The Weisswurst Dog at Culina Millcreek

We may be a long way from Germany but that doesn’t mean that we can’t indulge along with the rest of Bavaria during one of the biggest beer (and pork consuming) festivals in the world. All this month chef Steven Furgiuele at Culina Millcreek is featuring Passion for Pork Oktoberfest inspired dishes on his menu.

The Weisswurst Dog, which is featured above, is a house-made German style emulsified sausage flavoured with nutmeg, parsley & lemon zest served with our Wild Rose Velvet Fog mustard; house sauerkraut & Bonjour Bakery baguette.

Chef Furgiuele will have more sausages featured on weekends, all with a Germanic/Austrian flavour. The dogs will also be available at their sister wine bar next door, BIBO.

I had the pleasure of dining at Culina Millcreek a few weeks ago and indulged in the Taster Plate which featured house made chorizo and lomo along with pickled veggies and chutneys that were absolutely delicious. Chef Furgiuele is certainly having fun playing with new flavours and experimenting with curing with not only pork but a variety of locally sourced meats.
