I consider burgers, apple pie, and cheddar cheese as the quintessential American foods. That got me to wondering what the most quintessential Canadian foods are. What are the foods identified around the world as “Canadian”?
After some deliberation I came to the conclusion that poutine, maple syrup and Canadian bacon are the quintessential Canadian foods.
What are your thoughts? Am I accurate to claim that two out of the three quintessential Canadian foods have their roots planted in Quebec, the one province that continues to question their relationship with Canada?
