Tremblant Gourmand is a new food festival taking place for the first time this year. It’s the “first North American event for active epicureans” and I am happy to be on the roster for this first year’s conferences.
The 10-day long event is set in charming Mont-Tremblant in the heart of the Laurentian mountains. The setting alone is worth the trip – especially in the fall! – but the event includes an exciting array of activities including culinary demos, mountain trekking, cycling or jogging, yoga, foraging for wild mushrooms and many more that all sound really delicious. Now I am not an active person per say but I can definitely go for wild-mushroom foraging, a barbecue demo with grill master Stephen Raichlen or a talk and demo on the art of coffee with me, quite honestly 🙂 Quite a few local restaurants, bars and cafés will also be on site to keep you all well fed. Best of all, access to the site is free but you can also get yourself a VIP Passport for all kinds of special perks at participating businesses. If you want to take part in some of the activities, you do have to sign up (they are also free unless you have to rent equipment like, for example, a bike).
I hope to see you there, I’ll be making coffee made using five different methods for you all to taste.
