2.5-Hour Savoring Montreal Food Tour: Exploring the Marche Jean Talon - Private

Context Travel

In what other city do the culinary specialities run the gamut from tire sur la neige (a taffy made by pouring boiling hot maple syrup onto fresh snow) to French fries smothered in gravy and cheese curds? In this Montreal food tour we'll discover one of North America's most distinct food scenes. Focused on the Marché Jean Talon and led by a food writer or chef, we'll dive into the local flavors and ingredients, learning the history and culture of Canada's foodie paradise. This exploration of the Marché Jean Talon, North America’s largest open air market, will delve deeply into Quebec's various gastronomic wonders. Here we will admire farm fresh produce, homemade cheeses and sausages, and taste the fabulous fungus of a local mushroom forager. Stopping at the Marché des Saveurs, which exclusively features products from Québec, our docent will highlight varied maple goods, cider, and cranberry alcohol. Our food foray may also include locally made spices and olive oils, artisanal bread, and maple salmon bites from a fishmonger whose wares come directly from the beautiful Gaspésie Peninsula. After our culinary expedition through the Marché Jean Talon, our senses will be intimately acquainted with the tastes and aromas specific to Quebec gastronomy. Fair warning: baggage may smell of smoked meat upon departure.
