Martin Picard, Au Pied de Cochon

Montreal, Canada

“I just love foie gras. I think I was born with a foie gras in place of a liver.”

Au Pied de Cochon, renowned for elevating poutine and serving decadent portions of foie gras, has amassed a cult following. Martin Picard infuses Québécois comfort food with skilled technique and creativity. The result is a feast of unpretentious, indulgent nose-to-tail eating that embodies excess in the most delicious way and highlights the culinary traditions of the area. At his Sugar Shack, he has transformed a working maple syrup cabin into a venue that is equally about preserving regional heritage as it is a creative restaurant concept.

Plogue à Champlain with Foie Gras  (2004)

“A ‘ploye’ (or ‘plogue’) is a traditional dish in northwestern New Brunswick, particularly in the Republic of Madawaska. It is essentially a pancake made of buckwheat flour, without eggs or butter, and cooked on one side only. But here again, we must exercise caution when trying to pin down the official recipe, since the original ploye continues to elude archaeologists.

“The PDC variant of this dish was born one evening, during a hunting trip, when Martin Picard and restaurateur Champlain Charest were discussing the art of fine cuisine and began to fantasize about the menu for the next morning’s breakfast. From that day on, the ‘ploye’ has been one of the most popular foie gras dishes on the menu at Au Pied de Cochon.”
