So, the big news this year is that Pied De Cochon Cabane à Sucre started offering an apple-themed session similar to their regular cabane à sucre extravaganza. There is no secret that we at Montreal Breakfast Review adore these special events and although it may not be traditional brunch we made sure to go during an acceptable brunch hour on a Saturday and dubbed it brunch. Finally, with a small army of hungry friends, some coming all the way from Toronto and New York, we descended upon the Pied de Cochon Cabane for a feast of epic proportions.
So as winter winds down, people start to breathe a sigh of relief; days feel longer, the fear of waking up to 20cm of snow is ebbing. So that means one thing: that’s right, Pied De Cochon Cabane à Sucre. If you aren’t familiar with the Pied de Cochon Cabane à Sucre, it’s a foodie’s dream come true. This dream is made up of a few ingredients, one part being foodie hero/saint aka Chef Martin Picard, add a generous portion of foie gras, some maple syrup, some duck, a little bit of meat pie, and 20 hungry people all ready to experience a culinary delight.
Pied De Cochon Cabane A Sucre – and this little piggie went sugaring off
Cabane à sucre: that one time a year when we get together and have food you would never have any other time of the year; those classic meals dishes like tortière, omelettes, Oreilles de crisse, beans, sausages and others. Now, cabane à sucre food is not exactly brunch food, but it isn’t exactly lunch either so for this review we will make an exception. I should also note that we currently do not plan on going to every cabane à sucre since I can only handle so much line dancing music and hits from the 90’s at once. All this to say that we decided to do a classy cabane à sucre and by some cosmic power, I got a call recently from a friend saying that he had a spot for me at the Pied de Cochon cabane à sucre.
