The lively and dramatic Marietta was our guide on a food tour we took of Quebec City. She pointed out lots of interesting things as we walked from restaurant to restaurant tasting all kinds of delicacies. Dave and John toast each other with their appetizers – wild boar meat on crusty bread with a wild berry chutney. We had this at Bistro Tournebouche along with a glass of Le Rose’ Gabrielle a wine made in Quebec.
Of course we tasted the famous Quebec City poutine at the Snack Bar St. Jean. French fries covered in two kinds of cheese curds and gravy. Another classic Quebec food is maple syrup. At Canadian Maple Delights we learned about how maple syrup is made and then got to taste different kinds of syrup, a liqueur made with maple syrup and a maple syrup waffle.
At Le Moine Echanson Velma and I toasted each other with a white wine made in Montreal. We also had a salty codfish cake with mayonnaise.
A ham and cheese buckwheat crepe along with a local apple cider were our taste treats at Le Billig.We started the tour with a salmon tartare at La Cremallere and ended it with….apple and hibiscus chocolates at Erico Creative Chocolate Shop.
It took three hours to eat our way through Quebec City but it was delicious!
