Nothing like a really fancy breakfast, right? Not long ago, downtown Saskatoon charcuterie/cocktail joint Flint started doing a daily gourmet breakfast under the name Poached, and so while blowing government grant money on tour this winter my band hit it up for some very fine hangover dining.
I had the crepe filled with prosciutto, blue and Emmantal cheeses, shallots and pears. I adore savoury crepes and this one was absolutely divine, with the sweet (but still slightly crunchy) pear balancing the rich cheeses and cured meat. The crepe itself is such a perfect vessel for different flavours, being light, chewy and versatile enough for sweet and savoury fillings. I’ll eat them for pretty well any meal of the day. These crepes were cooked just right, with crispy brown ends on an otherwise soft and moist pancake.
We garnished our plates with some potato croquettes and bacon-wrapped pecans. An of course a table full of caesars. Poached certainly isn’t the cheapest place to eat, but if you’re in town and are looking for something really refined and delicious for brunch, check this place out.
