While on business in Winnipeg we were looking for a good local place to have dinner and the "Cookery" was recommended. We didn't have reservations and the restaurant was full so they sat us in the bar. This proved to be a great choice as it was quieter than the main dining room and had a relaxed feel. There was a Californian wine special that we enjoyed to the tune of a second bottle. Salads were had as starters and the beet salad was excellent. Mains in our group were limited to the tourtière and the pickerel. The tourtière had a great flavour but the portions were quite substantial and only one of the three that ordered it was able to finish it. The pickerel was good but the cornmeal crust was too hard and the fish slightly overlooked. I know that they focus on seasonal veg but would have appreciated a bit more than the excellent potatoes and pancetta. Next time in Winnipeg I would be happy to give it another try to test some of the other menu items.
