Where do we find the food culture in the towns and villages of North America? It is easy in places like Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, New York, Chicago, etc. But what about La Malbaie or the Gaspésie? We have been driving along both sides of the St. Lawrence River and all we can find are miniature frozen shrimps, the odd cooked lobster and farmed fish from the near coast, the far coast and beyond including tilapia in big stores like Metro and Provigo. The restaurants seem to specialize in quantity rather than quality. We visited a Visitor Centre in Grande Vallée yesterday and the woman working there gave us a copy of the Gaspésie Gourmande Guide. We were so excited to finally have the ability to find local specialties and products. So we stopped in each town or village listed in the guide on our way to Forillon without much success. We did however eat the best lobster and crab rolls this side of Maine at a little place called Cantine de Pêcheur in Cloridorme which was not listed in the guide. The Boutique du Havre directly across from this place was listed and barely had a food product in sight. We still have hope for the other side of the Gaspé but we think we have our work cut out for us.
