World-renowned chef, author and Emmy winning television personality Anthony Bourdain visits Quebec in the next episode of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," airing Sunday, May 5, at 9 p.m. ET. Follow the show on Twitter and Facebook.
This week, Anthony Bourdain bundles up - then bundles up again - to head to the Great White North where he finds nostalgia for the cuisine ancienne in the French-speaking province of Quebec.
Amid the snow, ice fishing, rogue hockey games and beaver snaring, he finds a deeply impassioned community, hell-bent on preserving their francophone identity that is culturally, spiritually and linguistically different from the rest of Canada.
Chef Martin Picard of Au Pied de Cochon, and David McMillan and Frédéric Morin of Joe Beef share their pride and affection for the old world charm of their beloved land and show Bourdain how they honor the tradition of the French table.
As McMillan says, "You always have to travel well and eat properly."
