Maple Syrup

When one thinks of maple syrup, one thinks of Canada! The First Indigenous people in what is now Canada and the United States are responsible for discovering this delicious sweetener. However, these days, Quebec alone is responsible for 75% of the maple syrup distributed worldwide!

Maple Taffy or 'Tire d’érable sur la neige'

If you haven't ever tried maple taffy, you need to make it your goal in life to do so! It is simply boiled maple syrup poured over snow. The cold of the snow causes it to harden, and then you can roll it up with a popsicle stick and enjoy! There really is nothing better in life than maple taffy!

Bannock

Bannock is a traditional First Nations quick bread. Some prepare it flat, cooked in a cast-iron pan. However, growing up, we were taught that the most traditional method was to twist the dough around a stick and cook it over a campfire. There are many recipes online if you want to give it a try. It is a fun camping activity with kids too!

Peameal Bacon

Peameal bacon, also known as Canadian bacon in the rest of the world, is back bacon made from boneless pork loin and rolled in cornmeal.
William Davies is said to be the inventor of this delicious cured meat. The story goes he wanted to ship some brine-cured pork loin to relatives in England and rolled it in ground peas to help preserve it. Everyone loved it, so he continued to prepare pork in this way and sell it in Toronto as well.

Peanut Butter

Even though the US is probably more well known for peanut butter production, it was patented in Montreal in 1884. Marcellus Gilmore Edson obtained a patent for a method of creating peanut butter from roasted peanuts, and his cooled product had the consistency of butter. Sugar was added to the paste to help give the peanut butter a thicker consistency.

Kraft Dinner

Created by James Lewis Kraft, a native of Fort Erie, Ontario, Kraft Dinner is a Canadian household staple. No, he didn't invent pasta or the idea of putting cheese on pasta, but he had the very clever and convenient idea of putting it all in a non-perishable format in a box. It's pretty yummy too!

Hawaiian Pizza

Hawaiian pizza has provoked many a passionate debate about whether it is "real" pizza or not. It doesn't matter if you love it or hate it; Hawaiian pizza is definitely a Canadian invention. Greek-Canadian Sam Panopoulos came up with the creation in Chatham, Ontario, in 1962. Panopoulos worked at the Satellite Restaurant, and one day while experimenting with pizza topping, came up with the idea of putting ham and pineapple on a pizza. And thus, a Canadian pizza restaurant staple was born.

Two years later, they opened their first stand in Ottawa.

Caesar Cocktail

Some call the Caesar Canada's national cocktail. It was invented in 1969 by Walter Chell, who worked at the Calgary Inn. He was asked to come up with a signature drink for the restaurant, so he mixed vodka, clamato juice, Tabasco, and Worcestershire sauce. Hugely popular for its uniquely spicy flavor, it has been a favorite at Canadian brunches ever since.
