The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Be a Glutton in Québec City


4. Insider’s Tip

A wall of contraband cheeses at Épicerie Européenne.  

Fight the power by consuming raw-milk (unpasteurized) cheeses that are illegal in the United States. Emboldened eaters should try Tomme de Kamouraska, a washed-rind sheep cheese from the Kamouraska region; Bastido, a goat's-milk cheese from St-Raymond-de-Portneuf at Épicerie Européenne; or browse the aisles at J.A. Moisan for Pied de Vent (a semi-hard cow's-milk cheese) and Le Bleu d'Elizabeth (an organic blue cheese).
