Canadian Delicacies: Game Meat
Sorry, Black Angus steak. Canada has some new meaty competition on its dinner table. Carnivores will delight in the range of domestic game meat carried in butcher shops, and served in restaurants across the country: venison (elk, deer, moose), bison, boar, and rabbit. Leaner, and lower in fat and calories than the usual plate-bound protein, game meat is a healthier mealtime alternative.

Canadian Delicacies: Tourtière
Traditionally enjoyed during autumn and winter holiday celebrations, tourtière is a hearty French Canadian meat pie that has become so popular that it now tantalizes the palates of diners across the country year-round. A thin, flakey crust encases the pie’s savory mixture of diced pork, onion, garlic, and spices. Variations of the original recipe abound with some ingredient lists including ground chicken, beef, salmon, veal or game meats, as well as potatoes, rolled oats, cinnamon and white wine.
