There’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, something that I’ve wanted to cross off my food list of Montreal; to eat at every single BBQ restaurant in Montreal. When I say BBQ, I’m talking about American, southern BBQ and I don’t mean restaurants that just so happen to serve a random rack of ribs or a maple bacon smoked something or other. We’ve got a Places that specialize in the cuisine and craft like the award-winning and standard setting Blackstrap BBQ in the city, but to complete my list, my goblet of sauce had to be topped off with a small road trip north of the city; the place was far, and by far I’m talking I had to pack a snack for the car.

Do you like cheese? Of course you do! I don’t know many people who don’t like cheeses, and even if I did, I don’t think those are the types of people I need in my life. But you know what’s even better than cheese? Locally produced cheeses from right here in Quebec. Unless you’re a true explorer of cheeses, chances are it’s tough to find the kinds of cheeses that appeal to you. From soft, to firm, veined to aged, finding Quebec cheeses that fit the profile that you enjoy has now gotten easier with the Fromages d’ici app. [click to continue…]
