Yummy food that represents Canada?

Tomorrow night is my school international potluck. We are supposed to bring food that represents where we are from? What’s food that I could use for Canada?

Maple candy?

Maple syrup is the first thing that pops into my head.

MY daughter’s former SO (from Toronto) always made a pork tourtiere for Christmas Eve. After many mean jokes about Canadian food, we all devoured this.

Nanaimo bars. They do take a bit of time, planning and effort to make, but they’re effin’ decadent.

From Quebec; poutine Not for the kosher minded nor faint of heart, literally and figuratively. But delicious. Also, Onion Soup. Smoked meat and Bagels from Montreal cannot be found elsewhere. Beware: they are addictive.

There are two…............

Cookies, maple, that are made in Canada and sold at Dollar Tree stores. Made with real maple syrup and just great.

Frozen waffles. Yep, made in Canada and sold at WalMart. They, also are great.

One thing I had in a Toronto restaurant and have not run into anywhere else, is deep fried parsley. It was wonderful. (somewhat to my surprise.)

Poutine. French fries smothered in melted cheese curds and gravy. Yum.
