Québec products take the stage at MTLàTABLE as Montréal celebrates its 375th
What better way to celebrate a huge birthday than to create bridges between Montréal and the rest of the province? To mark Montréal’s 375th anniversary, this year’s edition of MTLàTABLE will feature Québec’s terroir and wealth of ingredients. The 175 participating restaurants will all be designing their menus to highlight the wonderful and delicious ingredients grown and produced right here in our province!
Did you know that Québec produces over 300 varieties of cheeses and that our pork is considered one of the best in the world and exported to some of the United States’ best fine dining establishments? Québec maple syrup accounts for more than 92% of the entire Canadian production, and we are the second largest producers of cranberries in the world!
You can discover the entire gamut of Produits du Québec (Québec-made) products everywhere around Montréal year round. From the Jean-Talon and Atwater markets, two of the city’s five farmers markets opened 12 months a year, to some 50 convenience stores and over 285 fine grocery stores including famous spots such as Fromagerie Hamel, La Vieille Europe and the world-famous St-Viateur Bagel, Québec-made foods are at your fingertips and available for you to pick up and savour anytime.
At this year’s MTLàTABLE, restaurants like Chez Victoire, Labo Culinaire, Hvor, H4C, Lili Co., Restaurant Le St-Urbain, Restaurant de l’ITHQ and La Récolte will be serving up delightful dishes featuring regional and seasonal products. You can search our list of Québec products by region. This list was created in collaboration with the Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l'Alimentation du Québec. Pair your meal with ESKA, a pure and refreshing Québec homegrown water from the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region.
The list of participating restaurants has been revealed on October 3, 2017. Go visit www.mtlatable.com to discover the 175 participating restaurants’ unique menus and book your tables.
