Since 1998, Olive + Gourmando has been a must-see destination for locals and tourists who roam the streets of Old Montreal.
Cet établissement fondé par les chefs Dyan Solomon et Eric Girard, a donné vie à un secteur et a participé au développement et à la revitalisation de ce quartier en y insufflant une âme...We have been neighbors of this charming cafe for many years, finding comfort and happiness.Through our accounts instagram , we became everyday virtual friends with Dyan, brightening our days by sharing images and comments.
Go follow his page @dyansolomon , it is a daily happiness in image and in stories !
Designing a vinegar recipe and undertaking its marketing without training or culinary credibility could be frowned upon. When the Lemon Basil vinegar was ready to launch, I took my courage in both hands and asked Dyan for his advice and help. The response was spontaneous and generous. Dyan était au rendez-vous pour nous appuyer.
Quickly, our vinegar made its debut at Olive + Gourmando rue St-Pierre and in its virtual store ...
Josiane, manager of the establishment and her coffee team opened the door for us and we felt at home ... For us it was like entering the Montreal Culinary Hall of Fame ...
So while dreaming, we absolutely must tell you about his new recipe book published in November 2019 and which won the gold medal from the Lauréats des Saveurs du Canada.
150 coffee recipes, ranging from salads to desserts ... What to say ... beautifully illustrated, inspiring and inspired, we dive into the intimate world of Olive + Gourmando, its artisans, its customers and its history. You can get lost in it as in the streets of Old Montreal, and depending on the pages, change the menu you had chosen so much the recipes are all tempting and unpretentious. Certainly, we will come back with a recipe in an upcoming article ...
Today, what we celebrate is Dyan's generosity, passion, and talent. But what we admire even more about her is her super power , that of MAKING THE ORDINARY EXTRAORDINARE!
Thank you Dyan ... and see you soon!
