The Carillon: Chef’s Tasting Menu

I had the incredible honor and pleasure to dine at The Carillon and be treated to their Chef’s Tasting Menu by Chef Dan and their team. I can’t believe I’ve never visited their amazing restaurant before because I was blown away by everything they made. Course’s 5 and 8 were my absolute favourites, but I enjoyed each and every one of them! The way the flavors, textures, and colors blended together harmoniously is a thing of art.
