FOOD SHOPPING FOR FERREIRA CAFÉ WITH CHEF ROBERTA SUDBRACK

What’s the first thing famous chefs want to do when they visit a city? Check out the markets, of course. And with top-rated Brazilian chef Roberta Sudbrack, in Montreal to cook at Ferreira Café, it was no different…

A STELLAR VIEW AT THE DELTA CENTRE-VILLE

One of the perks of being a Montreal Insider blogger is that I get to discover all the city’s hidden secrets and overlooked treasures. The Delta Centre-Ville is one such gem.

LOVE ON THE MAIN

Montreal’s main drag, Boulevard St-Laurent (also known as The Main) is a feast for the senses in any season; but with snow sparkling under the streetlights and the soft glow of restaurants, bars, cafes and music venues spilling out into the winter night, winter might be the most romantic season of all…

If you stroll along Saint-Paul Street, it’s not hard to see why many dub the city of Montreal the “Paris of the North.” The narrow cobblestone streets, Old World architecture, French signs and – mais oui! – the fantastic shopping, are all reminiscent of the fabled City of Light…

MISS AMERICA IN MONTREAL

I tried. Short of wrestling Teresa Scanlan to the ground, I did my very best to wiggle my way into wearing the new Miss America’s tiara. Alas, I was told that, other than the Beauty Queen herself, only “little girls” could wear the sparkly headdress. I did, however, bring something for her to wear…
