A flavourful journey through Québec's food heritage, Sharing the Meal! explores the culinary traditions of Québec's regions and looks at how recipes and tastes are transmitted from one generation to the next. A delicious introduction to who we are!

An exhibition to whet your appetite! Québec's food heritage is one of fascinating diversity. From the culinary influences of the First Peoples to those of New France, from British contributions to the global tastes and local trends of today, Sharing the Meal! explores how we pass on our culinary knowledge and know-how.

The table is set: come join us! Visitors are also invited to share their family recipes and immerse themselves in Recueil de gestes pour nourrir ("A Collection of Nourishing Gestures"), a work by Québec artist Catherine Bélanger.

This onsite exhibition is an extension of the virtual exhibition of the same name. Visit it on the Web at: mangerensemble.mcq.org/index-eng

Produced in partnership with the Canada Research Chair on Ethnological Heritage at Université Laval and Idéeclic, as part of the Virtual Museum of Canada Program.

Artist Catherine Bélanger is a beneficiary of the Première Ovation support measure from Ville de Québec and Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec. Recueil de gestes pour nourrir ("A Collection of Nourishing Gestures") is a coproduction of Avatar, centre en art audio et électronique and La Bande Vidéo de Québec.
