Red River Heritage Fair
I decided to find out what the most popular desserts were in each province and territory across Canada. I baked something for each one and had lots of fun doing my research!
What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?
People would eat the desserts because it was something they could afford. You can turn your leftover foods into dessert! Potatoes can become chocolate cake!!
What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?
Canada is sweet and there are many great desserts across the country. Some things were popular because of what grows in the province. And some were traditional desserts because the ingredients were available through the winter.
How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?
Everyone still eats dessert. We now have access to more ingredients. It's still fun to bake with your grandma.
