The Canadian province of Quebec has 8,000 maple syrup companies
Canadians are infinitely polite and always kind people. The popular Canadian maple syrup is known all over the world. The maple leaf is a recognizable symbol of Canada. It first appeared on the coat of arms of the province of Quebec and only in 1965 was present on the national flag of Canada. Since 1995, the most famous maple syrup farm “Chaz Dany” is located in the poetic city of Trois-Rivières. It is a group of rustic log cabins that offer syrup and homemade food prepared almost the same as in the early 19th century (when the first syrup farms were created).
The province of Quebec has 8,000 companies in which 13,300 people annually produce about 60 million maple syrup. Maple syrup is the most popular natural sweetener but also a major tourist attraction in Canada. Syrup farms are called “cabane ā sucre” or “sugar huts”. These are most often family farms where you can try homemade maple syrup and an unusual maple syrup candy “tire sur la neige” (drawing in the snow) – soft candy made of hot syrup rolled in cold compacted snow. In these huts you can buy syrup, eat and sleep. Most tourists do not miss visiting these huts while touring the province of Quebec. Maple syrup is the largest export product while maple leaf is present on the Canadian flag. The Québec region produces 70% of the world’s maple syrup and 92% of Canadian. In Francophone Québec, maple syrup is put in literally all sweet and savory dishes and even in baked beans similar to Boston baked beans with molasses.
Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America and the only fortified city of Mexico whose walls still exist today. Quebec City or Ville de Quebec is the cradle of French Canada and a true tourist pearl. The whole city is full of charming shops and restaurants. Every year from the beginning of November to the end of February, Quebec City is completely transformed into a huge snowy Christmas village full of colorful decorations, cribs, Christmas trees. St. Lawrence is a river that flows through the city. The old part of the city is dominated by the castle-hotel Le Chateau Frontenac, built in 1893 in the chateau style, especially inspired by the French Renaissance and the Loire castles. The hotel is an icon of the city and the guided tour is around 23 Canadian dollars. Guided tours are also available to non-hotel guests.
