We stayed there over Canada Day yet again. I can't say enough good things. The room was fantastic, the Inn is very close to Parliament Hill and the Market, and the food was great. - Doug Cambell, Montreal

(A little lemon juice or vinegar if you wish to keep dough for 2-3 days)

Fill pie with beans to the top so it won’t shrink

We haven't put this on the menu at McGee's yet, but we may in the future.

A course at the Cordon Bleu School is a great experience.  We have had guests stay at McGee's Inn who have taken many of the various courses.
