The Gourmet Route
Over the course of the past 10 years, the Gourmet Route became the first «from farm to table» tour in the Capitale-National region and is now Quebec’s reference in the field.
Gourmet Route’s mission is to promote member businesses associated to agrotourism and gourmet tourism of the Capitale-Nationale.
Producers, processors, chefs and grocers combine pleasure, passion and know-how to offer a unique experience in agrotourism and gourmet tourism.
Agrotourism is a complementary tourism activity to agriculture and takes place on a farm. It links agriculture producers with tourists and excursionists, allowing them to discover the agriculture environment and its production by the welcome and information provided by their hosts.
Gourmet tourism goes beyond the fine cuisine experience. It includes culinary activities, agrotourism and food specially designed for tourists that highlight food and beverages and provide the opportunity to discover and recognize the talent and know-how of local artisans.
The Gourmet Route is an initiative of the Centre locaux de développement (CLD) of Côte-de-Beaupré, Ile d’Orléans, la Jacques-Cartier, Portneuf and Quebec city.
