With taste buds by now Texas red, the visitors had al- most too many choices, from traditional dumplings to cro- codile hamburgers. Stepha- nie’s brought out the big grill for some tasty ribs while the Montréal smoked meat booth was emanating a delicatessen smell to die for. “The great thing is that you can taste dishes for the !rst time ever and !nish your meal with something more traditio- nal,” said Ottawa foodie Gregg Verbeek. “The little cheese and beef brochettes from La Cabane à Riz were really yum-

quilts and soap, I chugged down a beer and burger!” Organic food, fresh bread, ballpark pretzels, crafts and a little acoustic music, the Festival hit a home run with its 2014 edition. “Food and "avours in Sep- tember and beer for Ock- toberfest, Vankleek Hill is the place to be,” said John Dugas, with a smile. “I love it that they can turn eve- rything into a poutine and put the weirdest animal on a stick.
