A couple of weeks ago, we embarked on our most ambitious food adventure to date, as Gary & Sandy headed to ski country to spend the better part of a week feeding the enthusiastic participants of Driveteq‘s road trip to Le Circuit Mont Tremblant.
We hitched the DCS Appliances event trailer up to a stunning Toyota Tundra TRD-PRO which was clad in an eye catching shade of grey called Cement. Everything about this truck is tough and it proved to be the perfect choice for a long drive with a full load. Interestingly, the Tundra got better fuel economy while towing fully loaded at highway speeds, than it does empty around town. A heavy right foot and a raunchy exhaust note might have something to do with that!
Our first stop once we arrived in neighbouring St. Jovite, was to meet up with the butcher we had previously contacted to order a pig. Chef Fred Samuel at Boucherie Les Mercenaires Culinaires is a meat pirate who loves BBQ as much as we do!
Our “dorm” for the week was a group of stunning chalets a few minutes from the Mont Tremblant pedestrian village called Panache. I dare say that our parking area was the most exciting spot in the area that week and the Tundra/DCS event rig fit right in surrounded by exotic cars.
Each day started with a proper Le Mans style breakfast featuring pastries from the incredible La Bergandoise, a tiny subterranean patisserie on Rue de Saint Jovite.
The food highlight of the week was definitely pig roast night, where our guests tucked into a fabulous organic porker which was bred on a farm just an hour away.
Of course we were there for the driving fun first and the Driveteq gang brought some incredible machinery.
Local photographer JF Leclerc joined us for the pig roast to capture some of the party fun!
