Written By Sponsored Content Storehouse Aug 27, 2019 Boom + Batten SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestBoom + Batten is a place to celebrate, create, indulge, enjoy, and relax. This new bar, café, and restaurant with forno oven and open kitchen has, bar none, the best view of Victoria’s Inner Harbour; you are right on the water.Chef de Cuisine Dion Ouellet, Executive Chef Sam Harris, and Pastry Chef Dominique LaurencelleThe executive culinary team at Boom + Batten is composed of executive chef Sam Harris, pastry chef Dominique Laurencelle, and chef de cuisine Dion Ouellet.Executive chef Sam Harris is no stranger to launches; he was at the helm of both the award-winning Agrius and The Courtenay Room when they opened. Focused on “ingredient-forward flavour clarity and irreducible complexity,” he stresses that Boom + Batten’s food will find its stride in local fare that reflects not only the sea but also the wealth of flavours we enjoy on the island.“I’m excited to share old family recipes, like jambusters, which are Manitoba’s jelly doughnuts, says Chef Laurencelle. “We’ll make them from scratch with in-house jam. Fresh, fluffy, and sweet. We’ll serve them for happy hour.” Her warmth, zeal, and evident passion for both the traditionally fancy and the deliciously down-home bodes well for Victoria dessert and pastry lovers.Chef de cuisine Dion Ouellet’s role at Boom + Batten is day-to-day operations and menu development with executive chef Sam Harris. Boom + Batten will also be “a place where young cooks come to learn and where we can cultivate the talent through an in-house apprenticeship program and provide dining experiences to remember and celebrate here in Victoria,” explains Ouellet.Boom + Batten feels much more “cosmopolitan casual” than Victoria, and has set the stage for chill and delicious in an understated yet opulent venue.Photo Credit: Lillie Louise MajorHours:Mon – Fri: 11 am – 11 pm Sat – Sun: 11 am – 11 pm Brunch: 9 am – 2 pm Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays Cafe: Mon – Sun 7:30 am – 5 pm2 Paul Kane Pl Victoria, BC V9A 7J8250-940-5850 firstname.lastname@example.org SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Sponsored Content ...
