We just returned from Montréal. The main purpose was to celebrate the wedding of our niece Margaret Lipsey to Chris Kassab. They’re both chefs, and the wedding was held in a 30’s vintage restuarant, the Lion D’or. Margaret and Chris planned the wedding (Margaret even made marshmallows for the late night chocolate bar), so I took a picture of her behind the coat check.
I also got to visit friend and colleagues Daniel Lemire and Anna MacLaughlin, with whom I worked at the Canadian National Research Council, which was great fun. The weather was clear and cold, but we hit a major winter storm on our way home, forcing us to stay an extra night in a hotel on the way back. All in all, a good trip, and a chance to brush up on some of my favourite aspects of Canadian culture.
