Monday July 1st is Canada Day and to celebrate the team behind Canada Day International has teamed up with Shuttlecock-Inc for an elegant one-off event in the capital’s iconic Trafalgar Square. And for one day only the square will play host to Canadian-inspired pop-up restaurant, Vieux-Québec.
Shuttlecock-Inc was also behind the sell-out Mile High, a series of innovative pop-ups inspired by the golden age of air travel and this time, Mile High chef, Ollie Templeton and Canadian chef, Marc St Jacques will be serving up a range of dishes infused with the taste of Canada throughout the day.
Breakfast is all about Butterscotch pancakes with maple syrup, crème fraiche and streaky bacon and lunch is a mouth-watering barbecue of Beef burgers with cabbage and parsley slaw, Pulled pork shoulder and Vegetarian lentil burgers.
Dinner ups the ante with a three course sit-down meal featuring Grilled lobster, asparagus, confit new seasons garlic and fried potato cake to start, followed by Hay-roasted pork belly with braised Saskatchewan lentils, roasted cherry tomatoes and wilted spinach as the main course, and Smoked maple and bourbon ice cream for dessert.
Guests will dine to the accompaniment of live music acts amidst a space complete with colourful murals, blooming flower boxes, café-style tables and chairs.
