sugar

The Japanese Dollar Store on Decarie below Sherbrooke has rock sugar for coffee and tea.
I bought it on the owners reccomendation and found it dissolved easily and was not overly sweet.

filipino restaurants in Montreal

I agree with Kpzoo TK might be the Resto that breaks the rule that there are no good Filipino Restos in Montreal.It is a contempory look to Filipino food not Mama's comfort
cooking.

Anything food worthy in and around Anjou ?

Not much in the way of restaurants, a couple good Canoli shops but the two standout foodie attractions are Berchicci Foods a big box store specialized in everything Italian. They import by plane Buffula every week, they have 5 differant regional olive oils en vrac, IItalian Mushroomsevery kind of pasta right down to Italian household soaps. http://berchicci.ca/
As well you have the great old school La Maison du Ravioli where a half dozen Italian Mama's put together the best pasta anywhere .Try their mushroom stuffed raviolis.2479 Charland.

Highest traffic farmer's markets in and around Montreal?

Without a truck you are going to pay big bucks at JTM,Atwater ect. I think you should try Finnegans in Hudson.Val David stops at 1pm so it would be hard to
make decent profit.I imagine top selling hours are from
11am-4pm.

Water Buffalo Yogurt

I thought that Saputo bought a Vermont herd and brought them back to Quebec to make their Bufala Cheese.

Steak & Eggs for sunday brunch

For an interesting twist on Steak and Eggs try Atelier Argentine's sunday brunch. They are where DNA used to be in Old Montreal.

ISO fresh horseradish root

I have been growing Horseradish in Ste Martine for years so we do have the climate to grow.In October you can find HR Root at many JTM vendors I know for a fact Jacques et Diane have it yearly. No good for this year and way early for 2015.

Piazza Tomasso's "Pizza Plus"

Piazza Tomasso pizzas were made by DaVinci Foods under a 3rd party agreement. The pizza is terrible Tommy Tomasso would be rolling in his grave to see what has happened to his good food that made his restaurant famous.

Pastry making course

The Baking Education Center at King Arthur Flour in Vermount is the place. They have weekend sessions with well known teachers. Last year Montreal bread/pastry icon James McGuire taught a weekend course. Check it out.

mont tremblant

Exactly my point. St Jovite and St Sauveur are both in a "freemarket"zone where they compete for your business.Its about time that skiiers put pressure on MT restos and STOP patronizing them even better tell them directly. Sorry I am so negitive but I hate being ripped off and MT is the king of that in the ski world.

mont tremblant

Mt Tremblant is a wasteland of overpriced mediocre restaurants.The reason for that is people who reside on site do not leave to go to St Donat (or elsewhere) the restaurant owners know that and have no pressure or pride to come up with anything good. Mt Tremblant's food is not worth wasting your money on, try to get a condo with a kitchen that is your best idea. The other option if you like great food and skiing is to go to Stowe where you have some of the best ski hill food in the northeast.

Marché Akhavan (restaurant area)

Akhavan imports Iranian caviar and is a dependable source of uncut/non mafiaized caviar.Ask for Ari the owner.They have their stock in a locked fridge behind the nuts counter.

Opening/Closings January to March 2014

There has been no press on Bier Markt that took over the Queue de Cheval building on Rene Levesque.The rent must cost a fortune and no advertising or PR very strange. Do they expect to live on Tourists.Has anybody been and what is it all about ?

Has anyone been to PF Chang Decarie?

This restaurant was built at that location to service Hampstead who do not venture down to Chinatown. With the closing of mediocre Hot and Spicy it left a gaping hole in the market and PF filled it with their own version of mediocre General Tao and tastless letuce wraps. Its just a fancy McDonalds.

Nutella from Italy

It may be delicious but not a healthy choice for kids.In France they are thinking about putting a warning on the bottle. Do some digging on Google and you will be able to get the facts.

Oranges for juicing...where?

I could stretch the season further if I liked South African Citrus. This year the boxes of Fla oranges are going for $28 and the Blood Oranges @$33.Those prices will go down as the season progresses.Also make sure to get some of his Florida Valencias at the end of April the best juice orange known to man !

Oranges for juicing...where?

The best place for boxes of Oranges (4/5 bushel) is Leopoldo on the South side of Jean Talon Market. Currently they have juicing oranges from Florida and California (Florida are better) Blood Oranges from Spain and Italian Blood Oranges should arrive next week.I squeeze my oranges everyday 7 months of the year and I get quality from him every visit.

Greek restaurants in Montreal

Josie has all the good Greek Restos. Milos for lunch at 20.13$ is the best quality=price offering in Montreal you cannot miss there. My next choice that Josie did not have is Barbounya on Laurier West a newcomer to Montreal with Turkish/Greek cuisine that has a nice balance of Fish and Meat.
