For March Break, we’re bringing the cabane à sucre experience from up North to the city. Begins Saturday Mar 14th – Ends Sunday March 22nd
Cabanes à sucre (or sugar shacks) were a tradition introduced in New France by settlers of Swiss and Normand origin throughout the 17th century. Their purpose was the production of maple syrup during the spring months beginning in March when maple trees could be tapped. In the last century, they’ve become a gathering place for breaking bread with family and friends at the table, stuffing your belly with delicious food and eating tire d’érable (or maple taffee) on a stick.
For the next two weeks, we’ll feature authentic, hard-to-find traditional sugar shack dishes. And don’t forget to bring the kids! We’re preparing maple taffee for them (and you) to roll in the snow and enjoy – it’s the ultimate spring popsicle.
