Not much to add tonight other than the extraordinary shock of seeing a family of very-Northern-Canadians sitting on their kitchen floor with Anthony Bourdain, hands and faces covered in blood, devouring what looked like a barely-cooked seal.
Yes, our favorite gourmande, (the Travel Channel's) Anthony Bourdain, did Quebec.
Note to self: Au Pied de Cochon, bastion of foie (website, review), and la Banquise (for poutine, which Bourdain visits "to experience this conceptually nightmarish, but thoroughly wonderful gastronomic trainwreck.") [poutine reviews, incl. Banquise]
I miss Montreal.
By the way - and this always catches my eye when walking down Ste. Catherine - what are those lips on that billboard? Here is a Flickr photo. And another. Canadians? Anyone know?
