Continuing the theme of delicate citrus and refreshing orange, the main this morning was an orange french toast served with rustic thick cut bacon! The fresh toast was fluffy and stand alone gave off a delicate orange flavor that reminds me of the sweet freshness of orange blossoms. On the side however, was maple syrup and a very special sauce created by Jay; orange grand marnier butter. Made for his wife, Carol, who loves Crepe Suzette, this sauce is an entirely splendid compliment to her french toast. At Carol's suggestion I blended both it and the maple syrup onto my french toast and the harmony of flavors was absolutely luscious! Sweet, a touch savory and just downright yummy, I doubt I'll ever be able to eat french toast any other way! The smoky thick-cut bacon was just about the best way I've ever eaten this trendy little breakfast meat. Three slices of the perfectly cooked bacon were on my plate and I could have sneaked into the kitchen to get even more! It's just the kind of bacon that a Canadian girl like me can't get enough of.
And so, another terrifically and locally sourced gourmet breakfast has been absolutely adored here at the Elmwood! Stay tuned to read more about my suite later on today!
