This one is pretty hard. Food has become so internationalized over the years that it's difficult to find something that is authentically Canadian... We have assimilated ingredients and recipes from around the world into our kitchens.
Generally , the traditional cuisine of English Canada is closely related to British, American, Scandinavian Cuisine, while the traditional cuisine of French Canada has evolved from French Cuisine.
We identify our cuisine on the basis of uniquely Canadian ingredients, such as wild blueberries and saskatoon berries, fiddleheads (fiddlehead ferns, fiddlehead greens), mussels, caribou, bison, salmon, wild rice, maple syrup, and locally produced wine and ice wine, beer, and cheeses.
