Prime Rib Roast Take Out?

Does anyone know where in Montreal I can purchase a good cooked prime rib roast for a 30-person party at home? Does a service like this exist?

Cooking Handicap But Feasting Capable.

    I am thinking Magnan's in the Pointe.They have developed more and more ready to eat options in the last year and that could be one

      I would strongly suggest you try cooking it yourself. I know it's an expensive cut of meat, but with a digital probe thermometer you can't go wrong. The whole point of a good roast beef if pulling it out of the oven, letting it rest, and then carving the glorious meat while still warm. Anything you buy pre-cooked will lose flavour and texture.

      If you start with a really good piece of meat, a simple slathering of butter, salt, pepper, mustard (if you want) - you can't go wrong.

        You might also want to try Ian Perreault prets-a-manger at 1248 Bernard O. ianperreault.com. He makes yummy take out food and may take requests.

          «Prime Rib is one of the easiest things to prepare at home so long as you have AC and a temp. probe»

          And in this case an oven large enough to accommodate two seven-rib roasts.

            You could also try contacting a butcher that does prepared foods as well, like Maitre Boucher on Monkland to inquire: 514-487-1437

            Another route - if you pop:

            personal chef montreal

            ...into Google, you'll find a number of local options.

            Good luck!
