Spring is right around the corner and EC Montreal is so excited to present its April calendar of events! Every April, EC Montreal’s theme is gastronomy!
When EC Montreal created its English and French plus programme, the obvious choice was gastronomy because the city of Montreal is known for its fabulous restaurants, culinary schools and food markets.
Throughout the month of April, we will be introducing our students to local foods and flavors as well as leading culinary workshops such as sushi making and cupcake decorating.
The first week, we will lead a sushi making workshop. We will show our students how they can roll their very own sushi with their favorite ingredients!
The following week we will give our students a taste of our local food; poutine! Poutine is the ultimate comfort food made from fries, gravy and cheese curds. It is sinfully delicious! It was invented in the province of Quebec and is now known world-wide! Even the fanciest of restaurants offer a type of poutine on their menus. Garde Manger, in Old Montreal, for example, serves a lobster poutine! We will be hosting very special EC employees this week and cannot wait to introduce them to EC Montreal’s complimentary activities!
On April 17, we will lead a cupcake decorating activity. Each table in the student lounge will offer a selection of naked cupcakes and different toppings so students can be creative and produce their very own cupcakes!
On April 24, EC Montreal will host a tea and conversation activity where we will enjoy a selection of teas while we get to know one another.
In addition to our weekly complimentary activities, EC will organize an outing to Fairmount Bagel in the Plateau Mont-Royal, a tour of the Jean-Talon market in Little Italy, a Smoked meat group dinner, a hike up Mount-Royal and a visit to Saint-Joseph’s Oratory in time to celebrate Easter week.
The weekend activities include excursions to Toronto / Niagara Falls and Quebec City.
What a delicious month we look forward to at EC Montreal! Bon appetit! Learn English in Montreal and experience our beautiful, cultured, and delicious city!
