Dan Olson, chef and owner of Railtown Catering, lets us in on some of his best dinner-party-ready recipes, from honey-glazed ham to rhubarb crumble.
Vancouver-bred and French-trained chef Dan Olson started Railtown Catering with chef Tyler Day in 2012 and has been wow-ing Vancouverites ever since with delicious catering and delivery services. We managed to get five spring-time favourite recipes from Dan and the team at Railtown Catering that are perfect for spring get-togethers.
Nothing says spring like fresh vegetables and flavours. This creamy cucumber salad has a delicious touch of dill and is the perfect accompaniment for any main course.
Chef Dan Olson on how to cook a ham with the perfect crunchy crust-to-juicy meat ratio. With a sweet crust and juicy interior everybody will be begging for seconds.
Long marinades give the best flavours, and this lamb leg is no exception. Marinated overnight in lemon, rosemary and dijon mustard and topped with a crunchy breadcrumb crust, this is the perfect recipe to wow your guests.
Everybody loves potatoes and cheese, and we love this cheesy potato concoction made with creamy gruyère cheese and baked to golden perfection.
The combination of the tart rhubarb, the cinnamon it’s mixed with, and the sweet crumble topping this dessert is the perfect final note in a menu full of stars.
