The foods of Quebec
We are inviting guests to St. Margaret’s Global Cuisine Potluck Saturday, March 9. The menu will be French Canadian fare – the specialties of Quebec – and the guests will be from the Re-entry Center here in Belfast. Please join us. Come be a host and help us welcome some new friends. We’ve got plenty of ideas and recipes for you to try.
From Wikipedia, here is what we know: “Quebec is most famous for its tourtieres (meat pies), pea soup (traditionally made with yellow peas), baked beans, cretons ( a pork spread containing onions and spice and served on toast for breakfast), ham dishes, maple desserts such as Grand-Peres (dumplings cooked in maple syrup) and molasses treats such as St. Catherine’s taffy.”
You will find one or two recipes for each of these dishes (and several others) in the folder on the Time and Talent table. If you have other French Canadian recipes please add those for others to try. Cipperly Good is in charge. She will be providing recipes for “Poutine.” (More about that next week.)
Dinner is at 6. Please come a bit earlier if your dish needs to be reheated or assembled. Remember to bring your own beverages and maybe a bit extra to share with our guests. CDs of French Canadian music are more than welcome. So are non-cooks. We invite you to help us clean up.
