Au Pied de Cochon and Cabane d’à Côté sugar shacks

The first offers an elaborate feast featuring maple products, the second a farm-to-table menu starring seasonal vegetables and grilled meat. “Both sugar shacks are owned by our neighbours and friends, chefs Martin Picard and Vincent Dion Lavallée, who are committed to encouraging local producers. And both places are a must!”
