Iconic Foods of Canada: British Columbia

British Columbia is arguably the most beautiful and diverse province in Canada, from the rainforests of Haida Gwaii to the Rocky Mountain towns of Fernie and Golden.

Iconic Foods of Canada: Saskatchewan

Of the prairie provinces, Saskatchewan is the MOST prairie. It’s the flattest, wheatiest, and squarest of them all. Sounds kinda like a breakfast cereal, amirite?

Iconic Foods of Canada: Newfoundland & Labrador

Newfoundland & Labrador is Canada’s easternmost province, known for its ocean cliffs, icebergs, and those lovely windswept clotheslines. Many of Newfoundland’s culinary traditions are founded in resourcefulness and thrift: wild game, salted meats, tinned cream, root vegetables, mustard pickles, hard bread, and of course, cost-efficient bologna. Wherever you find a Newfoundlander, you’ll find downhome cooking and a musical pride. Meanwhile […]

The Winnipeg Fatboy

This is a guest post written by one of my most dedicated Food Questers, Denton Froese. He recently took a trip to Western Canada and investigated the Winnipeg Fatboy for me. Thanks, Denton!
