We were visiting my sister- and brother-in-law near Cobourg, Ontario; which by the way, is a great place to visit. It’s located on the north shore of Lake Ontario about an hour north of Toronto. We had been doing some work around the house, so on our last night there we decided to try a local restaurant nearby called Pitchers Place. It’s a great little restaurant located at Gores Landing near Rice Lake and it is a real gem! If you’re in this area definitely give Pitchers Place a try.
One of their house specialties is the Stuffed Eggplant. I decided to try that and my brother-in-law opted for the fresh House Smoked Fish Cakes. Both entrees were outstanding – nice presentations and very well prepared. The eggplant was stuffed with roasted apple, sweet potato, walnuts, rice and topped off with a minted yogurt sauce. I enjoyed it very much.
I got to taste the fish cakes that my brother-in-law ordered and they were delicious. The fish cakes were served with sauteed Kale and a roasted red pepper sauce. They were delightful – very light and tasty.
I don’t usually eat dessert, but I couldn’t help myself this time, because they had so many freshly made treats. I selected the homemade blueberry pie. WOW – fresh blueberries, homemade crust, delicious whipped cream topping! I love fruit pies, especially blueberry and this was one of the best I’ve ever had (sorry mom!).
If you get the chance to visit the Cobourg area, be sure to give Pitchers Place a try. You’ll be glad you did. Pitchers Place is open for lunch and dinner. They are closed on Tuesdays.Pitchers Place 8642 Lander Road Gores Landing, Ontario K0K 2E0 Telephone: 905-342-2832 Website: http://pitchersplace.ca
