Quebec Birthday, 39 again

A meal at IXbistro in Quebec City

I did it. I ate horse. Don't tell my kids.  Outstanding texture in the seared meat and textural and flavor compliments in the garnish 

Trout: on celeriac purée with a tart fennel slaw and blood orange hollandaise

Foie as dessert: spongy white bread layered with brown sugar cream, topped with (macerated, sautéed, frozen & shaved) foie gras and puffed quinoa
