Happy Canada Day!

In honour of Canada Day please enjoy this clip of my favourite comedian. He’s not Canadian but it was his first Canadian television appearance and he does make a few jokes about food so that’s my tenuous connection to my blog.

Happy Canada Day!

What can I write about in honour of Canada Day? What foods is Canada known for? Poutine, donairs, beaver tails (not what you may be thinking if you’re not from here, these are delicious calorific pastries), cod tongues/cheeks (yup, exactly what you’re thinking), ketchup flavoured potato chips, blueberries, maple syrup…

Looking for a good recipe using maple syrup? Try:
