Food

One bite of the food at Blanchards Beach Shack and you will be surprised to learn that Melinda Blanchard, owner and head chef, is self taught. What appears on the menu as a typical entree will arrive at the table in a bed of fresh shiitake mushrooms, completely transforming the meal into a work of art. The food is simple, but flavorful. Chef Melinda's specialities include lobster cakes with mixed greens and a tomato-flavoured tartar sauce, or the famous Anguilla lobster grilled with a honey glaze or a Cajun spicy sauce. Desserts such as cracked coconut with coconut ice cream accompanied by a rum-custard sauce in a chocolate-crusted shell are sure to leave you truly satisfied.
