After you’ve finished learning from the culinary masters at La Pinsonnière, take a two-hour drive south to Quebec City, and check out some of the treats there. contributing writer Doug Wallace did just that and wrote about it in his story “7 Quebec City restaurants you must try.”

Restaurant Panache at the Auberge Saint-Antoine and Restaurant Initiale were two restaurants he visited.

Wallace: “The number of restaurants per capita is high in Quebec City, no doubt to help feed the masses of tourists cramming themselves into patio chairs during the summer, money burning holes in their pockets. But year-round, this town happily turns out some of the best food in the country, due in large part to the skill of people of the surrounding farmland.”
