Chef Pierre Robillard, a native Montrealer who migrated to Toronto two years ago to open his popular Québecois restaurant, Café du Lac, specializes in a gourmet poutine made with Perron cheese curds, a foie gras and brie cream sauce which is sprinkled throughout with maple syrup drizzled pulled beef and topped with seared foie gras.
Pierre will be showcasing his specialty poutine at the Cheese Boutique in Toronto’s west end on Saturday, February 27th from noon to 4pm.
Too bad I live so far away. Can someone go and "cover" the event for Poutine Chronicles and report back to me? That'd be fantastic!
The Cheese Boutique is at 45 Ripley Avenue, Toronto. Phone: 416-762-6292. To read more about the cheese boutique, click here.
