Cook Around the Globe - December 2011 Roundup
Welcome to the December 2011 roundup of "Cook Around the Globe". As always, I am very excited and curious to see the recipes of other participants (and I will try to look at and comment on all of them!). This month, I explored a cuisine that I had absolutely no prior knowledge of. Which is a little embarrassing as I have been to Canada twice. I ended up preparing most of my chosen recipes from "The Canadiana Cookbook" by Madame Jehane Benoit. It's full of traditional recipes. As a potato lover, I especially enjoyed the wide variety of dishes using these tubers. Not all recipes turned out as good as I had hoped they would be but that's part of this event. Out of all the recipes I prepared, my favorites were the Canadian Maple Walnut Pancakes, Salmon Patties, Quebec Pork Pie (Tourtière), and I just love the Alaskan Shrimp Soup. I am curious what other Canadian dishes are out there, so if you prepared a Canadian dish this month or if you have an older one that you would like to share, feel free to add the link to the blog hop. I hope all of you enjoyed this event and will be back in January (announcement will follow). Also, if you liked the event, grab a button and spread the word. You can add the blog hop to your own blog if you like. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page, click on the link, and choose the appropriate code for your type of blog. I will conclude by saying a thousand times "thank you" to all participants and enjoy the recipes!
