In the heart of the Laurentians, Maison de Soma continues to charm culinary enthusiasts, less than a year after its opening.

In our recent interview with Didier Lortie, one of the two owners of Maison de Soma, he shared his vision and the new features for the summer season of 2024.

An Idyllic Setting for a Seasonal Table

Situated on a vast 600-acre land, Maison de Soma offers more than just a meal: it is an immersion into the authenticity of the Québécois terroir. Maison de Soma

Visitors can enjoy dishes made with fresh ingredients, grown on-site, or handpicked from surrounding forests.

Didier emphasizes the importance of this connection with nature, which extends beyond the kitchen to the entire experience on the premises.

Maison de Soma's 2024 Summer Buvette: More Than Just an Outdoor Meal

This season, Maison de Soma has elevated the buvette experience to a whole new level. For the inauguration of the 2024 edition on May 25, the buvette does more than offer outdoor dining; it becomes a true hub of life.

Open from Wednesday to Sunday, this buvette promises unforgettable moments of conviviality against the picturesque backdrop of the Laurentian mountains. On Wednesdays and Sundays, the kitchen remains open until 7 PM, while on other days, it closes at 5 PM.

With the addition of an outdoor bar, guests can sip drinks prepared with homemade syrups made from plants and herbs from the garden, while admiring the sunset, making evenings from Wednesdays to Sundays truly magical.

New products also include "adult slushes", and iced alcoholic cocktails with a festive and original touch.

The collaboration with Boulangerie Jolifeu has resulted in special breads designed to accompany an innovative range of sandwiches, including those to be served with keftas, for example. The menu, which changes every 2-3 weeks, features garden vegetables, fresh soups, gourmet sandwiches, and grilled meats cooked on a plancha in a wood-fired oven.

The Tasting Menu: A Symphony of Flavors

The tasting menu, available Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, is more than a meal; it is a celebration of time, patience, and artisanal skill.

Each dish is a deep exploration of the unique flavors of the terroir, highlighting techniques such as fermentation and maturation.

Among the offerings, you can enjoy a Pidan egg accompanied by homemade chili oil and sourdough bread powder, followed by a smoked hay beer-battered fish beignet marinated in maple syrup and flower vinegar, served with soy milk mayonnaise. A highlight is the bison tartare enhanced with bison jerky, paired with raw oyster mushroom cream, grilled oyster mushrooms, and balsam fir gel, showcasing the restaurant's commitment to rich textures and deep flavors.
