the buzz





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:
Well...I'm 13 so I'm not all that experienced with cooking. I really like it though and want to do a lot more of it. I found out about this site when I was doing research for my science fair project. I became a member as soon as I turned 13 and I am. I love experimenting with food and making things look fancy (though sometimes they look fancier than they taste) Other than cooking I like to play sports and hang out with my friends. :):)
