What are some of the major Canadian dishes
Canadian food: You should definitely try these snacks and dishes
What could be better than going on a culinary journey of discovery in a new country! As an exchange student in Canada, you have ample opportunity to try all the goodies that make North America stand out. While you may have heard of one or the other dish, some delicacies will certainly be new to you. There is a large selection: although many dishes are known and loved nationwide, each province has its own local specialties and highlights. Today we introduce you to typical Canadian food that you should definitely try on site!
Poutine - the national dish
Hardly any other food screams more CANADA than poutine (pronounced like the name of the Russian President). This unhealthy but extremely tasty fast food specialty was invented in the French-speaking province of Quebec in the 1950s, and from there it took all of Canada by storm. Poutine can be found everywhere in many different variations. The very classic variant consists of coarsely cut, mostly double-fried French fries, poured over gravy and sprinkled with cheese curds (pieces of cheese, reminiscent of mozzarella cheese). In contrast to French fries, poutine is not eaten with your fingers, but with a fork. No matter how short or long you stay in Canada, you will not be able to avoid this dish!
Canadian Food - Maple is a staple!
Maple, Maple, Maple - this is Canada! It is no coincidence that a large maple leaf sits enthroned in the middle of the Canadian national flag. Maple Syrup is THE Canadian export product par excellence. Nobody, absolutely nobody, can get around it in North America. Canadians love their maple syrup for many things. Even some hearty dishes are sweetened with it. Above all, maple syrup goes well with dishes such as pancakes, waffles or oatmeal or porridge. You will also come across maple syrup in sweets such as chocolate or toffee in Canada.
By the way, a very special Maple highlight is “Taffy on Snow” (also called Maple Taffy / Toffee), which is often offered at markets in winter. This is liquid, hot maple toffee that is poured onto real snow and then rolled up into a kind of lollipop with a wooden skewer.
Lobster and Sea Food
If you are doing your student exchange on the beautiful Nova Scotia peninsula, you will encounter seafood and especially lobster very early. Due to the proximity to the ocean, such fresh products are always available and ubiquitous. If you're not on a vegetarian diet, you should definitely try lobster once. In addition to the classically cooked lobster with melted butter, which is eaten with the help of lobster claws, there are many other varieties of lobster. Whether as a classic "lobster roll" (fish sandwich), as a burger, street food or soup - what is an expensive delicacy elsewhere is ubiquitous, especially in Nova Scotia.
This is a very popular dessert that originally came from the town of Nanaimo on the west coast of Canada. In terms of appearance, it is somewhat reminiscent of the typical German children's dish Kalter Hund or Kalte Schnauze. It consists of three layers and is not baked. At the bottom there is a mixture of biscuits, nuts and coconut flakes. On top of that there is a thick layer of a kind of pudding cream that is covered with chocolate at the very top. Whether homemade, fresh from the bakery or frozen from the supermarket - you probably won't pass Nanaimo bars either.
Donuts from "Timmy's"
Coffee and donuts - this is how the restaurant chain Tim Hortons, founded by the ice hockey player of the same name in Canada in 1964, started. There are rumors that coffee in Canada has only become drinkable since Tim Hortons opened and that almost every Canadians knows coffee there. There is now a branch on every corner of the country. Overall, there are more "Timmy's" than other fast food shops.
The Tim Hortons, which are mostly open 24/7, no longer serve just coffee and donuts, but also all other lunch dishes such as sandwiches, salads and burgers. The fact is: In Canada you can forget about Starbucks - a visit to Tim Hortons is definitely a must!
Tips: If you want to feel like a local and like it cute, order a "double-double". Then you get a coffee with 2x cream and 2x sugar. You should definitely try a mixture of the so-called "timbits" in different flavors! These are the inside of the donut holes that are punched out and sold separately.
You see: Canada is also a dream come true for foodies. We wish you a lot of fun on your culinary discovery tour and wish you a lot of fun!
