Cuisine of Canada

A debate came up with an acquaintance a while back, regarding whether or not there exists a unique Canadian cuisine (just guess where he was from). I was pro; he was con; the delicacies on this list are the resulting saskatoon berries of my labour.

(It's on wikipedia, so be sure to add your own Canuck favourites).

what about nanaimo bars, butter tarts, fiddle heads, poutine, tourtière, tarte au sucre to name a few?

also, i don't go south of the border if i can avoid it, but in europe i was invited to a "souper canadien" which turned out to be the expression for potluck... apparently a canadian culinary tradition (though i don't actually know its origins).

Nifty, about potlucks!

Those dishes/desserts you mention are already in the wikipedia list. Thanks for the thought.

By the way, how did you find spezzato? (Forgive me if I simply do not recognize your web moniker).

oops, missed the wikipedia part of your post (hence the redundant responses).

spezzato finder? firetrap. she got me hooked onto the whole blog thing. and hooked, i am.

you might remember me from a dusty shelf somewhere in the back of your brain - we were both in tao-van, when there was such a thing.

by the way, i really like your photos (especially when they're describing how to make food).

Oh yeah, I remember you. Thanks for reading! The wiki list is going well now, eh?
