Sugar Shack (cabane à sucre) at The Beehive!

In Quebec, maple syrup isn't just something you drizzle on pancakes. It's an excuse to sit down for a feast at a Sugar Shack or "cabane à sucre," where just-tapped maple sap is boiled until it's transformed into sugary syrup. Hundreds of sugar shacks lie just outside Montreal and Quebec City, and many have massive dining halls, where families sit at communal tables and are fed an endless parade of simple country cooking often accompanied by a live band playing traditional folk music (similar to Cajun music) and dancing.
