Thanks to Montreal Highlights festival en lumieres spokesperson Jean-Francois Demers for coming in to the CKUT studio this Friday morning and giving listeners some ideas on the “best of the fest” happening in Montreal from Feb. 17-27. Here are his recommendations:
Complexe Desjardins Festival of Quebec Cheeses (Free, plus tasting coupons for wine – optional)!- cheese from Quebec and wines from the wine-makers you will find at the Festival’s Finest Tables Dinners at the city’s top restaurants. A very affordable way to try the best wines of the festival.
Jean-Talon Products of Charlevoix workshops (free, with samples) – Jean-Talon Salle Mandoline (upstairs)
And, M. Demers’ take on the city’s best cannoli:
Cafe International (but do they serve Alati-Caserta’s cannoli??)
