It’s Canada Day! We’re celebrating with a lot more than maple syrup (but there’s maple syrup on this list, too).
For those of us who grew up in Canada but live elsewhere, this day brings on a bit of nostalgia. Memories of the food of one’s childhood can be a big part of that, and this article (and its accompanying recipes) made me pause (and drool just a little). Much of what’s on this list does not fall within any category of healthful, but even reading about the butter tarts, Nanaimo bars and poutine (without imbibing!) brings warm memories. I might just go cure some salmon, though—that one sounds particularly good right now!
Today in Canada, it’s all parades, festivals, concerts, and fireworks: It’s Canada Day! Whether you’re in Canada now, a Canadian expat living elsewhere, or just looking for something to celebrate, fête the country’s national day with a lot more than maple syrup (though there’s maple syrup on this list, too). Here are recipes for 8 Canada-inspired snacks—some national dishes, some nationally inspired.
Happy Canada Day! What’s your favo(u)rite Canadian food?
