In a nutshell, that’s really all that needs to be said. We had dinner last night at Aura at Nita Lake Lodge (Whistler Creekside) and the food is magnificent. I don’t think I even have the vocabulary to properly describe the creations that Executive Chef Tim Cuff and Chef Owen Foster create. They are nothing short of sublime.
We had the five-course tasting menu. I would love to describe each dish in the same level of detail and with the same passion that our wonderful server Veronique, who has also worked as a chef, was able to convey. Sadly, I don’t know where to even start. Everything from the amuse bouche to the dessert was bursting with flavour. The texture of each dish was intricately balanced and meticulously presented. Making the experience even more enjoyable was knowing that the chefs use local, organic ingredients whenever possible. Although local is an understatement as the chefs cultivate their own rooftop garden that has approximately 30 herbs and 40 vegetables.
For those who have yet to experience Aura at Nita Lake Lodge, I strongly suggest you make the journey to Whistler Creekside to check it out!
