MONTRÉAL FROMAGERIE EXPERIENCE
8:30 am – 5:00 pm, $80 per person
Bus departs from and returns to The Westin Montréal
Discover the important role cheese plays in Montréal’s unique culture! You’ll begin with a visit to Fromagerie Affineur Maître Corbeau for a tasting with owner and Québec cheese expert André Piché. This small quaint shop accommodates over 220 cheeses – but can accommodate just half our group at a time – so we’ll split up and half will enjoy a coffee break next door at Le Lapin Pressé (a café and “grillcheeserie”). We’ll return to the bus for an expertly guided tour showcasing Montreal’s neighborhoods, architecture, history, and, of course, culinary highlights. You’ll pass through different neighborhoods to learn how Montréalers live: the Mont-Royal, le Plateau, Old Montréal. The next stop is a Montréal gem, Atwater Market, a public market overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, bakeries, flowers, and more! A lunch of Montréal’s famous smoked meats will be served at the city’s classic Restaurant Brisket, said to serve the best smoked meat sandwich in town. After lunch, the bus will take you to the Montérégie region in Southwest Québec to visit Fromagerie Ruban Bleu where the owner of this farmstead goat cheese dairy will share her experiences – and introduce you to her herd of 80 Toggenburg goats!
Full day tour includes: Motorcoach transportation, professional tour guide, all tastings and presentations, coffee break, lunch, and all taxes.
