Manitoba

Carved out of the Northwest Territories in 1870, Manitoba is the easternmost of central Canada’s three Prairie Provinces. Though technically part of western Canada, Manitoba lies smack-dab in the country’s center, midway between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It sits above North Dakota and Minnesota, and to the northeast borders onto Hudson Bay. Thirteen-thousand years ago, much of Manitoba was underwater, beneath the enormous glacial Lake Agassiz (larger than all of the Great Lakes combined). Today, thousands of lakes, remnants of the big lake, dot the province, and Winnepeg, Manitoba’s capital, stretches out across the dried bed of that ancient lake. Manitoba’s lakes, wetlands, forests, and prairies offered Native tribes terrific abundance. Well before natives made contact with English and French fur traders in the 1600s, they were consuming bison, elk, caribou, fish (like pickerel and goldeye), wild rice, and berries. Many of these foods remain on the menu in Manitoba. Healthful canola oil was developed from rapeseed at the University of Manitoba in 1974. The name Canola is a mash-up of the words Canada and oil.

About me:
I love to cook, I always have. My Nanny was the first person I remember cooking with. We would make cinnamon buns at the lake together for breakfast and I was always amazed that she could make things without recipes and they always turned out so good. I vividly remember sitting in front of the oven with her watching the meringue on her amazing lemon meringue pie so that it wouldn't burn. Now with my nieces I do the same thing and tell them the story of when I was a little girl and how I used to do the same thing. It's a great memory!
