Dining at Ontario's Deerhurst Resort

I recently had the good fortune to be invited to the Muskoka NorthWords Literary Festival in Huntsville, Ontario, and was asked to perform some spoken word at a gala dinner at the gorgeous Deerhurst Resort.
This sprawling hotel and event centre is truly awe-inspiring, but the art and design inside Deerhurst is for another post. Now, I just want to share with the fine dining I enjoyed courtesy of its Eclipse restaurant.
First, I was treated to a delicious and not-too-salty butternut squash soup, light enough to get my palate kicking. I almost asked for seconds before realizing the main course would be very filling.
The entree was bacon-wrapped steak sided with fluffy mashed potatoes and sparse veggies. The mashed 'taters were great, but not spectacular, although the main was mouth-watering: the bacon hugged the steak without being too overwhelming, and I found the steak to be cooked medium-rare, my perfect setting. Very juicy and nicely spiced. Thing is, I could only manage to eat one and a half of the round steaks, I was that full.
I also knew dessert was on its way. A light chocolate mousse topped with whipped cream and strawberries added the perfect sweet note to end this spectacular dinner. I was happy to enjoy a lighter dessert than something heavy, like pie or cake.

Can't say enough good things about the food at Deerhurst, so if anyone has a chance to travel north to Huntsville for a weekend, be sure to stop at Eclipse for some spectacular dining.
