Pour’s Sweet Potato Salad

By Anna Faller | Oct. 2, 2021

Prep your palettes, cold-weather comrades! Autumn is officially on the menu at Petoskey’s Pour Kitchen & Bar, and we can’t wait to take a taste. Launched in August 2016 and helmed by general manager and sommelier Todd Chinnock, in partnership with executive chef Colin Campbell, Pour’s seasonally rotating menus often combine comfort food and classic technique with a distinctive Eastern Asian twist.

“There are a lot of exciting flavors and complexity that I really enjoy,” says Campbell. And while Pour’s autumn offerings are no exception, there’s one addition in particular that already has this duo drooling. Enter the Sweet Potato Salad. A surefire favorite for vegan diners, this sultry starter features a base of caramelly-perfect sweet potatoes.

Cooked three times and tossed in savory miso-barbeque, these taters are topped with a sweet autumn salad of julienned carrot, mint, cilantro, and organic pea shoots. Dressed with house coconut vinaigrette and finished with peanuts, spikes of lime, and a kick of chili oil, this sassy salad is a seasonal must. Find it at Pour Kitchen & Bar, 422 E Mitchell St., Petoskey. (231) 881-9800,
