A host of culinary experiences will be available, including: Thai sautéed vegetables, smoked magret de canard with raspberry comfit, spiced lamb pastry, mushroom bundle with Meaux mustard and leek comfit, guinea fowl terrine topped with a spicy wine jelly, as well as fine local cheeses. Lavender profiteroles and several other little treats will also be offered.

Visitors will be able to settle down around a table under the tent and complement their meal with a glass of wine from a regional grower. They will also have the opportunity to buy products that please their palate.

The Compagnons of the Louis S. St-Laurent National Historic Site of Canada is a co-operating association and non-profit organization that participates in the regional heritage presentation of the Louis S. St-Laurent National Historic Site.
