Un Chef À L’Érable: 22 Good Reasons To Go

My friend Mayssam from Will Travel For Food recently invited me to join her at Un Chef à l’Érable. This year marks the 4th edition of Chef Laurent Godbout urban/reinvented sugar shack.

The menu is definitely not a traditional sugar shack menu but if you feel like having a different experience, directly in Montreal, Un Chef à l’Érable is an amazing event for you.

If you want to have an idea of what it looks like in video, I recommend watching my friend Eve video


Here are 22 good reasons to go to Un Chef à l’Érable and enjoy this scrumptious, maple-infused menu.

1. Mason Jar Cocktail Rack; how Pinterest can it get? So cute!
