Behind every great chef lies a story. This fall, PHI is glad to present the second edition of Soundbites, a culinary experience completed by an audio recording to accompany your meal and guide you through a multisensorial journey. We’ve teamed up with three restaurants in Montreal to bring an intimate outing to these restaurants straight to the comfort of your own home.
Let yourself be taken away on a culinary journey while the chefs tell you their stories, and complete their three-course service with a soundtrack carefully selected for the occasion. We invite you to enjoy a menu that is meticulously designed, all the while listening to the audio experience, provided by the PHI Centre, all of which is combined to create a true culinary voyage adapted to our new reality.
This fall, let yourself be swept away by the delectable cookery and the inspiring tales of Maria-José de Frias (Le Virunga), brothers Akim and Abdel Acacia (Piklìz), and Danny St Pierre (Accommodation Danny).
The second edition of Soundbites is proud to present Le Virunga, a Congolese restaurant which carefully blends local products and contemporary pan-African recipes to create a comforting culinary voyage. Chef Maria-José de Frias’ story mixes culture, travel, and integrity to create a heart-warming, mouth-watering experience.
“Tonight, we traveled through sound and flavor thanks to you. In these hard times, it did us so much good!”- Client
The Piklìz restaurant, created by two Canadian brothers from Haitian origins, Akim and Abdel Acacia, is celebrating its first anniversary this year. Based on a strong family story and heritage, Piklìz is the result of strong entrepreneurial and management skills as well as family recipes, the two strengths which, combined, led to this delectable Caribbean fusion.
“Excellent meal and beautiful, moving audio experience to accompany it all. Thank you for introducing us to the Acacia brothers’ cooking.”- Client
Finally, PHI is proud to feature, for the second time around, chef Danny St-Pierre. With 30 years of cooking experience under his belt, Danny has decided to return to Montreal to reconnect with local cuisine. He puts a modern twist on local cuisine to create a newly revisited cuisine in his latest restaurant, Accommodation Danny.
