Canadian Cuisine

Canadian cuisine, which varies widely by region and its peoples. This cuisine combines the customs and traditions of the first three peoples’ kitchens of Canada, which are rooted in English, Scottish and French, and these provincial kitchens expanded after the subsequent waves of immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries. From Central, Eastern, Southern, South Asia, East Asia and the Caribbean. Despite the ability to identify some of the dishes as Canadian depending on the ingredients used, or the area, it is difficult to define a complete style of Canadian cuisine. One Canadian official once said that Canadian cuisine is a kitchen and that it is a university of dishes from other cultures’ kitchens.   Poutine: Is a popular and very famous dish, first appeared in Quebec in 1950, consists of fingers of fried potatoes, cheddar cheese, sauce and chicken or beef broth, and the biotin eat low-cost high-calorie.   Nova Scotia Donair: It is sometimes called Maritime donair or Halifax donair. It is a famous snack or snack, including hot beef in French bread, topped with tomatoes, onions, sweet milk sauce, garlic powder, sugar and vinegar.   Nanaimo Bars: It consists of a wafer crumb-based layer topped by a layer of custardflavoured butter icing which is covered with melted chocolate made from chocolate squares.

Testimonial: Laura Elisa Alves Amorim

We love when our students want the share their experience at EC with the others. Here is the testimonial from Laura Elisa Alves Amorim. She started at EC Vancouver at the end of June this year. When I started making my plans to study in Vancouver, I imagined that I was going only for English classes, but to my surprise, when I arrived there I realized that EC has much more to offer! In my first week, our group went to Deep Cove. As soon I got off the bus, our activity leader took us to the trail through the woods. It was a bit difficult, but when we arrived at the top of the mountain I was surprised by the view. It was stunning! I took so many pictures to show all my friends in Brazil. In my Last week in Vancouver, we went to Lynn Canyon Valley. It is much more than only a suspension bridge. I had an amazing surprise when I saw the river with cliffs and transparent water. People were sunbathing and swimming in freezing water. By the river, it was possible to see the rocks over the water and the trees surrounding the area. The school is amazing and I loved every single moment at EC Vancouver! I will never forget my EC experience! ——- Are you thinking to study English in Canada?
