It’s simple; when our kitchens here in Quebec begin to smell of cinnamon, cloves and tourtière spices (is it a meat pie or a pâté? – we agree to disagree!) – that’s when we know for sure that the Holidays are upon us. All these beautifully rich and highly fragrant dishes are further proof of what we suspected all along; our great grand mothers were not at all shy when it came to cooking with herbs and spices. We would like to share this traditional Holiday menu, with a few of our own personal touches thrown in, like Brussel sprouts with honey and chai-spiced cranberry chutney. Trust us, there is no better finale to an indulgent and abundant feast than our infamous chocolate maniac cake – we’re just saying!
