maritime-inspired recipes

Our Halifax Restaurant is home to a talented & creative culinary team. Our local menus are inspired by many traditional Atlantic cuisine dishes with twists of international flair. Here are a few of our most requested Nova Scotia recipes from our local & fresh menus.

Elemental Burger

The Elements burger blend from Getaway Meat Mongers is the starting point for our great burgers.  A combination of chuck, short rib and 6 week aged round comes wrapped in a brioche bun from Julienne’s Bakery and smothered in Naked Pickle Ketchup.

Brioche in a Can

The idea of baking brioche in a can is adapted from the traditional Acadian ‘Spoon Bread.’  For ours, a small sprig of rosemary delivers a gentle aroma from the inside out.

Red Wine Braised Cabbage

Nothing prepares you for a winter’s night like braising food in red wine.  This cabbage takes about an hour to cook so be sure to put it in the oven well before you plan on eating it.

Pumpkin Dressing

The heartiness of spinach makes a great pairing for warm vinaigrettes.  This fall salad makes use of cold pressed pumpkin seed oil from Fox Mill as well as the seeds from inside your Jack-o-lantern.

Rosti Potato

At elements on hollis, we serve our rosti potato with our beef tenderloin dish but you can eat them with just about anything.  They go great with breakfast and no harm would come from adding a little grated apple or cheese to the mix.

Confit Vegetables

Confit is a preservation method that’s almost as old as salting and comes from the French word confire, which means ‘to preserve’ food. Confit is cooked and held in fat to extend its shelf life and intensify its flavor.

Sweet Potato Puree

It’s really fantastic when you don’t need to go through a lot of effort to yield delicious results.  This recipe makes a great side to those holiday dinners.
