MONTREAL - It's a menu fit for — and partly prepared by — royalty.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will feast on locally infused dishes and wines when they visit a reputed cooking school in Montreal this weekend.
Professors at the Quebec Tourism and Hotel Institute say Prince William and his wife Kate are going to help prepare the meal.
The couple is expected to stop briefly at different stations in the kitchen.
Among the items on the menu: Quebec foie gras on a toasted brioche served with apple cider jelly; loin of Charlevoix lamb and Iles de la Madeleine lobster, prepared two ways.
All courses are complemented by selections from Quebec wineries.
A group of cooking professors and students have been preparing for a few months for the royal couple's visit.
Prince William and Kate are to dine with Quebec Premier Jean Charest and his wife Micheline. The Premier and his wife are said to also be taking part in the cooking course.
While they dine, a protest by Quebec sovereigntists is expected outside.
