A too-delicious weekend in Quebec City

Oh la la! Had the loveliest of fattening weekends ever in Quebec City, where I ate basically everything the French make and the snacks in the room too. More details to come, but here’s some food porn to satisfy in the meantime. You know you like it.

scallops1

Night #1: Le Graffiti. Veal medallions with grilled scallops. When in doubt, always get the surf & turf.

Dessert2

Les délices du pâtissier, though the pleasure’s all mine.

Frenchsnack3

Pretty sure this treat explains itself.

Dinner #next: A gastronomic feast at La Taniere. The menu suggests you “keep an open mind”, which of course I already do. Like this floating Ginger Sperification, for example.

quaileggs6

Quail eggs and briosh (I’m getting really full now).

mushroomforest5

If this isn’t a mushroom fairy forest, I don’t know what is.

bisonrose7

Mmm, deer rose. Not pictured: bacon bread.

mapledessert8

Maple everything: ice cream, marshmallows, butter, candies. Stop eating now, Rosemary!

beansoup9

But it has my name on it! Yes to a healthier lunch at Station Blü, the happiest place on Earth.

beettartar10

Beet tartare, with strawberry and granny smith apples.

And cheese, always more cheese! Big thanks to my new friends at Quebec City Tourism. Can’t do a thing without you! Especially anything as delicious as this.
