I’ve been reading Richard Morais’ The Hundred-Foot Journey. With his descriptions of the smells and colours and bursting tastes of food in mind, I went off to Old Montreal. It’s an immersive and exhilarating place where consumption is not just necessity, but art, too.
The hum of a crowd may have drawn you to a café with exotic flags and awnings that stretch over the sidewalks. Or, perhaps you have your own secret haunt – a favourite restaurant, tucked in the corner of a quiet old neighborhood. Wherever you are, there are those first moments of interaction, of smells seeping through doorways and open windows, tastes pulsing like static through the air. These are the places we want to know about.
Write a description or link to a photo of your haven of taste in the comments to this post. Let us know where your hundred-foot journey takes you, then enter to win one of five copies of The Hundred-Foot Journey, by Richard Morais.
