Québec’s creativity is far from lost on our gastronomic community. In fact, many of Québec City’s chefs are known far and wide. Drawing from renowned know-how, the city is also a source of inspiration for young culinary artists who boldly create original, delectable dishes that delight every sense.
Epicureans will enjoy the quality and diversity of the ever-changing creations, which may feature some unusual pairings, but are sure to please even the most discerning palate. Our chefs take great pride in using local products. Know that the plate set before you with a flourish is the result of a wonderful partnership with the regional producers. It is no wonder that there are so many restaurants per capita.
To maximize concentration and lower the risk of dipping energy levels, it is a good idea to opt for healthy foods at your meetings and events. For lunch, order chicken and fish: meats that are light and provide enough protein to keep you going all afternoon. Eat with a side of steamed or sautéed vegetables, a baked potato or generous serving of rice.
