Influenced by its European traditions and multiculturalism, the food culture here is a feast for the senses with an approach to dining that transforms the joy of eating into an art of living. Though famous for hearty Québécois fare like tourtiere (meat pie), poutine (french fries with gravy and cheese curds), baked beans and maple syrup, Québec’s country roads are brimming with fresh flavors, while the St. Lawrence River is a trove of delectable delicacies such as scallops and lobster. The French are known for their passion for fine food and inspired local eating, and here the slow food movement is alive - and very tasty.
