Passing the word about Slow Food - Page 2

I did not mean to sell it short...Montreal is a beautiful city with lots of great food, including some marvelous Indian Restaurants. I once lived not far away, on the stateside, in VT. My wife and I took frequent forrays into Quebec when I was teaching at NECI.

Kimmie, perhaps you could organize a Slow Food Dinner at one of those fabulous Indian restaurants... Mysore, bombay palace, what's best do you think?

Peace,
kmf

They change all the time (I mean the Indian restaurants). All of them, without exception, lack consistency. I don't know if Indian chefs are moody or something but you can have a wonderful meal one day and next time, they may poison you! I know some people who got food poisoning!

I stopped eating at Bombay Palace years ago! Can you tell me more about Mysore?

I wear my sari and cook Indian at home!

BTW, what's NECI stand for?


:eek:

I loved the food in Montreal, even the fries with cheese and gravy. We stayed in a great place right by the port (warehouse converted to an Inn). I remember a wonderful restaurant in the historic (?) part that served great Borscht, and vodkas that matched different foods..one was very grassy tasting but good.

We also stayed in Quebec City (the old part - walled) at Chateau Frontenac...and had great meals there too..two restaurants we enjoyed were The Canadian..and Cafe Dumond.

Both of those places are beautiful Kimmie.

Dear SeattleDeb and Jeni:

I think Quebec City is "hot" right now as far as restaurants are concerned.

Montreal has seen better days. I don't mean to say it's not a great food city anymore but the really good places are fewer in number.

:(

Jeni: I work in Place Ville-Marie. Have you seen Moevenpick?

SeattleDeb: Was the inn called Bonaparte, by any wonderful chance? and might you have had the Borscht and Vodka at Stash?

At Château Frontenac, in Quebec City, the chef was Jean Soulard. I don't know if he's still there. I have a few recipes from him.
Great chef!

;)

Kimmie...I can't remember the restaurant name, only that it was ethnic :)

We stayed at the Auberge du Vieux-Port facing the river. Great breakfasts. www.aubergeduvieuxport.com

SeattleDeb:

I think you were at Stash's Restaurant. It's the only one I can think of who serves Borscht.

I know Auberge du Vieux Port. Hope you enjoyed it.

Here's Auberge/Restaurant Bonaparte. Their website is www.bonaparte.com

and don't skip their intro...you'll know what I mean upon your visit!

You ABSOLUTELY MUST let me know, whenever you plan to come to Montreal!

:D

On vacations we're walkers/explorers..we must've walked right by that Inn on our way to the Basilica...had to rerun the intro because I had my speakers turned off! Very nice.

Absolutely loved that trip...we started in upstate NY, went to Montreal, Quebec, VT, ME, NH, MA, ending back in NY...ran out of time as usual.

It's so typical isn't it, to run out of time that is. Holidays always seem too short!

Glad you enjoyed the website. I'm right around the corner!

Holidays :o)..I remember being on a trip to Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff...and mentioning to someone at a store that we were on vacation..the woman said have a nice holiday, and I said you too! (until hubby pointed out that holiday means vacation in Canada and she probably wasn't on one).

Jeni and SeattleDeb,

I just opened a thread under <Montreal and Food> in Cook's Corner.

In all fairness to Kurt...

Thanks, Pooh, I did wonder about that. But those who wish to pick up the Slow Food discussion can do so in Cook's Corner under Slow Food on CBS.

spendy but worth it

Yes, US$60 is a bit high for membership but the quality of the people you meet is high, as is the quality of the events. It's just first-class all the way. Plus, I believe you get their publication with your membership dues. They have some excellent books. Just go to a book store or even Amazon.com and check out "Slow Food..Collected Thoughts on Taste, Tradition and the Honest Pleasures of Food" for starters.

Bon Apetit!
