For its second year running, the ever expanding YUL EAT will be taking over the Quai de L'Horloge in the Old Port this Labour Day weekend for a full-on food and drink festival. Organized by Evenko and Les Premiers Vendredi, there will be plenty of chefs on hand taking part in cooking demonstrations, workshops, round table discussions, tastings, and collaborated meals this Saturday through Monday.

Participants include some of Montreal's finest culinary talents including Charles-Antoine Crête, Hugue Dufour, Chuck Hughes, Stefano Faita, Emma Cardarelli, Graziella Battista, Patrice Demers, Danny St-Pierre, Mehdi Brunet-Benkritly, John Winter Russell, Marc-Alexandre Mercier, Joe MercuriJonathan Lapierre-Réhayem, the list literally goes on and on. Admission is free (although select events require purchased tickets) and there will be a general store, cookbook fair, farmer's market and even a bread oven on site. With the food trucks rounding out the fest with a healthy dose of street eats, this is definitely a real Montreal food blowout.
