Prince Edward Island



Prince Edward Island

Canada’s smallest province, Prince Edward Island also has the smallest population. Prince Edward Island’s motto is a paean to the pint-sized: “the small protected by the great.” Prince Edward Island joined into Confederation in 1873. The name refers to the father of Queen Victoria, Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent, and fourth son of King George III. Known as the Garden of the Gulf, crescent-shaped Prince Edward Island sits above New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, mimicking the curve of the coastline, from which it is separated by the Northumberland Strait. At one time, the island was part of the French colony Acadia. Much of the French population fled or was deported during forced expulsion in the 1750s. Along with beautiful beaches, red sandstone cliffs, and windswept vistas, there are many small-scale farming communities on this pastoral island. Potatoes are the most important crop here. Lobster, oyster, and mussel harvesting is big too. Prince Edward Island accounts for about 80 percent of Canada’s mussel production.

About me:
I live with my boyfriend and cooking is one of our favorite pass times. Spending an evening preparing, cooking, EATING and cleaning up after a meal (sometimes this part gets left until the morning)is one of the most enjoyable things for me. Of course this process is only complete when accompanied by a bottle of delicious red wine.
