Canadian cooking and cuisine offers a wide diversity of cooking styles from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic shorelines. Western provinces rely on ethnic diversity and influences from Germany, China, Scandinavia, and Poland, while the eastern portion of Canada offers an abundance of seafood and French-influenced dishes. From British Columbia to Ontario, Native American dishes of wild game, fish and vegetables are popular, while in Quebec, one may enjoy a lumberjack breakfast or the famous tourtières (meat pies). No cooking class in Canada would be complete without including wildlife dishes, desserts glazed with maple syrup, or a wide range of native berries which provide a blend of sweet and tart to desserts, vegetables and meat dishes.
