Canadian Recipes


Canada is a country of many regions, and the cuisine of Canada very much reflects this fact. Each region of the country has its own unique dishes and flavors.

As might expected, given the country's history, Canadian cuisine has been greatly influenced by both British cuisine and French cuisine. Canada has a long southern border with the United States, so it should be no surprise to find influences from United States cuisine too. Additionally, there are dishes inspired by German cuisine, as well as eastern European and Scandinavian influences, especially in the West of the country, and Canada's Chinese community have brought their own dishes too. Finally, Canada's earliest inhabitants, Inuit and First Nations people, also have their own dishes and culinary traditions.

Some popular Canadian foods include:
  • Poutine - One of Canada's most famous dishes. Poutine originated in the French Canadian kitchens of from Québec, but has become popular throughout the country. Poutine is simply French fries topped with cheese curds and covered with gravy.

  • Lumberjack's breakfast - A traditional Canadian breakfast containing eggs, ham, bacon, sausage and pancakes.

  • Pâté chinois - A French Canadian dish somewhat similar to Cottage pie: a layer of ground beef (usually mixed with chopped onions and peppers), covered with a layer of corn (a mix of whole kernel and creamed corn is usually used) and then covered with a layer of mashed potatoes. The dish may be sprinkled with paprika, and is often served accompanied with pickled beets. The name of the dish means "Chinese pie", and there are various as to the origin of this name, the most common being that Chinese cooks serving railroad workers were taught how to make the dish.

  • Montreal bagels - Montreal bagels are the Canadian version of bagels. These bagels are prepared by boiling in honey-sweetened water and then cooked in a wood-fired oven. The bagels commonly come into two varieties: black-seed (sprinkled with poppy seeds) or white-seed (sprinkled with sesame seeds).

  • TourtiLiègere - A traditional meat pie from Québec made using ground pork, beef, veal or even game, and sometimes also containing potatoes. These pies are particular popular during the Christmas season.

  • Oreilles de crisse - Deep-fried pork jowls served with maple syrup.

  • Fish and brewis - A traditional meal from Newfoundland, made using salted cod and hardtack (a savory cracker-like biscuit). Both the main ingredients are soaked over night (to remove salt from the cod, and soften both cod and hardtack) and then boiled separately before being put together. Scrunchions (pork rind) or butter with chopped onions and flower, is then drizzled over the mixture.

  • Jigg's dinner - Another traditional meal of Newfoundland: salt beef, cabbage, and potatoes, as well as, optionally carrots and turnips. Traditionally jigg's dinner is served with pease pudding (a paste made from peas).

  • Toutin - A Newfoundland pancake-like dish. dough fried in fat.

  • Flipper pie - Seal flipper in a pie.

  • Ginger beef - This Chinese-inspired dish has become popular in western Canada. Strips of beef are deep-fried and coated with a sweet sauce (ginger is one of the ingredients in the sauce).

  • Nanaimo bar - A traditional Canadian dessert consisting of three layers, from bottom to top: a crumb layer (made using coconut, nut and wafer crumbs), a layer of vanilla custard, and a layer of chocolate.

  • Butter tarts - A dessert made from butter, sugar and eggs in a pastry shell. Butterscotch, chocolate chips, coconut or dates may optionally be added.

Product Description:
Two friends. Five months. One car. Ten provinces. Three territories. Seven islands. Eight ferries. Two flights. One 48-hour train ride. And only one call to CAA. The result: over 100 incredible Canadian recipes from coast to coast and the Great White North.


In the midst of a camping trip in Squamish, British Columbia, Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller decided that the summer of 2013 might be the right time for an adventure. And they knew what they wanted that adventure to be: a road trip across the entire country, with the purpose of writing about Canada's food, culture, and wealth of compelling characters and their stories.
     37,000 kilometres later, and toting a "Best Culinary Travel Blog" award from Saveur magazine, Lindsay and Dana have brought together stories, photographs and recipes from across Canada in Feast: Recipes and Stories from a Canadian Road Trip. The authors write about their experiences of trying whale blubber in Nunavut, tying a GoPro to a fishing line in Newfoundland to get a shot of the Atlantic Ocean's "cod highway," and much more.
     More than 80 contributors--including farmers, grandmothers, First Nations elders, and acclaimed chefs--have shared over 90 of their most beloved regional recipes, with Lindsay and Dana contributing some of their own favourites too. You'll find recipes for all courses from Barley Pancakes, Yukon Cinnamon Buns, and Bannock to Spot Prawn Ceviche, Bison Sausage Rolls, Haida Gwaii Halibut and Maritime Lobster Rolls; and also recipes for preserves, pickles and sauces, and a whole chapter devoted to drinks.
     Feast is a stunning representation of the diversity and complexity of Canada through its many favourite foods. The combination of Lindsay and Dana's capitivating journey with easy-to-follow recipes makes the book just as pleasurable to read as it is to cook from.
