La Pentola Introduces New Summer Menus and Cocktail List
As the summer sun heats up it brings sunshine to the city and a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables to La Pentola’s kitchen door with daily deliveries of fresh juicy fruits, summer squash and beautiful beets. La Pentola introduces a range of lighter dishes that complement the warmer summer season and an expanded cocktail list will be appearing at the bar with one of the widest list of digestifs in Western Canada.
Pastry Chef Matt Wilson is sweetening things up for the summertime with fresh new desserts such as lemon balm mousse with strawberry essence and prosecco; dark chocolate ganache with prickly pear, licorice root sorbetto and nasturtium; cherries with pistachios, dark chocolate and grappa; and fresh raspberries with hazelnuts, black sesame and sorrel.
Echoing the kitchen’s ethos of combining fun with flavour, La Pentola’s comprehensive summer cocktail menu is focused on Italian bitters, fresh fruits, and housemade liqueurs. The new menu has been expanded to feature over 40 Italian, French, Argentine, and German digestifs – one of the widest selections in Western Canada.
The new menu will feature all of the restaurant’s spirits and amari, as well as classic cocktails and punches, bottled cocktails and weekly special features. Martin has come up with more creative cocktails to supplement the menu such as a housemade limoncello carefully crafted with the freshest fruits, and old-time sodas carbonated and bottled in-house.
