A Visit to Quebec City

We just got back from a lovely few days in Quebec City. Being a foodaholic, just about every thing we did, concerned eating.

We picked a quaint bed and breakfast place to stay in, Château des Tourelles at
212 rue St-Jean -one reason being that they served a great homemade breakfast every morning.

One of their delicious breakfast choices with wonderful homemade preserves! (Château des Tourelles)

While there, I fell in love with the bakery-cafe, Paillard (Café-boulangerie Paillard), 1097, rue Saint-Jean -conveniently on the same street we stayed on, but within the walls of the old city.  I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves....
Paillard - Mouth watering breads

Paillard - More mouth watering breads!

Paillard - A delicious warm beef and blue cheese sandwich
 with cauliflower soup.

There is also a large and gorgeous Farmer's Market, Marche du Vieux-Port de Quebec, where I saw the most beautiful leeks that I have ever seen. If only I had access to a pot and stove!

Beautiful veggies and fruits at the Farmer's Market.
Just look at those leeks!

Susan's Cooking School at the 2014 NYS Fair!

On August 28, 2014 at 12:30 pm, Susan's Cooking School will be cooking in the Wegman's Demonstration Kitchen in the bottom level of the Art & Home Center at the New York State Fair. All food demonstrations are free and open to the public!

This year, Dariusz and I will be making panko breaded chicken cutlets, with fresh plum sauce and jasmine rice pilaf! All attendees will receive a free recipe and be eligible for several door prizes. In addition to all of that - the seating area is air conditioned, which for those of you that been at the fair in late August, know is quite a blessing.

After the demonstration, there is a question and answer period -so come and ask away! My goal is that after the demo, you'll be able to prepare this absolutely wonderful meal at home for you and your family!

A little video about us at the fair!

Hope to see everyone there and please be sure to come up and say "hello" after the show!
