NLC Enjoy - Fall • Winter 2023

In 2022, came the opportunity Chef Josh had been working toward when he opened Par 70, his very own restaurant. Par 70 by Chef Josh is a full service restaurant located at the scenic Gander Golf Club. This restaurant is open to everyone, not just members of the Golf Club, and operates from April to December. In the first year alone, Par 70 served three thousand orders of one special burger that has become somewhat famous with the local community – the Blueberry Bacon Burger. The combination of the 100% pure ground beef patties (with no additives), melted Havarti cheese, pickled red onions, Blueberry BBQ sauce, basil aioli, arugula all on a toasted brioche bun, has made this one of the most sought after bites in central Newfoundland. Chef Josh was kind enough to share the key ingredients that make his signature burger and fries so delicious – the basil aioli and of course, the Blueberry BBQ sauce.

Ruffino’s Chianti from Tuscany is primarily sangiovese with the remainder of the blend made up of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Sangiovese is the perfect varietal to pair alongside a juicy burger, with neither component overpowering the other. This wine checks all of the sangiovese boxes – high mouth-watering acidity, well integrated medium+ tannins and lovely aromas and flavours of cherry, plum and spice. While the wine provides an ideal foil to the beef patties, it will also stand up nicely to the blueberry BBQ sauce and the havarti cheese.
