Here at Flow we’re getting super excited for Christmas. The team comes from very different cultures, and we love talking about the different traditions and rituals our families celebrate during the holidays, especially when it comes to food!
As many of you probably know, Isabelle Guay is a proud French-Canadian. She remembers Santa Claus being a big part of Christmas celebrations, and having a natural tree was very important to her family. Everyone hoped and prayed for a white Christmas, and friends and family were all invited around to spend time together, which included having some really tasty French-Canadian cuisine!
Tourtière pie was an integral part of holiday meals, along with the turkey. Tourtière is a traditional French-Canadian meat pie, usually made with ground pork and sometimes veal. Isabelle’s family typically enjoyed a kind of maple or sugar pie for dessert, along with a “bûche de Noël” cake, which is similar to a yule log, made by rolling sponge cake and icing then decorating it to look like a log for the fireplace.
