A new culinary culture in Quebec City is getting foodies excited. Chefs in the area are adopting a localism approach, focused on using food produced locally. This change in cuisine is quickly transforming Quebec City into a new foodie destination, and is sure to attract foodies and travellers.
“While the hallmarks of classic sugar shack cuisine thankfully linger, local chefs have fully embraced the localism movement – an established trend, for sure, but slightly more complicated in a climate like Quebec’s. And while the influences of traditional European cuisine remain, the city’s top chefs are moving away from fatty meats and heavy sauces and creating a nouveau Quebecois cuisine with more vegetable-focused dishes with the finest (and highly micro-managed) local produce,” says Sarah Treleaven in the National Post.
Residents of Quebec City have a passion for food, especially when it comes to organic farming, wine and le terroir – “the symbiotic relationship between the soil, the climate and the geography that create the perfect conditions for products like wine, coffee, chocolate and cheese—all of which Quebec City produces in spades,” says Aliyah Shamsher in Elle Canada.
If you are planning to make the trip to Quebec City to see what this foodie destination has to offer, Treleaven recommends:
