For more than twenty years I have been in charge of our "cuisine"... Assisted by an excellent hand-picked team who assist me brilliantly, it is always with pleasure that we concoct delicious dishes for our guests.
As a member of the Flavours Trail of Charlevoix, we are proud to use many local products of our region and respect our planet but, in particular, we take advantage of excellent local products such as veal, lamb, emu, pork, chicken, duck, rabbit, guinea fowl, trout, fine cheeses, and savoury fruits and vegetables.
Our house speciality is Charlevoix veal Osso-bucco, a soft and delicious dish allying meat and vegetables... I particularly like serving simmered dishes such as our mijoté of lamb Madeira, emu with little vegetables, leg of duck as well as pork Osso-bucco with rosemary.
Of cours this does not prevent me from proposing excellent grills such as filet mignon, porkl chops, "bavette" (bib) of veal or seafood sautés with scallops and shrimp.
Also, I like to propose old Charlevoix and Quebecois recipes such as our soup of gourganes, small meat pies, homemade ketchup, poultry liver pâté, as well as homemade fruit or sugar pies. I find these dishes so conforting!
In addition to all these choices, with certain desserts we also offer a small cookie in the forme of a schooner in honor of the maritime heritage of Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive.
In conclusion, regional products, along with old fashioned and current recipes are our sources of inspiration!
Le Mont Saint-Joseph Dining room
It's the name of a schooner which inspired us when we decided to name the dining room after our 25th anniversary as owners of the inn. Mont Saint-Joseph for Saint-Joseph-de-la-rive, located on Saint-Joseph's cape ans Saint-Joseph, patron Saint of the village.
