Ontario

Ontario sits between the Great Lakes and Hudson Bay. No other Canadian province touches upon even a single Great Lake; Ontario touches upon all but Lake Michigan. Only Quebec province is larger, and no province is more populous. Ontario is one of four original provinces that entered into Confederation in 1867. After the American Revolution, many Americans loyal to the English crown fled to Canada. These new arrivals introduced American foods into Canadian cuisine: baked beans, fried chicken, and johnnycakes. Recently, immigration has expanded to include folks from all over the world. Canada’s largest city, Toronto, is a cosmopolitan and multicultural city in southern Ontario. Hungry Torontonians enjoy endless authentic ethnic food options. Ontario is orchard, berry, and wine country. Wild rice, collected along the shores of Ontario lakes, goes into casseroles, stews, and soups. Mushrooms, maple syrup, Cheddar cheese, farmed trout, and much of the pork that produces back bacon (a.k.a. Canadian bacon) comes from Ontario.
