A 3rd edition of Bouffons Montreal from July 15 to 30, 2017!
On Saturday, July 15, the 3rd edition of Bouffons Montreal, the big festival of cooking in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles, will kick off with great fanfare. I should rather say celebration rather than Feast, since the event itself celebrates the cuisine of the world.
3rd edition of Bouffons Montreal: But what exactly is Bouffons Montréal?
It is a large gathering of several restaurateurs on the Esplanade Clark (the site is even bigger than before) during the Just for Laughs Festival, to offer festivalgoers an interesting food mix instead of the traditional hot dogs and hamburgers As do several festivals. And there is choice!
Before going to the food section, here is a little more on the place, access to the site is free, it is a party atmosphere, there is a wooden boardwalk (always practical during the rainy days), (It’s good to rest under the sun), a new central Tiki bar (we like the Tiki is not it?), Animations of all kinds and dj to bring you to Late in the evening.
With nearly 600,000 people in 2 weeks last year, the site will now occupy the entire quadrangle of the Esplanade, you will be happy to count on shadows, which were rare last year. Also, you will find even more restaurateurs than in 2016, quite difficult to beat but good, and all at affordable prices.
3rd edition of Bouffons Montreal: A godmother and a godfather!
Sommelier, entrepreneur and host, Jessica Harnois has worked for the largest establishments in the world and has also been for nearly four years buyer for the prestigious wines (SAQ Signature & Courrier vinicole) of the Société des alcools du Québec. Jessica has also designed three Italian wines including the popular BÙ wine. She will be present on the site with Vins au Féminin (Savori) and the wine agency LBV.
Marc-André Jetté is an important figure in Montreal’s modern and innovative cuisine. He is the owner of the restaurant Hoogan and Beaufort, as well as the high-end event caterer: Marc-André: Le Traiteur. Its presence at BOUFFONS! MTL will of course bear the distinctive elements of its approach at Hoogan and Beaufort, that is to say make its letters of nobility to the firing of wood: cooking in embers, burning, smoking, roasting . Prepare yourself for breathtaking grills …
