Canadians at Table: A Culinary History of Canada (2011)


Dorothy Duncan

About the Book

In Canadians at Table, we learn about lessons of survival from the First Nations, the foods that fuelled fur traders, and the adaptability of early settlers to their new environment. As communities developed and transportation improved, waves of newcomers arrived, bringing memories of foods, beverages, and traditions they had known, which were almost impossible to implement in their new homeland. They discovered instead how to use native plants for many of their needs. Community events and institutions developed to serve religious, social, and economic needs – from agricultural and temperance societies to Women’s Institutes, from markets and fairs to community meals and celebrations.

Dorothy Duncan was the Toronto Women’s Culinary Network’s Woman of the Year in 2004, and in 2006 she was chosen by the Ontario Hostelry Institute to receive the Gold Award for Media and Publishing.
