Kings of Quebec supported by Destination Canada

A rare chance to try the more-is-more cooking of Montreal

Montreal’s food scene is white-hot right now. And it’s synonymous with one name: Joe Beef. Not a person but a lauded restaurant, Joe Beef opened in 2005 and has earned a reputation for embracing Quebec’s hedonistic style of gastronomy. Now with several restaurants under their belt, including McKiernan Luncheonette with Derek Dammann of Maison Publique, the team are ready to take Melbourne by storm. Catch five of the hottest people in Montreal’s food scene at this candle-lit supper of epic proportions.

Joe Beef’s hometown of Montreal is one of the most exciting food cities in North America today – but there’s more to Canada than this one gourmet destination. Across the country are thriving food scenes, anchored by strong traditions of living off the land and cooking according to the seasons. New migrants have brought incredible diversity to the restaurants and street-food of Canada’s cities, while a burgeoning craft-brewing, distilling and natural wine scene are creating a whole new generation of growers and producers.
