Famous Canadian Cuisine

Here is our run-down of the most famous of Canadian cuisine and where you can find some of the country’s more unusual regional specialities.

This lean, pork loin bacon is wet-cured for flavour and rolled in a crunchy crust.

Originally the crushed yellow pea coating was used to help extend the bacon’s shelf life, but today peameal bacon is covered in cornmeal for an irresistible bite. 

It was William Davies, a bacon curer from Toronto, who was first credited with the food’s creation. He made it to sell to England, which was then experiencing a shortage in bacon.

Grilled in medium slices, the centre is left slightly rare, with a crispy exterior for a melt-in-the-mouth taste.

Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market is world-renowned for its peameal bacon sandwiches, particularly Carousel Bakery’s ‘World Famous Peameal Bacon Sandwiches’.
