Auberge Saint-Antoine’s distinguished Panache restaurant is rolling out its Panache Mobile truck, with plenty of epicurean surprises awaiting culinary enthusiasts who visit the Sainte-Petronille Vineyard on Quebec’s Orleans Island this summer.
Panache Mobile will be open daily at the vineyard from June 24th to September 5th, and on Saturdays and Sundays from mid-May to June 23rd and from September 6th to October 9th.
“The idea behind Panache Mobile was to bring award-winning food to our patrons in a fun and engaging way,” says Jean-Louis Souman, hotel director of the Auberge Saint-Antoine. “We’ve incorporated a lot of fresh produce and local ingredients that bring food truck fare to a completely new level.”
Panache Mobile will serve up some inspired culinary creations that diners won’t be able to find anywhere else. Lobster hotdogs and a gourmet take on poutine are among the more unique items sharing space on the menu with seasonal and local favourites such as organic Charlevoix sausages, Angus beef tartare with truffle vinaigrette, Louis d’Or cheese, BLT bison hamburgers and more. Panche Mobile presents a unique twist by deviating from the standard food truck fare, making it a must-do for gastronomic enthusiasts this summer.
Much of Panache’s organic and locally grown produce, cheese and maple syrup is supplied from a family farm located on Orleans Island to ensure that freshness, innovation and authenticity are hallmarks of each meal from Panache Mobile. The Sainte-Petronille Vineyard offers the perfect setting for diners, with an incredible view of the magnificent Montmorency waterfalls.
