    Forgive my ignorance, but does Canada have a signature meal that they're famous for?  I know a lot of great food comes out of Canada, but are any of them uniquely Canadian (like Tex-Mex is to Texas, or NE Clam Chowder is to NE, or Southern Fried Chicken is to the South)?


  • SqueezySqueezy Posts: 1,101

    We have poutine ... I guess out of Quebec. Our lobster is just as famous as it is in Maine. Montreal smoked meat, peameal bacon that we also call back bacon nad is known in the states as Canadian bacon. We also get credit for the butter tart and nanaimo bar. In the far north, wild game of all sorts are used. The natives made bannock, a flat bread.

    We like the states are a melting pot of ethnic foods from all over the world and I believe we are all better for it ....

    Hope that helps ...

    @ Squeezy-thanks for the reminder about Nanaimo-some of the best partying was there (winter or summer)-enjoyed (spectator) the bath tub races across the Strait of Georgia several years ago.  And Happy Canada Day tomorrow.

    Poutine is the first thing that comes to my mind...

    Soupe aux pois - French Canadian pea soup is made of ham stock, yellow peas, ham, onions, celery and seasoning to taste.

    Fêves au lard - Baked navy beans with salt pork and maple syrup

    Pâté chinois - Shepherd's pie variation. Layer of ground beef, layer of sweet corn and layer of mashed potatoes.

    Sugar shacks food:
    -eggs poached in maple syrup,
    -pork sausages baked in maple syrup
    -oreilles de crisse (traditional Quebec dish consisting of deep-fried smoked pork jowls. It is generally served at cabanes à sucre (sugar shacks) in spring time, traditionally topped with maple)
    -fêves au lard (mentioned above)
    -french Canadian pea soup (mentioned above)
    -pancakes

    Most of those French inspired dishes I'm not too familiar with except the pea soup, sheperd's pie & pancakes... The English brought fish-n-chips with malt vinegar (which I love), Scots with blood pudding and haggis and the Irish stews ... all good!

    I guess you all could take credit for Cajun food, like gumbo, etouffe, jambalaya, etc. since the Cajuns are French Acadians (way back).   :))

    Back in my day we were a Vertical Mosaic, meaning people could retain their culture whilst still seeing prosperity. Canadian Bacon is smoked pea meal. Happy Canada Day

    Souvlaki, of the chicken variety. Great as a direct cook, no smoke needed. Halved roast potatoes and a greek salad. Pita is always better brushed with garlic butter and toasted on the egg, and you have to love tzatziki.....

    Happy 145th Birthday Canada!!!

    Actually, the Treaty of Ghent restored the previous boundaries between the United States and Canada.  However, President James "Hussein" Madison opened up the borders with a Dream amnesty clause that would give illegal Canadian immigrants the chance to become American citizens.

    That is why Minnesotans speak the way they do today.  This is all in the history books.  Read it.

    LOL Hmmm, assimilation? The guy was smart...

    Ok, funny but this is going sideways...

    @gabriegger had a good point, we have good beverages. Tons of microbrasseries beers, ice wine, ice cider, maple ice cider... Actuallly, ice cider is great with pork tenderloin!
