YUL Eat is back to give you your yearly foodgasm in Montreal.

YUL Eat, happening in Old Port from September 3rd until September 5th, will feature food tastings, a speaker series, culinary classes, and a latte art challenge.

Chefs from some of the most popular restaurants in Montreal like Leche Desserts, La Distillerie, and Grumman ‘78 will all be at the festival’s speaker series spilling their foodie secrets. Culinary classes will range in topic from “Ravioli and Homemade Sauce” to “Urban Beekeeping.” Finally, 10 latte art experts from Quebec will duke it out for the top spot at the Natrel Latte Art Challenge that is taking place each day of the festival at 2:00pm.

Overall, 35 chefs are set to attend this food event and for three days straight, Old Port will temporarily be home to 22 different food stands.

A farmer’s market will be set up in Old Port each day of the festival from 11 am to 9 pm, the Maille Flavour Studio will host free food workshops, and there will even be a waiter’s race in which teams of 4 waiters will have to run through an obstacle course while holding a tray with glasses in hand.
