely recognition of Chef Jaeger’s recent recognition as “Mentor of the Year” by the culinary industry.
