Revue : restaurant La Planque

C’est par une belle journée de tempête de neige que Maude, ma complice et coblogueuse, a découvert le restaurant La Planque situé dans le quartier Limoilou. Elle aurait aimé y apercevoir l’un des propriétaires, Guillaume Saint-Pierre, gagnant de l’édition 2011 de l’émission Les Chefs! à Radio-Canada. Mais ce souhait ne s’est pas concrétisé. Ses deux […]

pot de farine

Un peu, beaucoup de farine!

40 kilos de farine?!? 20 kilos de farine non-blanchie et 20 kilos de farine de blé entier.  C’est ce que j’achète une fois par année.  Pourquoi?  Parce que c’est de la farine bio (de la Meunerie Milanaise) et que j’économise énormément en achetant en gros format, plus de 20$ par sac! Comme je cuisine beaucoup, […]

RIP Coop des Grands Rangs and La Luncheonette

Less than two years after its opening, la Coop des Grands Rangs is going out of business. Poor financial management and cost overruns are to blame. “This closure has nothing to do with a disinterest in our terroir,” says Mathieu Brisson Chef and co-owner of Le Clocher Penché who managed La Luncheonette, the grilled-cheese sandwich […]

Beef “Bourguinness” Individual Pot Pie 吉尼斯迷你燉牛肉派

I’m not so much of a beef person, but every once in a while, I really love a good classic such as Beef Bourguignon (especially on cold days like we have here in Quebec!). Since St. Patrick’s Day is here, I thought I’d play around a little and mix this French classic with some other […]

Cranberry Heart Swirl Cheesecake 蔓越莓愛心乳酪蛋糕

All right, I have to confess: the truth behind this recipe is that I bought way too many cranberries during the Christmas season (Yes, I let my indulgent side take over!), but who can resist all those fresh, beautiful locally grown cranberries from Marché du Vieux Port?! (See photo below) Besides, cranberries freeze well. When […]

Authentic Japanese cuisine  has a place of honour in the heart of Hosaka brothers, Yûjin, Jino and Louis.
