Most of you know I’m Canadian but I have quite a few more subscribers in the last six months so here’s my official announcement in case you missed it – I am a proud Canucklehead! This year Canada Day snuck up on me and I have to admit I didn’t even make a special dish but I will definitely point you in the right direction to enjoy some real Canadian cuisine. A lot of people say that Canada doesn’t really have a food that they are known for but we do! We create fabulous salmon and lobster dishes along with venison, elk and bison. The world loves our poutine, bacon and maple syrup as well.
Vancouver Island, British Columbia
Today’s post is all about the beauty of our very diverse country. Did you know that only 35 million people live in Canada and we are the second largest country (land mass) and we have the largest coastline in the world? On our west coast, you’ll find the most beautiful province of all (ok, I’m a wee bit bias!) and if you visit B.C., you must have the wild salmon.
Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, Alberta
Alberta is next and it is known for it’s premier beef. No trip to Calgary is complete without a beautiful steak dinner. And of course, you must visit Banff when you’re there. Breathtaking!
One of the many wheat fields in Saskatchewan
Then we have the prairies which include the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. They are one of the biggest suppliers of wheat in the world. Our cowboys live in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and if you ever meet up with one you have to invite them for a scrumptious bison burger.
Niagara Falls, Ontario
Ontario is the most populated province and is known for bacon, maple syrup, corn on the cob and pickerel just to name a few.
Quebec City, Quebec
People love to visit Montreal and the historic Quebec City and while there they are munching on poutine, bagels and cheese.
Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia
The Maritimes consists of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador. Lobster is a super popular food there and it’s one of the most scenic areas in Canada.
So there you have it – some scrumptious foods that Canadians love to eat. I’ll be eating salmon because well, I eat salmon whenever I can! Happy Canada Day to my Canadian audience and thanks so much for your loyal readership. It’s been especially fun getting your emails these last few months as my blog grows. I love getting to know you!
