Canadian Cuisine

Canadian cuisine, which varies widely by region and its peoples, is not as popular outside of Canada. However, Poutine stands out as purely Canadian which puts us on the map of world foods.

Canadian cuisine combines the customs and traditions of English, Scottish and French cuisines.

The provincial kitchens of European meals expanded after the subsequent waves of immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries. Despite the ability to identify some of the dishes as Canadian, it’s difficult to define a complete style of Canadian cuisine because of the cultural diversity.
