Indulge in the perfect Quebecois Sunday brunch with these delectable French Canadian Crepes, which are thinner than pancakes. This sweet and salty dish is a classic, drizzled with the iconic maple syrup, cheese and crispy bacon strips. French Canadian Crepes differ from the rest of Canada, they are thinner and based on the French Crepe recipe while the English part usually makes them fluffier like in the USA. They are not exactly like the French version either, being thicker than its cousin and filled with holes. But way thinner than pancakes because no baking powder is used. Also, unlike the Britanny (Western France) version, this French-Canadian version needs to be flipped. The Brunch, the Crepe Way The idea is to start with the sweet and savoury crepe, then make a second (sweet only) with fruits, whipped cream and maple syrup. The table should be filled with different fillings for different tastes.…

A popular dish from Canada, the famous hot chicken sandwich consists of shredded leftovers of chicken or turkey sandwich covered with homemade gravy and sweet peas. A ‘hot chicken sandwich’ or simply ‘Hot Chicken’ is one of those forgotten top 10 traditional dishes from Canada. It’s not spicy at all, in contrary to the famous Nashville hot chicken. It’s mostly popular in the French-speaking part of Canada. As a kid, I used to love it when my mom would do a whole roasted chicken for dinner, not because I loved the dish but because I knew I would get my favourite meal the next day! If you go visit the Eastern part of Canada, you’ll see this dish in many “Casse-croûte” (tiny restaurants, for a quick bite, by the road), or roasted chicken fast food chains. This dish isn’t what I would call: high gastronomy… it’s more of a comfort food or…

A traditional family dinner that is part of every French Canadian table is the famous ‘paté chinois.’ A three-layered pie of ground meat followed by corn and topped with mashed potatoes. This version has a Spanish flair with extra paprika, garlic, and thyme. Paté Chinois / French Canadian Shepherd’s pie is a typically French Canadian meal… Created by British railroad workers, in the 19th century, as an imitation of the famous “cottage pie” (beef, lamb and mashed potatoes). The dish was an imminent “hit,” at least, for the “on-site” railroad workers, including many French Canadians and Chinese workers. The French brought it back home and called it: Chinese paté… which has nothing to do with China… The “paté chinois” differs from the cottage pie or shepherd’s pie mainly because the corn layer in the middle was a cheap and easy ingredient. For the majority, this is the meal every household does…
