Île d'Orléans: Island of Culinary Treasures

Île d'Orléans: Island of Culinary Treasures

Just a short hop from Quebec City, picturesque Île d’Orléans is home to a treasure trove of homemade culinary delights like old-world cider, black currant cassis and artisanal cheeses. Here’s our road map of the most delectable stops. Quebec City is one of my favourite cities to visit in Canada, or anywhere else, for that matter. Most deservingly, it’s consistently rated one of the top Canadian destinations for both Canadian vacationers and worldwide travellers alike. As it is one of the oldest cities in North America, it has much going for it — breathtaking scenery, awe-inspiring architecture, a culture of fine arts and incomparable cuisine. What a myriad of gastronomic delicacies there are to be had!
