Main Courses

“Anyone can make you enjoy the first bite of a dish, but only a real chef can make you enjoy the last.” - Francois Minot

Regardless of the type of cuisine, the main dish should always be the plat de resistance, a soul-warming meal that will keep the bigger appetites circling for seconds. A well planned main course should be anticipated, and aim to satisfy and delight the diner. This is usually the heartiest or most filling dish of a meal, whether you are entertaining a crowd or making dinner for two.

Cubano Sandwich

The Cubano sandwich is much more than a fancy ham and cheese sandwich, it is the champion of all ham and cheese sandwiches; elevated by pickles, pork roast, and tangy dijon mustard.

Mme Benoit’s Tourtière
Share Share

Tourtière is a French Canadian meat pie which is traditionally served at Christmas. It may be made from pork, beef or a combination of meats sometimes including veal. Different regions in Quebec have their own traditional recipes. Some regions use game such as hare or duck rather than beef and pork. The pies should not have too much filling as they are just a part of the whole traditional Christmas dinner. It's usually served with tomato ketchup. This recipe is the creation of Mme Jehane Benoit, a famous Quebec cooking expert who received the Order of Canada.
