All press releases Le Grand Brunch Mange ton Saint-Laurent! comes to Jean-Talon Market

Montreal’s public markets, in collaboration with the Mange ton Saint-Laurent! Collective and the Office Montréalais de la gastronomie, present Le Grand Brunch, a delicious, not-to-be-missed event on July 16. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., a gourmet meal will served in three seatings (10 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.). Ticket holders will enjoy a menu showcasing the bounty of the St. Lawrence with a six-course brunch developed by 11 acclaimed Montreal chefs. The event will take place in the city’s great temple of gastronomy, Jean-Talon Market. Tickets are now on sale for $110 for two people. Hurry, availability is limited!


“Fish and seafood from the St. Lawrence are still relatively little-known here, even though they’re popular internationally. With this first edition of Le Grand Brunch Mange ton Saint-Laurent!, we’re proud to help make our local products more accessible. And there’s no better way than to have some of our best chefs prepare them, bringing us closer to our river!” said Nicolas Fabien-Ouellet, executive director of Les Marchés publics de Montréal.


An entirely local experience

Chefs David Gauthier (Bar Saint-Denis), Paul Harry Toussaint (Kamúy), Olivier Louissaint (Chef Oli), Amine Nasrallah (Chaud devant!), Mehdi Brunet-Benkritly and Alex Dunberry-Perron (Marconi) and Charlotte Maurin, Magie Marier, Mathilde Bourin, Héra Schneider and Mia Robert (Ratafia) will have the honour of showcasing delicious products found only in the St. Lawrence with a six-course brunch.

The importance of discovering and eating local products

The Mange ton Saint-Laurent! collective works daily to help Quebecers discover and embrace the edible bounty of the St. Lawrence River as well as its Estuary and Gulf. Knowing that more than 80% of the St. Lawrence’s catch is exported to other provinces and countries, the Grand Brunch Mange ton Saint-Laurent!, presented in collaboration with the Office la gastronomie montréalaise, offers the public a chance to discover crustaceans, algae, molluscs and fish of exceptional quality and freshness.
