Bonjour mes amis! I’m here at Trois Pistoles with very limited internet access, which is why I haven’t been blogging much lately. I also haven’t been cooking much because all my meals are prepared by my wonderful host, Aline, who cooks amazing vegetarian meals for 14 people 2 times a day. I don’t know how she does it, it’s so much work. Other than that, everyone is really nice here. The town is full of bicycles because that’s how the students get around. I don’t know how come the locals don’t get really angry because it’s really hard to drive a car around and not kill 5 students at once.
So since I don’t have a recipe to share with you, I will leave you with a few pictures from a trip we took to a cabane à sucre, which is the place where they make maple syrup and other maple products. This place is of course in a maple forest and the owner Jean-Pierre, whom you can see in the pictures, is a very kind and funny man. I ate way too much maple syrup there (served on ice, as you will see) and maple butter. Very delicious!
