VIDEO: Pilot Coffee Roasters

I was recently on a foodiecation in Toronto where I went for a visit at the Pilot Coffee roasting plant. I love Dose‘s coffee here in Quebec City and it only serves Pilot’s coffee. Therefore, when I was in Toronto, I wanted to meet with the roasters who roast some of my favourite coffee beans. I went […]

REVIEW: Panache du Parc

The Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge is where I learned the basics of photography: aperture vs speed and light. It is one of the most magnificent parks in Quebec City to immortalise biodiversity, especially flowers. With its breathtaking view of the Saint-Lawrence river, the Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge is one of the most beautiful places for a picnic, […]

REVIEW: Le Mexicain

Le Mexicain is the most authentic Mexican experience you’ll find in Quebec City. Unfortunately, you’ll have to drive out to Charlesbourg to experience its flavours. Is it worth the drive you ask? Oh yes it is! Located at the back of a commercial building and facing a residential street, Le Mexicain is not easy to find. […]

Terroir: Charlevoix

I love Charlevoix. It’s located close enough to Quebec City to be considered a weekend getaway, and far enough to feel as though I am escaping from home. Every season, friends of mine plan an escape to Charlevoix. We usually rent a chalet at Le Genevrier and spend a weekend indulging in Charlevoix’s nature and […]

RECIPE: Black beer batter fish n’ chips

Cod is my favourite kind of fish. I am fortunate enough to have access to Gaspé cod a few times a year, because my father has a summer house in Cap-aux-Os. He drives from Gaspé to Montreal a few times a year and always makes a cod pit stop for me in Quebec City. He […]

TERROIR: Carnivore Club

I have no idea from whom I first heard about Toronto’s Carnivore Club, but all I remember is that the instant I heard about it, I ordered the box. And I had almost forgotten about it, that is until they sent me an e-mail advising me that my order was going to arrive this week. Carefully […]

TERROIR: Pure Légende eau-de-vie

I love Haida art, what it represents and its spiritual dimension. The Haida people originate from an island off the Northwest Coast of Canada. “Totemic soul art” are the words that I’ve always associated to this native form of art. It’s what I answer when asked about the meaning of the raven tattoo on my left […]

REVIEW: Laurie Raphaël’s sugar shack brunch

Last year, a few restaurants and caterers in Quebec City decided to take the urban shack route. Only one had managed to wow my palate: the Laurie Raphaël. This year, LR is flying solo in the “urban sugar shack” adventure. Did the competition thrown in the towel over the impressive culinary #CabaneLR experience? An innovative […]

Favourite fish stores in Quebec City

Do you buy seafood at the grocery store or at your local fish shop? Have you ever compared identical products bought from either place? Was there a difference in taste? In freshness? Was there a significant price difference? Do you like cod? If so, when was the last time you ate fresh cod? Where can […]

RECIPE: No egg chocolate chip cookies

I have a friend who recently found out she is allergic to eggs. Bummer, because she loves desserts, mayo and breakfast is her favourite meal. She came over this past weekend to watch the Superbowl and so I thought I’d try an egg-less chocolate chip cookie recipe. I’ve adapted a recipe from Ricardo, his chewy […]

RECIPE: Bella and Shiitake mushroom risotto

In 2015, Foodie in Quebec City will have more recipes, much more traveling and even more Quebec-made ingredients, products and restaurant reviews! The «more recipe» resolution begins NOW. Because baby, it’s cold outside and risotto warms my heart. I’ve also considered what I believe to be the perfect wine pairing for this recipe. Bella and Shiitake […]

PRESS TRIP: l’Auberge des Glacis

I spent seven weeks of my childhood in l’Islet, one week every year from the age of 7 to 14. During these weeks, I attended Camp Trois Saumons. I LOVED it. Best adventures of my childhood. As I write these words, I have flashes of canoeing, learning to start a fire, throwing myself in the […]
