Quebec, Canada

A short drive from Quebec City, a growing network of artisanal producers (600 and counting) has banded together to form the Gourmet Route (www.gourmetroute.com), along the banks of the St. Lawrence River. Go on a bee safari and taste wild honey at the Musée de l'Abeille (8862 Blvd. Ste.-Anne, Château-Richer; 418/824-4411; www.musee-abeille.com). To sample raw-milk blue cheese, head to La Maison d'Affinage Maurice Dufour (1339 Blvd. Mgr.-de-Laval, Baie-St.-Paul; 418/435-5692). For a liqueur fix, there's Cassis de l'Isle Ensorceleuse Monna et Fils (723 Chemin Royal, St.-Pierre, Île d'Orléans; 418/828-1057). End your trip at Monastère de la Croix Glorieuse(125 Rang Ste.-Philomène, La Malbaie; 418/439-4611), where fruit-jelly candy is made by the resident monks; stick around for mass to repent your gluttony. STAY The 19th-century Fairmont Le Château Frontenac (1 Rue des Carrières, Quebec City; 800/441-1414; www.chateaufrontenac.com; doubles from $288) is built on a bluff overlooking Old Quebec. DON'T MISS A meal at Les Saveurs Oubliées (350 Rang St.-Godefroy, Les Éboulements; 418/635-9888; dinner for two $60), which serves lamb raised on the restaurant's farm.
