Quebec

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.

About me:
Hmmm, about me, well, I'm 20 years old, I'm engaged to a wonderful man, he and I have been dating and living together for 2 and a half years. I've been cooking for about 4-5 years now, and I have realized in the past year just how much I love to cook, especially when its from scratch, and most of all when its baked goods. I am always trying to cook new and different things. I have started a cook book, full of recipes that I have made before and that either my fiancee or I have liked. I hope to pass this recipe book on to my children in the future.
