Montreal-style bagels

Unlike other world-famous bagels, the bagels in Montreal are sweeter, denser, and thinner. They are baked in a wood fire oven that gives them a unique flavour along with a generous coating of poppy or sesame seeds. 

Tire d’érable sur la neige

Canadians love their maple syrup! Get a taste of this sweet syrup in a traditional treat prepared by pouring boiling maple syrup over snow. Due to the drastic temperatures, the syrup hardens until it can be rolled up with a popsicle stick. The result is a rich maple taffy with a soft and gooey texture.

Pouding chômeur

Its name literally means ‘unemployment pudding’ because it was first made in the Great Depression by female factory workers. However, it is still a filling dessert that will lift your spirits immediately. Get a taste of this dessert cake topped with a layer of maple syrup or caramel.
