the tradition of the sugar shack is as old as maple syrup here in quebec. where 70% of the world's supply comes from. deeply embedded in the maple syrup outdoor lumberjack lifestyle is the cabin in the woods, where maple sap is collected and boiled down to syrup. over time, many of these cabins became informal eating houses, dining halls for workers and a few guests, where a lucky few could sit at communal tables and enjoy the bounty of the trees and forests around them. marte has taken this to what is somehow its logical conclusion and insane extreme. creating his own, open only during maple season and serving food stemming directly from those humble, yet hearty roots. it makes perfect sense in one way.
