I am one of those people who Loves to explore the authentic foods and cultures of a place, and though I am aware the modern diet has found its way into most all cultures now, I thought it would be fun to start a thread where people could post traditional Canadian foods, and how they are made, as I am Not an AUTHENTIC Canadian, I have no food of my own to post Cheers!

I find poutine is better with mozzarella or cheddar cheese than it is with cheese curds. I know it's sacrilege, but it tastes even better with chicken gravy than it does with regular beef (brown) gravy.
