A culinary survey of the superb foods of Canada. Attracted by abundant natural resources -- rich farmland, great forests, wide-ranging prairies, coastal waters and fresh-water lakes -- people from all over the world immigrate to Canada. The food traditions brought by every generation`s newcomers and the country`s great resources merge to form a unique cuisine that is distinctly Canadian. In A Taste of Canada , stories and anecdotes accompany recipes from each corner of the country to capture Canada`s ethnic and regional diversity. The book`s easy-to-follow format features classic delicacies enhanced with exciting new ingredients to reflect the cosmopolitan and multicultural Canadian palate. Some examples are: Wild rice pancakes with sour cream and caviar Chipotle maple baked beans Wine-pickled salmon Parsnip and pear soup with five-spice powder Pumpkin bisque with cranberry oil swirl Chorizo and scrambled egg breakfast pizza Slow-roasted pork shoulder with spiced apple relish Maple-glazed grilled peameal bacon Apricot coffee cake with butterscotch walnut filling Blueberry bread pudding with whiskey sauce. A Taste of Canada showcases Canadian culinary specialties, from tourtiv®re and classic fish chowders to butter tarts and Nanaimo bars.
