DINING – GIFT CERTIFICATES – RECIPES
Many things have changed since our restaurant served it’s first meal but some things remain – quality, flavour and value. Since 1988, owner Mary Cowan’s signature take on home cooked classics have laid the foundation for today’s favs from the kitchen. Chef Joanne Edwards has taken the lead in the Cove kitchen. Her full flavoured, hearty dishes are inspired from her love of international cuisine with a comfort twist.
The restaurant has a comfortable feel with a welcoming ambiance and offers a style of food for many tastes.
In the warm months, dine on our patio surrounded by lush gardens, shady trees and enjoy fine outdoor entertainment on select days.
We offer signature evenings including Seasonal Wine Dinners, Wednesday Wings ‘n Tunes/Rack ‘n Tunes Nights, legendary Saturday Night Roast Beef Buffets and various holiday menus. Call us anytime 1.888.268.3466 and discuss your special event with Maureen. We look forward to hosting you.

Summer Peach and Corn Salsa
by Chef Joanne Edwards
4-5 fresh peaches diced
2 cobs fresh corn, husked and corn cut off the cob
1 med red onion finely chopped
1 red bell pepper finely chopped
1 jalapeño seeded and diced
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 fresh mint rough chop
1/2 English cucumber chopped
2 tsp toasted cumin ground
1 cup black beans rinsed and drained
Juice and zest of 2 medium oranges
Juice and zest of 2 limes
Salt to taste
Easy recipe, just a lot of chopping.
Everything goes into a large bowl with room for tossing. Just go easy on the salt may not need any.
If concerned about the heat of the jalapeño put it in at the end or can serve it on the side for those who like heat.
Will last in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Can always refresh it with mint or some chopped cilantro which you could replace the mint altogether with if you like.
Tequila lime Chicken
by Chef Joanne Edwards
8-10 Chicken thighs
1/3 cup white Tequila
Zest and juice of 2 limes
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp fresh chopped garlic
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Put the chicken thighs in a large sealable bag and set aside
Whisk all the other ingredients together in a bowl. Pour 3/4 of the tequila mixture reserving the extra 1/4 cup for cooking.
Move the chicken around in the bag so it all gets coated with the marinade. Seal and refrigerate for 6 hours or up to 2 days. Every one and awhile flip the bag around to even out the marinade on the chicken.
When ready to cook preheat oven to 375^F. In a nonstick pan heat to med-high and add 1 tbsp sunflower oil. When hot carefully place the thighs skin side down in the pan and let fry for about 5 min the flip and transfer to a baking dish. Should do this in a couple of batches to give room to the chicken. Chicken should have a nice golden brown colour in it.
Bake in oven for 15 min then remove from oven and pour the remaining 1/4 cup of marinade over the chicken. Bake for another 10-15 minutes until chicken is done.
Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro and serve.
