For the past few years Martin Picard (chef/owner of the popular Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal) has operated a sugar shack about one hour outside of Montreal. It reminded me of a summer camp dining hall but one that serves up an incredible feast - we had fourteen courses: 6 appetizers, 3 mains and 5 desserts! The price is reasonable (approx. $60 without beverages, tax and gratuity) and it sells out for the season in about an hour. Some of our favourites dishes were the tomato soup with slices of a brioche-wrapped sausage, an amazing pork roast with delicious carrots, a huge meatloaf covered in Brussels sprouts, mushrooms and breaded sweetbreads (or was it brains), incredible fruit tarts and a modern castle-like version of a vacherin filled with ice cream. Wow!
