It’s kind of like speed dating for food.

Sixty-four pop-up restaurants, food trucks and kiosks offered their best stuff at the Old Port’s Quai de l’Horloge for YUL Eat.

The food festival wrapped up its fourth edition this year, showcasing the brand new Parcours Gourmand.

Housed under the Old Port’s Hangar 16, the circuit gave an insight to the farm-to-table cycle.

From showcasing the land’s best to what the city’s best chefs create with it.

“We did a cotton candy with some beet juice, some maple sugar then inside we have a bonbon au foie gras,” Mousso chef Antonin Mousseau said.

Plus the drinks to wash it all down from wine to locally-produced gin and vodka.

“People love seeking out local products so we’re showcasing everything that we make here,” Cirka Distilleries’ Paul Cirka said.

For those who wanted to go even deeper into the culinary experience, a variety of hands-on workshops were available: wine-tasting and cooking.
