Launched on the occasion of the 375th anniversary of Montreal, this linen tells the story of what is undoubtedly the most famous candy of Quebec. It was invented by Marguerite Bourgeoys, the first teacher in Montreal who would have created this treat to attract young French and Native people. It will be remembered that it is the Sainte-Catherine, patroness of girls to marry, that is traditionally made taffire. Who will be surprised that this festival is underlined by Marguerite Bourgeoys, she who was in charge of the education of the Daughters of the King, who came to the Colony to take a husband?
