Defining Canada’s Culinary Identity

Defining Canada’s Culinary Identity

The struggle – how to define Canada’s Culinary Identity while living abroad…

One of my favourite dishes from school was ‘blanquette de veau’, which is sort of like a veal stew with a white sauce. It feels like a cozy, homey meal. While the french dish in and of itself did not remind me of a meal from home – the warm, stewy nature of the dish feels like comfort food. Eating this got me thinking about what a homey meal means depending on where in the world you are from. So I started wondering how to best describe Canada’s culinary identity to non-canadians?

The Most Perfect Saturday in Paris!

The Most Perfect Saturday in Paris!

It is Sunday night and I am trying to get myself ready for my review week at school before my exam. The problem is my brain is still on a high from such a perfect Saturday in Paris! I usually head back to Belgium after school on Friday’s however this week the trains weren’t running as usual. Instead of going home, C drove here on Friday afternoon to spend the weekend in France and Saturday in Paris.

It finally is starting to feel like summer in France! In honour of the sunshine, and today being Bastille Day, I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite things to do in Paris and a few I have yet to try!

Moving to Europe in T – 21 Days

Moving to Europe in T – 21 Days

In exactly three weeks from today I will be waking up on a plane landing in Brussels. While always exciting, this is not a new experience. Except that this time I don’t have a return ticket because I am moving to Europe. (Standby freakout. Freakout go.)

Visa Applications Suck.

Visa applications are confusing, exhausting, confusing again, and basically just stupid. People should be able to go wherever they want whenever they want and that’s that.

Obviously I know that is not reality.
