Stretching between the Hudson Bay and the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, La belle province is Canada’s largest and the second most populous province. Fiercely independent, Quebec is the only Canadian province with a majority French-Canadian population. Settled by the French in the early 17th century as a fur trading colony, Quebec would be lost to Britain the following century. However, its French flavor remains. French food traditions abound in the rustic country breads, meat pies, cretons (a spread for toast made with pork), artisan cheeses (like Oka, made by Trappist monks), and foie gras. Soupe aux pois (yellow pea soup) with salt pork is a national French-Canadian dish. Feves au Lard (Quebec Baked beans) is often cooked with maple syrup. (Quebec produces more maple syrup than any other province.) Poutine, a popular comfort food, consists of French fries topped with fresh cheese curds and hot brown gravy. Pate chinois, another French-Canadian dish, is similar to English Shepherd’s pie. Pastrami-like smoked meat sandwiches and bagels baked in wood-fired ovens are local Montreal favorites.
