Here is a chance to discover Québecois tradition at its best! Join in a hearty French Canadian feast at La Sucrerie de la Montagne, a maple sugar farm situated atop Mont-Rigaud amidst 40 acres of spectacular wooded trails, just 55 minutes from Montréal.
We will visit this rustic site and see authentic log cabins, immense wood-burning ovens in which fresh bread is baked, and the sugar shack where real maple syrup is made.
We will be greeted fireside with a glass of "caribou", a uniquely Québecois combination of red wine, white wine, blueberry wine and whisky. It warms the heart with its sweet and hearty flavour, and brings a smile to even the most serious face!
Dinner Menu: Homemade pea soup, freshly baked bread, potatoes, maple smoked bacon, Canadian salted back bacon, farmer's sausage, “tourtière” (meat pie), meatballs, sweet ham, omelette soufflé, baked beans, homemade ketchup, pickles & beets, scrumptious crêpes, real maple syrup, sugar pie, coffee & tea. Vegetarian option: Tourtière made with soya.
Our “Soirée d’Autrefois” entertainment consists of musicians who play throughout dinner, organize contests and get the group dancing. It is sure to be a night to remember with food and fun in the maple tree forests of rural Quebec.
