Snapshots from Montreal

Let's start at the only photograph I took the entire weekend NOT relating to food. That's right ONE!

C'est Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal.  The next room over housed all the Inuit art from the permanent collection, all wonderfully ivory, smokey grey and black.  The highlight!


Now on to proof that once a fat kid...always a fat kid.

The Marché Jean-Talon is in La Petite-Italie (sounds so much better in French) section of Montreal, and was the largest and best farmers market I've been to.  Filled with gorgeous, mouth-watering produce, artisanal cheeses, baguettes that smelled so good I got goosebumps, among other things...



Crepes from the Pleiades:


And some pate that looked yummers!


If I lived in Montreal I would must assuredly do all my food shopping there!  Sigh...

We visited many other wonderful places, but being the bird of flight that I am,  forgot to whip out the ol' Pentax to document.

If I lived in Montreal, I would most assuredly be fat(ter).

Those leeks are just begging to have magic marker faces drawn on them.

Is Montréal stricter on leek iconoclasm than Wales? Hard to believe. Possibly just better organised to crush crime?

Revoltingly gorgeous souvenirs, D.

Dear Daniel, that does look like a great selection of paté. I love it with cornichons or onion marmalade xx
