From the farm to the table!
On Sunday, October 1st 2018, the first filming of the documentary "La fourchette du Québec" was shot on the Beauchamps family’s ancestral farm Canard du village in Montérégie took place. The main objective was to promote Québécois local products by using gastronomy to promote this cultural heritage of which we are so proud. It was Jay Chevery, in collaboration with LAprod Inc, who had the pleasure to orchestrate this evening with his usual ease and dynamism. The event brought together chefs Joël Robuchon and Éric Gonzalez from the Atelier MTL and Håkan Thörnström and their team. Together they created a 6-course meal with the products provided by different artisans, breeders and / or local producers present at the event.
Thirty Québécois artists including Jérémy Demay, Alex Nevski, Laurent Paquin, Genevieve Borne, Marie-Soleil Michon, Jerome Ferrer and many others were invited to spend the evening in this rural setting, to savor these innovative creations. The chefs also honored the famous non stuffed duck of the Barbarie breeding from Canard du Village by preparing it in 3 ways, to the delight of everyone, during different courses. Quebec pork, beef Wague, organic vegetables from La ferme verte tendre were also part of the meals prepared by the gastronomic artists. A mixologist was on hand to make cocktails with Jo Beef's vodka distilled with White Key maple water, and it was the Robert family of Vineyard and cider house Coteau-Rougement that offered the wine/cider pairing for the six courses. It was a successful evening, rich in discoveries and passion!
