A Weekend in Montreal through Pictures-Part 2

August7

My fascinating and delicious trip to Montreal continued on day two. The perfect way to explore Montreal’s tasty and diverse neighbourhoods was by electric scooter as we did the next morning. Being perched behind tour leader and fellow foodie Melissa Simard founder of Tours de la Table was an added bonus.

We wound our way through the neighbourhood of Plateau Mount-Royal until we reached this perfect vista of the cityscape.

Along the way, the former home of Leonard Cohen was pointed out to us.

Centrale Culinaire in Mile End is a communal kitchen set up for catering and small-scale food production. Being a food stylist, I was also fascinated by the collection of wares stored for the photo shoots.

We stopped at various stores and shops in the neighbourhoods.

Another stop was at this 65 year old bagel stop where I learned that a Montreal bagel is distinguished by three characteristics: they are hand-rolled, they are put into a bath of honeyed water and then baked in a wood-fired oven.

We only had time for a quick stop at one of the largest fresh markets in North America: Marche Jean Talon.

I could have stayed at the market for hours meeting the multigenerational stall keepers and perusing their succulent offerings.

After safely returning our scooters we walked back through this beautiful park to catch the subway “home”.

If you recall home for the weekend was the Marriott Chateau Champlain where room service greeted me with refreshments and succulent chocolate covered strawberries. A fascinating day.
