Cabane à sucre is a part of our Québécois heritage, but let’s face it: Some of those old-school recipes are hard to stomach!
Instead of heading to the country get our maple fix, we’re booking a table at the Old Port’s La Cabane, a pop-up restaurant that’s open until April 15th.
Sugar shack staples like cretons, crispy pork and maple syrup beignets are on the $59/a person fixed menu, but chef Martin Juneau (of La Montée de Lait and Newtown fame) gives them a modern makeover that’s far, far away from what we sampled when we rode a yellow bus to the cabane as kids.
Sugaring off just got a whole lot more scrumptious. —Christine Laroche
