If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Paris on the Prairies

Submitted by on October 25, 2011 – 12:27 amNo Comment

During the annual Festival du Voyageur, Western Canada’s largest winter festival, every year in February, Road Trips Foodies can sample classic French-Canadian cuisine, including pea soup, tourtière (a warm, meat pie) and sugar pie. Or maybe take a walk across the Esplanade Riel footbridge to St. Boniface to sample Croque Monsieur, cuisses de grenouille (frog legs) or Coq au Vin.

Then, take in a play at the oldest French theatre in Canada, Le Cercle Molière, or take a visit to the St. Boniface Museum, built in 1846, that displays the life of the Métis and French-Canadians in the largest existing oak-log structure in North America.

It all takes place from February 17 through 26, 2012 — not in Québec, but in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada: Paris on the Prairies (who knew?).

This year’s Rendez-vous des chefs is a pea soup competition. It takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. February 27, 2012, in the Maison du Bourgeois in Voyageur Park.
