Quebec- Day 5

Instead of having class first thing, we headed over to the farmers market. I love farmers markets- I can never over emphasize the importance of buying fresh local products! Getting to speak with the farmers about their products and methods is exceptionally valuable. They can tell you about their crops, and you can see the love they have for what they do and what they produce. This is far superior to buying an piece of fruit from a mountain of produce in a grocery store.

Some tomatoes

A variety of berries

Chef Eric and Jim perusing the cheeses.

Apple Ice wines

Bright and beautiful cauliflower

A Selection of Local Beers

Veggies! Look how lovely they are!

For our cooking class and lunch we had Trout Tartar, which was considerably harder to make than it looks. And I think my hands still smell like fish from all of that chopping.

Stuffed Zucchini and Pattypan squash

I am not going to say what this is.

Banana upside down cake and caramel ice cream.
Leif really, really liked the ice cream.
