Food. Just the word food makes you feel warm inside doesn’t it? We all love to indulge from time to time in the delicious foods we have come to know and love. On Aug. 31 you can give in to your cravings by attending the Festival de l’histoire de la cuisine en Estrie in Bury. The festival, which is organized by the Bury Historical and Heritage Society, is celebrating 150 years of cooking in the Eastern Townships region up until 1950. In partnership with the Townshippers’ Association, le Réseau du patrimoine anglophone du Québec, The Eaton Corner Museum, IGA-Cookshire, le bureau de la ministre Bibeau, the Town of Bury et l’Image de Bury, the Bury Historical Society brings attendees on a trip back in time while filling up their stomachs along the way. Festivalgoers will have the chance to discover the traditional dishes of the past with tastings taking place throughout the day. See full story in the Friday, Aug. 30 edition of The Outlet.
