le canard libéré• 14 comments •
Since neither of us ordered the fois gras poutine at Au Pied de Cochon, when we saw it on the menu at Le Canard Libéré, it had to be sampled. Le Canard Libéré is a gourmet store that we pop into whenever we can to pick up ingredients. Although it's focus is selling duck products (that are made from ducks raised locally in Brome Lake), they have a variety of foods and kitchen items. The store also has a tiny little restaurant with a few seats. In addition to the poutine, we ordered a duck burger with fries (cooked in duck fat, of course). Both meals were more than we could handle and were stuffed after a few bites.
They're often cooking up something to sample, near the entrance, to encourage people to incorporate duck products into their meals. We always leave with a recipe, but have yet to attempt any at home. It's safe to say that we've eaten more duck in the last few months than we have in our entire lives!
