Montreal Fries, W. Bridgewater

Please report your finding, I have been wondering if it's worth the trip!

I tried Modern Apizza (New Haven)

Where is it in Ellsworth?

The Galley in Sullivan, ME

Ethnic food in Maine! I remember thinking how long is "The MEX" going to last when it opened in the early 70's? I guess there is a Mexican Place in Brooksville ME now.
I think I will stop at the Galley as well!

Tourtieres; French-Canadian Meat Pies [split from New England board]

Taken from La cuisine traditionnelle en Acadie 1975 Cook book from New Brunswick. As stated in this board many make them on Christmas but are also served on New Years day!
Turtiere is made many ways we have only talked about ground pork and meat but chunks of the same and Chicken and Rabbit are also used.
So the answer is every region of Quebec and the Maritimes does not make it the same way: it varies as much in the ingredient as it does in it the way the crust is prepared. A distinct difference exists between northern New Brunswick meat pies, on the one hand, and those from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island on the other hand. In the long run it makes trying
different pies more exciting. As hinted by Bacchus in some French Canadian Families my life would be in Jeopardy for Sharing the Family
recipe with anyone, But being proud of my Acadien Culture and hoping
to share it... food recipes is a way I do it.
To be honest in 35 year of passing out the recipe, No one has made it
for me to try it.

Sudbury, MA with the mother-in-law

I think I have the place! how about the halfway cafe in on the Marlboro and Sudbury line? It's Kid friendly, Parent friendly and hopfully Mother-in Law friendly. They have a large menu of all types of food. Try it the worst that can
happen is she'll hate her food ( being Crabby anyway) but changes you'll
love your meal and the kids will too!
