Do you remember Valentine’s Day 2014? If you’re a fan of the Netflix series House of Cards you definitely do, because the 2nd season was released on Valentine’s Day! That’s when my partner and I ordered our first gourmet Valentine’s Day meal to go. Gourmet catering + binge watching House of Cards = best Valentine’s day EVER!
This year, we’ve decided to do exactly the same thing! The number of restaurants and catering companies who offer gourmet meals for Valentine’s Day in Quebec City have tripled since. We looked at all our options and have come up with our list of favourite Valentine’s Day catering menus in Quebec City. But we haven’t yet decided.
Which one should we choose?
