Canadians at Table: A Culinary History of Canada (by Dorothy Duncan) Dundurn Press, 2011. 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.
