In January, I decided to take advantage of vacation deals and went to Quebec for a weekend to explore Quebec, Chateau de Frotenac, and the Ice Hotel. I had an incredible time overall. During my stay at the Chateau, I wandered around a bit and discovered the Aux Anciens Canadiens Restaurant, supposedly the oldest building in Quebec. The restaurant is located in the historic Maison Jacquet, just down the block from the hotel. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable.
After my incredibly sumptuous dinner, they presented me with a dessert menu and I noticed one I’ve never had before called the Maple Syrup Pie. It was the house speciality so I decided I had to try it right away. If you can make it out there, I highly encourage you to go to the restaurant and try the restaurant’s amazing food. Until you can enjoy this unique dessert at the Aux Anciens Canadiens Restaurant, you can make it yourself with this easy recipe.
