In the Outaouais region, our taste buds are highly developed. Why? Because here, the table is set to awaken your inner gourmet. A good starting point is to participate in tasting workshops at Casino du Lac-Leamy Rendez-vous des saveurs wine and food show. Visit our farms, and see how the animals are well fed and live in a beautiful environment. Meet the passionate and dedicated artisans who create our local products. All over the region, there are flavours to discover: cheeses that melt in your mouth, sparkling ciders, crunchy asparagus bursting with the promise of a sun-filled season, delicately smoked fish, creamy chocolates, and more. (Did you know that we have an Economuseum dedicated to chocolate?) To be sure you don't miss anything, consult the Outaouais Gourmet Way agri-tourism circuit with its many gourmet addresses. A veritable feast awaits you! And who knows, maybe youll leave our Outaouais region with a few new recipes to try.

Our featured route
The Outaouais' regional delights are doing pretty well, thank you very much! We could send you all over the region to sample them but you'd need most of the week so might we suggest a picnic? The Outaouais has wine, cheeses, smoked salmon and much much more, plus a superb setting in which to savour it all. Sounds good? You have no idea!
Start by taking an appointment to visit Vignoble du Clos Baillie. The grape varieties were all developed to survive our sometimes harsh weather and you'll discover unexpected treasures. After that, head to La Trappe à fromage and choose the fresh local cheeses and fine products that you'll enjoy later. Complete it all with smoked salmon tht makes even Maritimers jealous and you'll be ready to set the table. Actually, a blanket on the ground will do just fine.
