On Dec. 23, Oliver de Volpi, McGill’s Executive Chef, will be up to his elbows in flour as he and his team of volunteers from the McGill community (including students who can’t make it home for the holidays), prepare a giant batch of cookies to put a smile on the faces of Montreal’s less fortunate. The 3,000 cookies, including gingerbread and shortbread, will be donated to the Old Brewery Mission, along with other food items from McGill kitchens.

Warm and flavourful maple tarts are the perfect treat to satisfy your sweet craving. With McGill Student Housing and Hospitality Services’ Cabane-à-sucre themed Local Food Days just around the corner, it’s only fitting that we pay tribute to the Quebec tradition and send you home with a scrumptious dessert recipe. We’re sure that it will uplift your spirits and kick spring into full gear!
