Air Canada enRoute


Poultry spots are going over to the dark side.


I live in Montreal. My assignment, in five words Funny, conceptual and greasy chicken. Best drink in the best bar A Ti-ponch at Ti-Agrikol in Montreal. If I had a year off, I would visit more of my country, including Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundla­nd, Tofino in B.C. and Lake Louise in Alberta. When not taking photos for Air Canada enRoute, I shoot for companies like Le Creuset Canada and Natrel, as well as publicatio­ns like Trois fois par jour and Dinette.

Crispy fried-chicken sandwich makers have dropped the white meat obsession in favour of a whole-bird approach. Austin’s Tumble 22 will set your heart (and mouth) ablaze with Nashville-inspired hot chicken thighs topped with tangy kale slaw and pickles. Toronto’s Union Chicken serves free-range buttermilk­dipped breaded thighs in a sandwich drizzled with homemade ranch sauce. And, in Salt Lake City, Pretty Bird is the word thanks to their boneless dark meat bundled in a buttered bun and served alongside crinkle-cut fries, dusted with nostalgia.
