Reg­u­lar cus­tomers of Levac & Sons butcher shop, in Dal­housie Sta­tion, Québec, know that its pro­pri­etor, Stéphane Levac, has a rep­u­ta­tion for making some of the finest home­made meat dishes in the area. “My spe­cialty is home­made stuff,” Mr. Levac says. Those spe­cial­ties are sausages, cre­tons (a French paté made of minced pork and spices) and, of course, tour­tière – a French Cana­dian meat pie made with two thirds pork and one third beef.

The shop, lo­cated at 165 Prin­ci­pale, has been pro­duc­ing fine qual­ity dishes for three gen­er­a­tions. The store was founded in 1929 by Mr. Levac’s grand­fa­ther, Do­minic. Mr. Levac took over the store in 1990. Two years later, when the nearby Dal­housie Bak­ery closed its doors, Mr. Levac took over its meat pie busi­ness.

He’s still go­ing strong to­day. The store is open 8-7 ev­ery day (85 on week­ends) and it also sells gro­ceries, beer and wine.

Mr. Levac says he’d like to dis­pel any ru­mours that his store is clos­ing. He expects to re­main in busi­ness for quite a few years.
