WTGN: Montreal

F&W Feb 2009 fig. a: inside

We were pretty excited to receive our February 2009 issue of Food & Wine today. Kitchens? Love 'em. Comfort food? Who can argue with comfort food, right? We certainly can't. Winter? Yeah, we know a little about that. I mean, this is the view outside the window as I write:

(And you wonder why we're so fixated on comfort food?)

Now, we haven't had a chance to try out any of the recipes yet, but we also knew a little about the content of this month's issue.

WTGN Montreal fig. c: "Where to Go Next: Montreal"

You see, there's a short piece in there called "Where To Go Next: Montreal" which offers 11 tips on where to find some of Montreal's most tantalizingly tasty eats (including AEB's 2008 Restaurant of the Year, La Salle à Manger), and we can honestly say that we stand behind each and every suggestion.

Look for the issue at your nearest newsstand, or find it online here and here.

Oh, one more thing: if you want to wait until after the thaw to pay our fair city a visit, we fully understand, but those of us who live here know that much of Montreal's cuisine tastes all the better in the dead of winter. Seriously.

Hooray for winter in Montreal! Makes me miss my home city and wish, perhaps irrationally, that all the green around me could turn into a winter wonderland.
