“Exceptional, one-of-a-kind experience”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

Run entirely by owner/chef Jacques Legros and his spouse, Au goût d'autrefois is one of those rare finds that you must take advantage of if you happen to pass nearby. Located on the island of Île d'Orléans, about twenty minutes from downtown Québec City, Au goût d'autrefois (A Taste of Yesteryear) is a country table at which is served the fresh and unadulterated products of the farm itself, with a little help from ingredients obtained elsewhere on the island. All dishes are poultry-based, with the birds being raised in a harmonious and chemical-free environment that ensures no additives of any kind ever reach the plate. Suitable for groups, the evening menus vary according to the number of courses, some of which include the farm's own foie gras obtained by means of a unique unforced feeding technique. For anyone concerned about organic farming and the conditions under which animals and poultry are raised, a visit to Au goût d'autrefois will prove inspiring, as well as very tasty! Reservations are required and the restaurant accepts largish groups as well as couples.

Ste-famille, Owner at Au gout d'autrefois, responded to this review, August 17, 2011
We are pleased that you have enjoyed our gastronomy of the region produced and prepared directly on our ecological farm. We are redoubling our efforts to provide our customers of food health of local gourmet flavoured cooked from the organic vegetables from our own gardens and the meat of our farms of geese, ducks, pheasants, turkeys wild and Guinea fowl.

Our ecological garden vegetables are produced naturally without any insecticide, pesticide, herbicide, or chemical fertilizers in respect of the environment and the health of our customers. Our herds are born and higher farm naturally also in respect of their well-being.

We are proud to offer our rustic table only foie gras produced on a farm without any forced feeding. We actually developed our ecological farm for more than 8 years our own environmentally non-forced feeding technique for the welfare of our geese and duck to also give the country table of our ancestral farm excellent ethical foie gras.

Our animals are born and high on the farm only from 5 natural grain that we choose to also give a unique flavour to our meat cooked on the farm at low temperature on periods of two days and without any added artificial flavour or spice.

Our native American inspired cuisine to discover the gastronomy of the terroir while you making discover food health prepared by us on the farm with love and with fine fat for our geese and ducks.

Yet once again please accept our thanks for taking the time to send your comments and appraisals.

Yours,

Jacques Legros and Lise Marcotte,
Ecological farmers and Chefs of terroir
