What a great day!
We had our first cooking course this morning. On the menu was..
A mushroom and asparagus salad- The asparagus were cooked absolutely perfectly- It was delightful!
Main course was a beer braised chicken leg, with celery and potato boulengere.
Dessert was homemade vanilla ice cream and French Canadian sugar pie (which I made, and I have to tell you I stumbled through that recipe like nothing you have ever seen)
After that we went to the Citadelle and for a tour of the residence of the Governor General of Canada.
View from the Citadelle
Walked through the city and stopped for a coffee to regroup
Of course had a lovely Pain au chocolat to accompany.
Saw that cannonball tree
Speaking of things you don't see everyday, here is a lady with a cat on her shoulder
Then went to Restaurant Aux Ancient Canadiens
check out the 95 dollar entree- I was tempted(Don't worry,Nathan- I didnt :P)
For of us ordered an app and we all shared.
We had Rillettes de bison et chutney de canneberges Which was basically a meat spread with fruit
Marmite de feves au lard (baked beans)
Pate a la viande serve avec notre maridade aux fruits- sweet meat pie with fruit.
They even had TV's so you could watch the chefs cooking!
On the walk back i got some cheese- I think that is what I am having for dinner!
I have a feeling that I am going to be a glorious sausage by the time I return!
