The aperitif is always a pleasant and festive moment. During happy hour you meet your friends, you are having a toast, having a drink, you nibble, you talk and you laugh. One drink, two drinks, three drinks and so on. And above all you never forget to have a toast, because obviously there is always something to celebrate!
Today, I was missing France. Indeed I was there recently for Christmas and New Year. It was the opportunity, like all of my colleagues like to say sometimes, to find again my beret, my striped jersey, my saucisson, cheese and my baguette under my arm. I have also met again the entire family and friends. Like a daydream somehow. And since I was missing France, today I decided to make a beef bourguignon!
In recent years Japanese restaurants are popping up all over France, and as in Europe they are popular in Canada. It seems that Quebec is following this trend: restaurateurs are taking advantage of this craze for Japanese cuisine and many chain restaurants have emerged.
Although we love to go to the restaurant it is also nice to be home sometimes. Or when you’re at home and you start feeling the sushi or maki urge, the simplest solution is to call the nearest the delivery man. But is it really difficult to make them yourself? You like Japanese food and you have time ? Well that’s perfect because today I offer you a maki workshop!
Rooftops appeared in New York and then gradually invaded the big cities of the world: London, Barcelona, Tokyo, Shanghai, Sydney, and through Singapore … People go there to have a drink, to eat or even for parties. Nowadays there are many in France and I even had the opportunity to try a few in Paris last summer.
In Quebec you won’t have the chance to enjoy rooftops but you will a rotating restaurant instead, Ciel! Bistro-Bar, which offers a beautiful view of the city.
Today we try a great classic of French cuisine. Will your grandmother be surprised?
What can we possibly do on a beautiful Sunday afternoon? The idea of a brunch seemed fair to me. With “the gang” (group of friends), we had decided to go in the Saint-Roch district to try the brunch of the Clocher Penché.
The Saint-Sauveur district is located in lower Town of Quebec, close to the famous Saint-Roch neighbourhood. Renowned for its shops, the area has also many restaurants, including Patente and Machin. People are talking a lot about it and I was looking forward to try the place so we went there one night with friends for dinner!
