Your World Your Vision Celebration Dinner @ Milestones

Hi Everyone.

Stephanie here!

Community Composters and Ernst & Young!

Recently I had a celebration dinner with some people from Ernst & Young to celebrate my team’s (Community Composters!) success with the Your World Your Vision Competition. I also blogged about the YWYV competition in more detail here! Ernst & Young’s Your World Your Vision Competition 2011.

Unfortunately we didn’t win the top prize of $10,000 but we did however get to eat dinner at Milestones on Robson St. with our Ernst & Young’s competition  advisors and some other great people from Ernst & Young!

Creole Papardelle!

Now about the food! I’ve been to Milestones before and yes, it is a chain restaurant so there were some expectations. Generally, if food is executed well, ingredients are fresh and the service is more than acceptable, I don’t really care if it is a chain restaurant or a one-one-its-own restaurant.

We ordered a lot of dishes, but I only ate what was on my plate, and tried a few of the appetizers.  That being said, I can only really comment on the creole papardelle. The pasta was al dente, but I would say the flavour of the pasta sauce was a bit one-dimensional, and I felt it should have been more spicy, if it was creole.   It was good, but not outstanding. I’m a bit biased when I say this, but I think my mom can make the same thing.

For other’s I can say that I was really impressed with the presentation (especially the ravioli)! I’ve been to Milestones before and the presentation wasn’t as good as the last time when I went.

There are lots of pictures, so get ready!!! I’m not too sure of the exact names of what everyone ordered, so here are the pictures just for enjoyment!
