Canada is one of the biggest French-speaking countries. Canada has a


rich culture with delicious foods and beverages to try. In this essay, I will be
talking about the mouth-watering foods that you can't miss in Canada. Aimer

One of the most well known dishes in Canada is called Poutine. Poutine is
made up of French Fries, fresh cheese curds, and then brown gravy. The fries
are topped with cheese and then brown gravy for the finishing touch. Poutine
has many different origin stories but a common one was started by a man
named Fernand Lachance. A man had asked him for a hot meal so he
combined hot French fries and cheese curds and he said a va faire une
maudite poutine! This means It will make a damn mess! Poutine comes
from Quebec. You can also add meat or potatoes in the dish for some extra
flavor.
Another dish of Canada is the Nanaimo Bar. It is a sugary, creamy dessert
made of vanilla, sugar icing, chocolate, walnuts, butter, coconut, and graham
cracker crumbs. It originates in Nanaimo, a city in British Columbia in
Canada. In 1947, Mrs. Lois Light of Vancouver submitted a recipe like this in
the newspaper. In 1948, Jean Haines of Wildwood submitted in another
recipe like this to he newspaper, claiming it was from New Zealand. The
name became the London Fog Bar, but Nanaimo Hospital had the same dish
in their cook book, so they wrote to Edith Adams about this. Edith decided to
change the name to Nanaimo Bar in their recognition.

The recipe for the Nanaimo Bar is:

Preparation
In bowl, stir together graham crumbs, coconut, walnuts, cocoa powder and
sugar. Drizzle with butter and egg; stir until combined.
Press crumb mixture into parchment paperlined 9-inch (2.5 L) square metal
cake pan. Bake in 350F (180C) oven until firm, about 10 minutes. Let cool
in pan on rack.
Filling: In bowl, beat together butter, custard powder and vanilla. Beat in
icing sugar alternately with milk until smooth, adding up to 1 tsp (5 mL) more

milk if too thick to spread. Spread over cooled base; refrigerate until firm,
about 1 hour.
Topping: In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt
chocolate with butter. Spread over filling; refrigerate until almost set, about
30 minutes.
With tip of knife, score into bars; refrigerate until chocolate is set, about 1
hour. (Make-ahead: Wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 days or overwrap in
heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.) Cut into bars.
The third common dish of Canada is the Pt Chinois. It is an incredibly
simple dish. The three ingredients are ground beef, creamed corn, and
mashed potatoes. You combine here three and cook it in an oven. It is almost
like a casserole or pie. Pt Chinois means Chinese pie. There are no real
records of when it started but theories are Chinese labourers in the Canadian
Pacific Railway made it up or it was named after the town of South China in
Maine. Menus started showing up in the 1920s and 1930s, though. Even with
the unknown history, Canadians love this dish.
The final dish is Butter Tarts. It is a popular Canadian dish made of pie pastry,
raisins, butter, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup or maple syrup, eggs, and
vanilla. This recipe dates back to 1915. There are many theories of its
beginning. One is a hospital in Canada made it, another is American slaves
brought the recipe to Canada, and another is Scottish immigrants brought it
to Canada. The tarts have been traced back to the 1600s. Although it is not
the same recipe, tarts have been around for a long time. Yet, it is still
delicious!
Canada has a special type of wine. It's called Ice Wine. The secret? It is
made from grapes frozen on the vine. Canada is heavily influenced by
France, and France has many vineyards to grow grapes. The Canadians
adopted this form of wine from France. Ontario has been producing Ice Wine
since 1984. The grapes are squeezed so only ice is left behind. Then, the
grapes are fermented, leaving behind an icy drink with minimal alcohol. The
history of Ice Wine is unclear, but many believe that it was accidentally
discovered in Franconia in 1774. Since then, Ice Wine has been getting
fresher and sweeter in taste, and is a huge part of Canada.
A common drink in all parts of the world, beer is also one of the most
important drinks in Canada. Canada drinks beer about 8 times more than any
other country. The beer isn't anything special, but for Canadians, beer is an
essential part of the day and almost everyone in Canada drinks beer (not

counting children). Beer originated in many different places. The most


common origin known is from Sumeria. Along with Sumeria, China also had
their own form of beer and the Middle East did as well. After beer spread,
Italy and Greece dominated the beer culture, and now Canada is continuing
this. Beer is a stable of a daily Canadian life. It brings color to life and can
make more fun. For Canadians, beer is water.
