Thanksgiving in Sherbrooke
Hello fellow Chowhounders,
I am writing on behalf of my sister whose youngest son is studying at Bishop's. He is not able to come home for Thanksgiving and she is distraught that he will be mssing this highest of family holidays! Do you know of any place that will be serving a traditional dinner? Food services at Bishop's are not doing anything special. Thanksgiving not celebrated in Quebec? She'd like to make reservations for him and the roommates. Spoiled, lucky boy!
Thanksgiving is celebrated much less in Québec than elsewhere in Canada. Some people do celebrate it.
Which Thanksgiving ?
The Canadian one, this next weekend, or the American one in November ?
Anyway, in both cases, it is less celebrated here in Québec than in the US.
If in Sherbrooke, you could try Dany St-Pierre's "August" restaurant, probably not traditional "thanksgiving" food, but probably solid franco-québecois cuisine.
re: Peaches to Poutine
Thanks for the responses. I think my sister is going to have him go to Hovey Manoir. The missing of Thanksgiving is a bigger deal for her than him- he'd be fine with beer and pizza!
I remember when I was a student at Laval and made a traditional meal for my French Canadian friends. While they enjoyed the turkey, they hated the pumpkin pie!
