In Montréal, we eat well. The recipe? A successful blend of influences! First we took a solid base of French cooking, then we added a generous helping of knowledge gleaned from the Aboriginals and different cultural communities, we mixed it all together and voilà! The result is modern Québec cuisine, enhanced by the use of quality regional products. A new generation of inspired chefs invites you to sample its menus—some of which are among the continent’s finest. The first inhabitants of Québec—for the most part peasant farmers—prepared hearty meals to help them face the harshness of everyday life. A style of home cooking, based on the French tradition, deve-loped over the centuries and feature local fish, game, fruits and vegetables. Tourtière, cipaille (a layered meat pie), baked beans, pork roast, cretons (a kind of pork pâté), sugar pie and buckwheat pancakes are just a few examples of these traditional dishes. While some of these remain everyday fare, others are served on special occasions like big family dinners during the Holiday Season. Traditional recipes are adapted to reflect today’s tastes by chefs at major restaurants, which also offer a large selection of fine Québec products, such as foie gras, magret de canard (duck cutlet), caviar de corrégone and ice wine. These regional products give Québec cooking its own identity, much to the delight of gourmets! Looking for something exotic? You’ll find ethnic cuisine from the four corners of the world in Montréal, where you can sample sushi, Portuguese tapas, Thai dishes, Lebanese specialties … and much more! The rich mosaic of international flavours offered in restaurants bears witness to the diversity of cultures that make up the Montréal of today.
