A traditional staple for most Indigenous peoples in Canada, this delightful fry bread may seem pretty simple to make, but your best bet for a delicious treat is to support a local Indigenous bakery or restaurant.

Immensely popular in mountain towns, beavertails are a mouth-watering slab of deep-fried dough resembling the tail of our national animal and covered with your choice of toppings, from cinnamon and sugar, to bananas and peanut butter, to coconut and chocolate chips.

Food and Drink Festivals

With the vast array of cultures that comprise Canada’s population, it’s no wonder we have festivals year round and across the country to celebrate food and drink. Coastal towns might highlight the catch of the day with seafood festivals, big cities will often have multi-day events honoring ethnically diverse citizens and their traditional dishes, and there is of course no shortage of beerfests across the prairies and into the Maritime provinces.

Find Your Inner Chef or Sommelier

Along with the many ways to enjoy Canadian cuisine, there are also ample opportunities to don an apron and try your hand at baking something sweet, experimenting with gastronomy, or stomping some grapes. Restaurants across the nation offer cooking workshops instructed by professional chefs. In Quebec, you can arrange a private chocolate-making class with Miss Chocolat. And British Columbia’s Wine Factory invites you to get hands on with a batch of wine or bubbly. The best part of these learning opportunities? You get to consume what you make!

Did You Know?

Head to the East Coast for a taste of beer brewed from an iceberg. Nothing quite says Canadian like a brewski made with the purest 25,000 year old iceberg water. This is exactly what Quidi Vidi Brewery in Newfoundland and Labrador provides, and their unique brewing method infuses their beer with a crisp and distinct flavor.
