In Montreal, there is a list of select restaurants that have the entire world buzzing. That list is as short as can be and you have to be really good to be on it. After being featured on television, printing its own cookbook, and expanding its reach to touch our province’s culture, this restaurant is probably the best one in the entire city. Of course, the restaurant I’m talking about is aptly named Au Pied de Cochon.

On this particular week, I’ve been fighting my first illness of 2012. The fact that I was under the weather for the better part of the week really affected things here at the GBS. I put off the burger I was planning to do this week. There was one thing that I couldn’t put off, a reservation for another stop at Happening Gourmand. So, I was undertaking a whole demanding regimen of various medications, some normal and others, very much Chinese. By the time this evening rolled around, I was very much ready to enjoy something that I was really looking forward to.
