    How about a brainstorm of ideas for the next Cheftalk reunion location? Seattle would be great - or even Italy, as Jim suggested.

    Definitely Canada gets my vote. Lots to see and do here. My friend from New York who visited Montreal for the first time recently, swears that the most beautiful guys and gals in the world reside in Montreal. How about them apples? ;)

    ..Oh, and great food too!

    Montreal is a great idea. Anneke, you could show us all around the city and introduce us to its unique culinary delights.

    I've left Mtl 4 years ago so I'm sure much has changed since. But between Kimmie and Isa, I think we have that covered! (and I'll do my best too)

    I'd recommend Toronto but Montreal has a much cozier athmosphere, not to mention that everything costs about a third less. Old-Montreal was my ol' stomping ground. As far as I'm concerned, for a weekend it's got everything that you could want!

    I have never been to Canada,
    But if the freinds here on cheftalk are any indication of the type of people that are in Canada I would really love to come.

    I look forward to a tour of Montreal by Kimmie,Anneke and Isa.

    I think I speak for the 3 of us CC when I say we'd be honoured!

    ..and yes, that's 'honoured' with a 'u', eh?! ;)

    I'll start saving my pennies and cross my fingers for a good date (on the calendar, that is! :blush: ) I'll have to practice my French, with is rusty, to say the least! Bet I can get my husband to come along this time!

    C'est fantastique!


    Montreal is a great city. Charms of old Europe right next door. Great food, nice shopping and nice people.

    For more on Montreal, check out the visitor’s guide.

    I'm sure Kimmie will agree that we both could help plan activities, find hotel, suggest restaurants, take everyone on a culinary shopping trip around town and help with whatever else you all have in mind.

    The Government of Quebec will also be happy to have you come visit and will send you tourist information should you ask them.

    If it's in Montreal, I'll be there. I've been there 6 or 7 times. That must say something about what a great city it is.

    I hope that wherever the next reunion is, it's not around the time I deliver baby momoreg, or I won't be able to go!

    But we still have time to negotiate. I can always bribe you guys with sweets, can't I?

    I love Montreal!
    People there are so friendly and nice. I have been practicaly everywhere, I have visited the five continents, but Montreal is one of my best travel destinations and the natural beauty of Canada it's so...
    I haven't seen such a Nature before!!!!

    On of the main reasons for going back to the States is to visit Canada again!

    Here's an unrealistic thought!
    Let's rent a tour bus and go from Montreal up to Nova Scotia and then work our way back across Canada to CoolJ's house in Kamloops. BC is beyond Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Chrose, that bus is hilarious.

    I have never been ANYWHERE in Canada, which is downright shameful. So it would be great to go and meet people who know the town.
    I've also wanted to check out Seattle for a long time now - it's supposed to be a great town, too- I think we have a few Cheftalk folks out there, don't we?

    Of course, my vote goes to Montreal. The year after, we could go out West and meet with CoolJ!

    Oh there's also our Visitors' Tax Refund program! Interested?

    And Cape, it will be such a treat to show you around...




    ;)

    I need the names of some great B&Bs in Montreal.
    Also, Any wonderful Bistros or cafes you can recommend.
    Raclette,warm potatoes and cornichons with grain mustard would set me at ease. Perhapes with Vouvrey
