Welcome to The New Canadians Blog, about Canada, the food, experience and perspectives from the new Canadians.
The only true natives of Canada are the First Nations people. All other settlers are the New Canadians who now comprise today’s New Canada.
I am a serial immigrant, married into another family of serial immigrants. Together, our extended family today consists of relatives from Scotland, Australia, British West Indies, China, Pakistan, Haiti, Sri Lanka, South Africa and the Philippines. Lately, we have categorized our relatives into vegan, vegetarian, keto, paleo, carnivorous, gluten free, lactose free, nut-free, sea-food free due to allergies. (I am not joking!)
My inspiration comes from my mother-in-law and aunt who introduced me to Canadian cooking. They lived together, and throughout their 80’s and 90’s, they have been cooking all kinds of recipes. They have dozens and dozens of cookbooks, and each recipe is an adventure for them to try. They mark the cookbook pages with post-it-notes and comments from their experience. They hunger for new recipes, whether it is from a newspaper, magazine article, or a slip of paper passed by a friend. When my mother-in-law passed away, I inherited her cookbooks, and boxes of index card recipes, many of them handwritten.
This has become my challenge. Cooking and trying out different recipes every day.
