Weekly Lunch Pick: the $38 Trust the Chef prix fixe at Didier

Weekly Lunch Pick: the $38 Trust the Chef prix fixe at Didier

Didier Leroy, English Canada’s first Maître Cuisinier de France, offers one of Toronto’s more curious lunch experiences: a three-course mystery menu in which the entire table must participate. On this sunny afternoon, our trust in the chef pays off handsomely. A pair of baked eggs coddled with black truffles and foie gras arrive in an irresistibly rich madeira sauce. Next, Atlantic salmon roulade, kissed with briny sturgeon caviar, arrives on a bed of sweet braised leeks and puréed potatoes. The meal finishes with a crème brûlée that’s creamy cool, with hints of Tahitian vanilla and a thick, golden sugar crust.

The time: 68 minutes.

The cost: $61 including tax, tip and a bottle of sparkling water ($7).

Didier, 1496 Yonge St. (at St. Clair Ave. W.), 416-925-8588, restaurantdidier.com.
