Canadian Eats: Exploring Canadian Foods in the Glebe

By on June 19, 2017

Canadian Eats is an event in which local restaurants, bakeries and food shops showcase Canada’s culinary scene for its 150th anniversary.

Supporting local initiatives is something that is very important to me, especially when great tasting cuisine is at the forefront.

Restaurants in the Glebe will be putting Canada on a plate during Canadian Eats, an exciting new signature event aimed at capturing the spirit of Canadian cuisine. Canadian Eats will be running until Canada Day, which is plenty of time to take the opportunity to taste a range of dishes inspired by Canada.

Andrew Peck, Executive Director of the Glebe Business Improvement Area is proud to be supporting this new initiative as the Glebe area has a plethora of noteworthy restaurants and food providers that deserve to be recognized.

“Canadian Eats is designed to be a culinary adventure that sparks a larger conversation about what our national cuisine is all about. At the same time, we can promote the many talented chefs, farmers, producers, merchants and restaurateurs in our area that bring this food to life.”

 “We believe this event is a wonderful way to celebrate being Canadian in the weeks leading up to Canada Day and during our 150th year!” – Andrew Peck, Executive Director of the Glebe Business Improvement Area

The mission for Canadian Eats: provide customers with dishes that are influenced by the Canadian spirit and to put Canada on a plate!

The menu will feature food and drink that embodies the Canadian experience and provides insight into how ingredients and life in our country has helped shape what we create, consume and savour. Food fans will discover the classics we all love, while seeing how our regions, diversity, history, and ingredients have lent themselves to new variations on the recipes we’ve come to appreciate from other places.

The CANADIAN EATS menu will offer a wide range of delicious options and price points, creating an inclusive selection of fare for everyone. Glebe grocers, cafés, bakeries, food shops and the Ottawa Farmer’s Market will also be part of the picnic in their own way.

The many dishes, stories, recipes, and promotions will be shared online (www.canadianeats.ca) throughout the initiative with the hope of generating even more conversation around what makes our food Canadian. The Glebe BIA aims to develop CANADIAN EATS into an annual event that continues to further our understanding of what our national cuisine is all about.

  • During my press trips I'm always eager and intrigued to learn from different cultures. In Taiwan, I took time to enjoy the scenery of the Taroko National Park and learn about their tribal warriors. Generations of Taroko tribe warriors walked deep into the mountain forests and crossed the swift flowing rivers and streams of the Taroko Gorge as they hunted and gathered food. The day I visited the park, the humid hot heat combined with mating season ❤ made for perfect conditions for the cicadas 🦗 to sing. I learned that their loud sound actually repels birds  which is rather unfortunate. The sound was so loud it seemed as the mountains had amplified their songs. #tbt #taroko #presstrip #taiwan #waunderlust #travelblogger #travelpics #instatravel #tribal #tribalwarriors #presstrip #luxury #luxurytravel #topattraction #luxurylife #travelinstyle #lovemyjob #epic #bucketlist #pictureperfect #instatravel #pictureperfect #bucketlist #zenmoment #serenity #nature #naturelover #thefoodteasetravels #tarokogorge #tarokonationalpark

  • I'm all about experiencing things from different cultures, so when the opportunity presented itself I just had to try the "betel nut" experience😈😋 When in Rome, or in this case when in Taiwan...
For those of you that don't know, the betel nut gives people a buzz equivalent to six cups of coffee and is used variously as a symbol of love, marriage and a cure for indigestion and impotence.
Found across Asia, these nuts are harvested from the Areca palm and are chewed for their warming glow and stimulating properties (putting it mildly). Such is its effectiveness, that alongside nicotine, alcohol and caffeine, betel nuts are believed to be one of the most popular mind-altering substances in the world.
My small experience was interesting. I discovered rather quickly that the taste of the nut was very far from being tasty. Medicinally disgusting is the word I'd use to describe the flavor and it took a while for me to get used to it. There was so much chewing involved as the nut was covered by the betel leaf. Then 10 minutes later the nut started to work it's supposed magic. My entire chest, neck and arms turned so bright red and warm as the body buzz was kicking in, you'd swear I was sunburnt. With my heart racing and mouth and tongue turned orange in color, I started to feel my tongue become numb AND that's when I stopped chewing it. That was enough for me 😱 ☠  It's all about the cultural experience! #tbt #betelnut #buzz #bodybuzzz #culture #culturalexperience #travelblogger #travelpics #foodblogger #euphoria #asia #asiaexperience #wanderlust #nomad #youonlyliveonce #taiwan #culture #betel #instatravel #instapassport #aroundtheworld #exploringtheglobe #exploringtheworld #thefoodteasetravel #thefoodteaseeats #thefoodtease #theglobewanderer

  • My perfect way to end the autumn season was by experiencing @ottawarecolte2018 by the Rideau Canal. Visually it was stunning with all the lanterns and domes being lite up as they provided the most scenic of dinners! And the food....a 4 course blind tasting menu perfectly executed by @chefrenerodriguez and his team member @rzmnpssn was truly stellar! Guests were spoiled by a spicy acorn salad, a delicious thai broth and for the main, either a melt-in-your-mouth short rib dish or a salmon and bearnaise delight - each dish was exceptional 😋 And for dessert, guests were fawning over the explosion of flavours given by the vanilla bean panacotta😍😍 #récolte613 #popupdinner #foodblogger #foodgasm #foodpic #foodie #foodporn #instafood #dome #domedinner #dining #autumn #travelblogger #thefoodteasetravel #thefoodtease #thefoodteaseeats #613eats #unique #oneofakind #lovemyjob #rideaucanal
