5 Pork Brunch Dishes To Try At Chartier

Sharman - Tuesday, November 22, 2016

On Sunday I ventured south of Edmonton for brunch at Chartier: a rustic, Quebec French style brasserie in the heart of Beaumont. The dream child of owners Sylvia and Darren Cheverie, Chartier is the first successful restaurant Kickstarter campaign in Alberta, and the most successful restaurant Kickstarter in Canada.

At Chartier, Chef Steve Brochu has a constantly evolving menu that is worth leaving the big city and driving to Beaumont for. Alberta pork has a promenent place on the brunch menu, and Chef Brochu sources locally raised pork from City Life Farms near Westlock.

For my first brunch at Chartier I indulged in the breakfast poutine which included thick-cut bacon chunks hidden among fries, truffled hollandaise, cheese curds and a poached egg. The dish was so filling I was able to pack half of it up to enjoy again when I got home; I left anxious to come back and try more options on the menu.

Here are 5 City Life Farms pork dishes to try at Chartier:
