On the La Cabane à Sucre Millette Sugar Shack Chef Deck says:
I love St-Faustin Quebec for the go carting, the occasional Mont Blanc playground excursion, the great 100% Boeuf, the short lived saloony strip joint (which unfortunately I never got to experience and I can’t remember the name for the life of me), and in the spring for the best dang sugar shack of all!
Chef Deck’s tricks for sugaring off…
1) Starve yourself for at least 3 hours….the longer you can hold out the better!
2) Take a large enema
3) Wrap yourself in Saran Wrap and take a 2 hour sauna while doing foot raises
4) Do half a push up
5) Do three quarters of a sit-up
6) Put on a pair of sweat pants
7) Put on a wife beater
8 ) Put on a pair of slippers
9) Drink a table spoon of olive oil to coat your stomach.
Now that you’re ready, here’s some of the porky sugar shack food you can expect to eat: mini hot dogs in maple syrup, fluffy omelet in skillet pan, oreilles de crisse (my personal favorite deep fried lard chips), creton, smoked maple syrup ham, maple baked beans with lard, crepes with cream sugar sauce, and sugar pie (all must be covered in copious amounts of maple syrup I should add). After eating about a pig and a half, having half a stroke, and a heart attack, you get to stroll outside. This is where you get fresh hot maple syrup on snow, and can prepare to die. If you’re in shape you can also walk around the grounds and see how they tap the trees, boil the syrup and make the maple yummy stuff. Sugaring off brings back so many memories (RIP Lake Manitou one that you could SkiDoo to) and La Cabane à Sucre Millette will always remain one of Chef Deck’s favourite spring workouts!
