Event description

Description

Parisian-Maritimes chef and historic cook Chantal Véchambre leads a workshop featuring foods made in the early 1700s for aristocrats in France and in New France including andouillette de poisson and crème brûlée with lime (yes, really!) Chantal tells us that the andouilette de poisson was the exasperated 18th-century housewife's method of keeping her husband happy at dinner while not having to listen to him smacking his lips over beef bones!

Chantal Véchambre worked in food in Paris before moving to New Brunswick in 2005. Her interest and research in culinary history led to a collaboration with the team at the Fortress of Louisbourg (Nova Scotia), a National Historic Site of Canada, where she developed recipes based on 18th-century sources. She is the author, with Anne Marie Lane Jonah, of the award-winning book French Taste in Atlantic Canada, 1604-1758, A gastronomic history (CBU Press), featuring ingredients and recipes of the colonial period. Since her move to Toronto, she has delighted workshop attendees with her lively presentations at events like Hungry for Comfort at Fort York, and teaching aspects of French cooking at The Depanneur.

Chantal Véchambre promises to give us an interesting and fun workshop—with a tasty, historical end result. Join us and share in the taste of Canadian history!
