The tire d'erable (maple taffy) was a big hit at the Cabane a sucre. You couldn't have just one.

The Revelstoke Francophone Cultural Group’s annual cabane a sucre (maple sugar shack) was a big success on Sunday, selling out for breakfast and lunch.

The meal, which was catered by La Baguette, included eggs, baked beans, pea soup, ham, sausage, potatoes, pancakes and, of course, maple syrup.

After, diners were invited outside to try some tire d’erable (maple taffy) — a perfectly sugary concoction of heated maple syrup cooled down on snow and eaten off a stick. You couldn’t have just one.

The meal was a fundraiser for the group, which puts on events for francophones and their friends year-round.
