With the second most restaurants per capita in all of North America, Montrealers sure do love going out to eat, and often! But in a city so full of awesome food, can you really blame us? With our foodie culture running deep as it does, it should come as no surprise we also love our food festivals! Well, it just so happens, there is a fan-favourite making its return this month, that not only looks tasty, but is affordable too!
Now on its fourth edition, Montreal's very own LeCHOP food festival is back, and this year is challenging some of the city's top chefs in a new cook-off show, hosted by former Olympic champion and TV personality, Alexandre Despatie.
Each week, Chefs Natalia Machado (L’Atelier d’Argentine - Downtown & Vieux-Port), Jean-Sébastien Giguère (Decca77), Giuseppe Sacchetti (Newtown) and Paulo Fraga (Wienstein & Gavino’s), arguably some of Montreal's best places to eat at, will square off to create signature dishes using a mystery ingredient, which will then be featured in their respected restaurants as part of the special LeCHOP menu that week.
This is where you get to EAT! From January 4 to February 11, visit any of the five participating restaurants to take advantage of this special LeCHOP menu. The delicious 3-course menu consists of your choice of 3 entrees, 4 mains (3 constants and 1 rotating LeCHOP special edition dish), and 3 desserts, all for the exclusive price of just $25!
LeCHOP gives you an up-close and personal look at how each chef is doing their thang in the kitchen, and is inviting all Montrealers to vote on their favourite dishes for chances to win one of 5 weekly prizes; a FREE LeCHOP meal for two!
These talented Montreal chefs are stepping up their culinary expertise and taking your dining experience to a whole other level, while giving you the opportunity to try their amazing restaurants at a great price. So make sure to check them out before it's too late, and don't forget to watch LeCHOP every Monday starting January 4, and vote for your favourite dish at www.lechopmtl.com!
