When you think ‘Canadian’ food, there are only a few menu items that come to mind as genuine Canadian inventions. One of the first, of course, is Poutine. But I recently read somewhere that Poutine is ‘evolving’ and some are asking, how far can you ‘evolve’ the dish before it becomes something else?
Okay. It’s not really a lie. But it’s a misconception that the public seems to cherish as truth, and one which is passively, gladly enabled by the processed food industry which uses it universally on packaging and in commercials. Is it just a clever marketing mind game or cruel, profit-motivated cynicism?
We’ve all heard of ‘Curry’ and most of us have tasted one version or another of this classic spicy, saucy Indian dish. Actually, ‘Curry’ is more of a style than a specific recipe. In fact, there are probably as many ‘Curry’ recipes as there are cooks who make it. And where you eat your Curry is just as important!
