There are a few things that we Montrealers are passionate about; politics, the great bagel and smoked meat debates, road construction and a good food festival. If you think hard, you’ll be able to remember the times the city was literally a buzz with food-centric events. Hungry hoards of foodies making the trek to different parts of the city all in the name of devouring some of the best dishes by the city’s best culinary talents. One of the biggest Old Montreal food festivals is back after a two year hiatus; Happening Gourmand and it’s better than ever.
What’s better than to beat the hot, humid summer heat than with a cold, frosty, sweet treat? I love ice cream. If you follow me on Instagram, you would know, that I’m a sucker for a cone topped with deliciously creamy scoops or perfectly spiralled soft serve. My passion for ice cream has prepared me for this moment… Today, in collaboration with Ca Lem Creamery, we are launching an exclusive Shut Up and Eat soft serve flavor of the week… and I’m giving some of it away!
