Last Thursday, Carla, Matt and I went to the Culinaire food festival and literally pigged out. The one dish that stood out above all was Vis a Vis’ smoked pork belly rillette on an apple crisp (shown bellow).
On Monday, Mom, Carla and I went to the Vis a Vis restaurant to see what else they had to offer.
Celebration was in the air, I had just passed my driving test with flying colours, it was day one of Carla’s week off and mom, well she’s retired and gets to have fun full-time.

apple and blue cheese, rye crostini, open face.
