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 adventuress of my childhood. As I write these words, I have flashes of canoeing, learning to start a fire, throwing myself in the […]

REVIEW: Champlain

The Château Frontenac: Quebec City’s most prestigious symbol. Le Château has always been a hotel with a highly regarded restaurant, a famous Chef, splendid ballrooms and luxurious rooms. Le Château was the lifestyle of the rich and famous, the lieu of residence of the upper class and glamorous of this world. To me, le Château […]

REVIEW: Dose Coffee Bar

Ever since Dose bar à café has opened its doors, I have The Eagles stuck in my head. There’s a new kid in town. Ok, maybe not literally, but you get it right? Dose is a new kid that’s causing a stir in Quebec City. You know the song. It goes… There’s talk on the […]

REVIEW: Les Sales Gosses

Restaurants come and go at an incredible rate in Quebec City. Within the last year, a minimum of five new restaurants have opened. Among these Les Sales Gosses, a bistro that prides itself on a bad boy image, measures its maleness with skulls and, well, a dirty, dirty name. Among its “masculine” menu, lamb testicles […]

REVIEW: Quebec City’s Best Poutines

Poutine : a highly caloric combination of fries, cheese and gravy. Its Quebec’s official comfort food. Every québécois of every génération has an opinion about poutine. Its origins are debated (Victoriaville or Drummondville, huh?), its ingredients questioned (It’s a heart attack on a plate !?!) and always part of drunken midnight adventures. But, above all pleasures […]

REVIEW: iX pour Bistro

Limoilou is one of Quebec’s most popular neighbourhoods for locavore enthusiasts. Everything one needs is at walking distance: butcher, bakeries, cheese, chocolates, pastries and coffee. It even has its own farmer’s market. Limoilou is home to a unique array of artists and their workshop: ceramists, painters, musicians and jewelers, lots of jewelers. And after a […]

FOOD FEST: Cuisinez St-Roch 2. A tasteful event

How wonderful was this second edition of Cuisinez St-Roch? Magnificent! The day started off with uncertain temperature and rain showers. By the time we had decided to leave, somewhere around 1pm, the rain was falling down pretty hard at my place. I live a 20 km drive from downtown and strangely enough, even for a […]

RECIPE: The best flu medicine

I have the flu. I haven’t been sick in a very long time, so this feels like a truck ran me over. My sinus are congested, my throat is itchy, my head aches and I have a bit of a fever. But, I’m now starting to sweat out the flu, because I’ve put together a little […]

REVIEW: Le Saint-Amour

There are little culinary moments that I’ve lived that bring an immediate smile to my face. The Saint-Amour is now part of these moments. I don’t know much yet about haute cuisine, but I know that my Saint-Amour experience was a grandiose moment. Lunch is the best deal in gastronomic restaurants like this one. IF they […]

The Roulotte

REVIEW: La Roulotte du Coin

I love duck; it’s my favourite kind of meat. There’s something about the taste and texture that charms me every time. Not too strong of a taste, but enough to stand out with heavier sauces. When cooked slowly, duck become grandiose and its high protein/low-fat meat breaks down perfectly in a sandwich or salad. My […]
