Two bakers, a caterer and a chef are the newest Maple Masters
LONGUEUIL, QC, Feb. 2, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Four supremely-talented artisans and chefs from across Quebec have joined the select group of 100 Maple Masters. Each Master has a unique vision (and great love) for Quebec maple products.
Chosen by Maple Products from Quebec for its Maple Masters program, these four new Masters have shown their innovative genius by creating an amazing variety of culinary, food and gastronomic approaches to maple throughout the year.
Pâtisserie Christophe, Sorel-Tracy: Christophe Blanchin and his wife are a favoured couple amongst food lovers in the Suroît and surrounding regions. Their maple biscuit with its Tahitian vanilla mousse is a marvel of flavour and balance, joining the maple pain perdu and maple-coffee mousse on the gourmet menu of one of the finest bakeries in the Montérégie. Tasting is believing.
Pâtisserie Gascogne, five boutiques in the Montréal region: Philippe Labbé is a great chef of imagination and effervescence. From the maple tarte, maple cake and maple brioche to the maple chocolates, his specialties make the taste buds swoon. Gascogne is a sure bet for practitioners of the fifth deadly sin.
Dansereau Traiteur, Montréal: No matter where or when, Yves Lévesque serves you with kid gloves, and that's the secret behind the success of Dansereau Traiteur as well as, of course, the delicacies on offer. Maple-lacquered meats and poultry along with wonderful creamy mascarpone, maple and chocolate are just some of the pure pleasures that await the most discerning palates.
Restaurant Les 400 Coups, Old Montréal: Guillaume Cantin is a flavour magician who proudly assumes the mantle of Maple Master. His three-course, all-maple menu, his table d'hôte and desserts put Maple Products from Quebec to the fore, reflecting his profound attachment to the land and the food we produce here.
