Are you ready to welcome the new year with a new field trip Friday?!
As we enter the new year, we want to continue to encourage our students to embrace cultures which may be different from their own! That’s why this month we will be going all over the world and taking a look at different foods from different cultures! Food is one of the most important parts of a culture as it can tell us so many things about a region’s traditions, resources, climate, agriculture, and more!
This week, we are going to get our bellies ready, and head over to Canada! When you think of Canada you might imagine snow, moose, and hockey. But Canada also has culinary dishes unique to their northern region! One of those dishes is butter tarts!
Butter tarts are interesting as they can be traced all the way back to the 19th century. Some scholars believe the dish originated when French settlers traveled to Quebec to colonize the land. With them, they brought along traditional European recipes for pastries such as tarts. They had to adapt to what was available in the area, and eventually the butter tart was born!
