Traditional Quebec recipes

CaptCrunch | Jul 22, 2014 03:40 PM

Hello all!

I just made a post in the Quebec board and I thought it might interest you too.

I made a list of quebec recipes and translated them for others to try.

Keep in mind however:
*This list is not meant to be exhaustive
*Its a list of classics, so there will be a million different versions
*When faced between a more fancy version and a version that felt more authentic, I chose authenticity
*"Authentic" is my own feeling based on my own memory. Your distance will vary.
*When available, I included a martin picard variation. if you enjoy, you should look for his cookbooks
*Yep, I used my tumblr account... its faster for me to update. I included links to all recipes in posts however.
*You might have the same exact recipe at home, or a variation. It happens! I preferred not to take any chance (maybe there could be interesting differences?). Those are classics from my childhood but maybe they are classic from the childhood of someone born in New England too.
