The general public may soon have a chance to indulge in a version of Martin Picard's famed, members-only fall hunter's feasts at Au Pied de Cochon. Diners will soon see wild game on menus across Montreal and Quebec, namely at the likes of Joe Beef, Toqué! and, of course, the foie gras poutine, duck in a can pusher on Duluth. All thanks to provisional approval from the province.

The "gastronomic adventure" is a plan to "to please the palates of discerning Quebec eaters and boost tourism." It will evolve gradually, but come fall, look for wild deer, muskrat, squirrel, beaver, and hare alongside that bavette, tartare and pavé de saumon.
