Executive Chef Jiju Paul and his culinary team at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald have been making up for all that lost dining out time during the pandemic with a new summer patio menu that will have your mouth watering. Since restrictions eased on July 1, 2021, Edmonton’s best patio has been packed with hotel guests and local diners looking for a great bite of BBQ to enjoy with that stunning view of the city’s river valley.
Chef Paul invited me to check out his new Confederate Lounge & patio all day BBQ summer menu packed with Alberta Pork, specifically the Taste of Alberta Barbeque Kitchen Board.
The Taste of Alberta Barbeque Kitchen Board includes:
smoked pork ribs, chorizo sausage, pulled pork, smoked brisket, cheddar and jalapeno cornbread, grilled corn, and BBQ spiced fries for $75.
The sweet and savoury smell of BBQ is hard to ignore on the Mac patio as the culinary team has two tents set up in the garden for immediate temptation and BBQ gratification. While the Taste of Alberta BBQ kitchen board is ideal for sharing, all of the Alberta pork items can be ordered individually.
