Foraged Mushroom and Aggasiz Hazelnut Soup – Fairmont Waterfront
This soup has been a favorite with our guests in ARC since Chef Alessandro put it on the menu – with its rich creamy texture it isn’t hard to see (or taste) why. Our mushrooms are foraged for us on Vancouver Island while our culinary apprentices hand-picked the hazelnuts in nearby Agassiz – we like to think using local produce makes it taste better – come try it for yourself! www.arcdining.com

The spicy heat from the curry powder makes this wonderful and warming after a chilly day outside and the mango adds a cheerful and exotic twist.
