What is Québec’s traditional cuisine like?

When people ask me that question, I usually have trouble responding.  For one – Quebec is Canada’s largest province.  Thus some of its traditional foods and recipes can vary even within the region itself.  Second, Quebec’s rich history is also reflected in many of its delightful meals, and while the French cuisine’s influence is indisputable, other nations and regions have also had significant impact.  This contributes to a very diverse and delicious regional cuisine.

Want to make a slow food meal from Quebec’s traditional cuisine?  Don’t settle for any recipe that is less than stellar!  You can make something as simple as a crock pot soup recipes or a more delicious and complex dish such as coq au vin, pate chinois, tourtière, ragout de boulettes and sugar pie.  These are all fantastic meals, give them a try!  They are definitely the things that I miss—and will miss—when I’m away.
