Fresh Mountain Air Builds an Appetite

The Juniper Hotel and Bistro was recently recommended by Globe and Mail journalist, Sarah MacWhirter Juniper embodies the essence of the Rockies with its bird's-eye perch above the highway and its natural materials and minimalist design inside.”

 “And nothing builds the appetite like fresh mountain air. Back at the lodge, I wanted to sample everything the Juniper Bistro offers. We especially liked the roasted duck breast with parsnip purée, duck crackling, roasted carrots and duck confit with star anise scented jus. And the braised bison ribs. And the pan-seared Arctic char. And the duck fat fried frites…”  Sarah MacWhirter, Globe & Mail

 “The Cross Roads cuisine at the Juniper Bistro is designed to reflect the area's heritage. Fully 80 per cent of the food served comes from regional sources, and the restaurant has been approved by Ocean Wise, the Vancouver Aquarium's restaurant conservation program."  Sarah MacWhirter, Globe & Mail

Peruse Juniper Bistro Menus

 

 

 


November is Prime Time for Skating

The current skating conditions are superb!  November is commonly prime time for skating as lakes freeze to a smooth finish with little to no snow. 
 
Locals and visitors to Banff National Park are skating on Vermilion Lakes and on Johnson Lake.  The ice is smooth and blue, reflecting clear skies and sunshine. 
 
The forecast is clear with a chance of light precipitation.  Good freezing temperatures each night makes for safe ice.   
 
The hospitality team at the Juniper would be pleased to arrange skate rentals from our partner who has about 50 pairs of hockey skates of varying sizes, from grade school childrens' sizes to adults.
 
It’s an activity steeped in canadiana, a surreal experience you will never forget.

A Recipe for Winter Comfort

As the temperature outside drops, cozy comfort foods like Butternut Squash Soup provide warmth for the season. One of the all-stars of winter comfort food, the squash is a staple this time of year. Fresh from the garden or at your local grocer’s it can be transformed into many dishes - sweet or savoury. The rich and nutty flavour pairs beautifully with sweet maple syrup and rum in our take on this classic winter soup recipe. With the cool days upon us and many more to come we love the simplicity of soup and its power to make mealtime extra cozy. 

 

 We hope you will enjoy this recipe in your home - Butternut Squash Soup with Spiced Rum and Maple Syrup
