Culinary Delights

Reford Gardens (Les Jardins de Métis) have developed a new line of specialty products using some of the flowers that have subtle flavours and unusual tastes. Selected from among our extensive collection of interesting and unusual plants, each one is created with plants from our gardens, such as daylilies and crabapples or enhanced with flavours from our herb or picking garden. These gourmet products are a wonderful way to remember your visit to the gardens and an ideal gift for a gourmand or a foodie.

At the heart of the gardens is Estevan Lodge, where chef Frédérick Boucher and his team prepare each product with care. These culinary delights are made from produce of the best quality, such as unpasteurized honey vinegar, organic wine vinegar and organic sugar cane. Much of the wild produce is picked fresh by Gaspésie Sauvage, a small family business based in Douglastown in the Gaspé Peninsula, whose specialty is harvesting native edible plants from the local forest, such as mushrooms and wild berries.

Reford Gardens line of culinary delights includes two spreads, three pickles and three jellies. For breakfast, try one of the spreads on your croissant or with cheese and pancakes. The pickles add a special flavor to your salads or sandwiches in addition to providing a colourful garnish to a plate of smoked fish. The jellies are an excellent companion to a roast of lamb, game or poultry as well as enhancing the flavor of many local cheeses.

Treat yourself and savour one of our culinary delights. Reford Gardens - a garden for every taste.
