Even though, over the last few years, my mother tends to favor lamb and roe deer meat in her Christmas menu, poultry was always featured on my family’s feast table during the holidays. Capon and turkey being the most favored poultry for holiday celebration in my mother’s kitchen, and now in mine.
Last Sunday, with a group of friends, we went to a Cabane à Sucre outside Montréal. Cabanes à Sucre or Sugar Shacks in English are popular traditional establishments in Québec where maple syrup and everything sweet are celebrated. It’s basically an institution and a must-stop for anyone visiting the Belle Province between October and April.
