Chris is correct, I am in Quebec. I apologize in advance for any spelling errors – I am on a Quebecois computer and the spell check is in french.
We left Montreal yesterday after visiting a number of great restaurants and brewpubs. I will fill you all in when I get back, but so far the best beer experience was at Dieu du Ciel, the worst was at Brutopia, don’t go there, terrible beer! This province in general, is a solid beer destination.
Sadly I could not get a table at Au Pied De Cochon, but I have eaten fois gras, Martin Picard’s favorite ingredient.
We are now in Quebec City and have plans to eat as much raw milk cheese as possible.
If you were wondering why Erik hasn’t been posting much, and you probably were, it’s because he is on vacation in Quebec. What’s he doing there you ask? I hope he’s collecting beer to bring back for me, but he’s more likely enjoying smoked meat and poutine, as well as putting the emPHAsis on the wrong syLLAbles like a French Canadian. He mentioned a trip to Martin Picard’s (The Wild Chef) restaurant Au Pied de Cochon as well as many other culinary adventures. He also planned to visit a few of Montreal and Quebec’s wonderful craft breweries, specifically Dieu du Ciel. I imagine he’ll have a few posts to share with us of his adventure when he gets back. It is with insane jealousy and anticipation that I await his return, which I’m hoping will include a few treats to share with me.
