What even is “Canadian” food anyway?
There are many mixed emotions releasing this episode today. On one hand, we originally recorded this to “celebrate” Canada as we have in the past. On the other hand, with recent news and the further evidence of how Canada has mistreated our Indigenous Communities it’s difficult to feel very patriotic. With that said, we have included resources in our show notes to resources and charities so you can help educate yourself as well as give back to some incredible Indigenous causes.

Ultimately, we decided to release today’s episode anyways. Today’s episode centres more around food than Canada and our guests today would be the first to tell you that they don’t celebrate Canada day. So join Tuong and The Upford Network/Natural Toonie’s  Tom Zalatnai, Alexander Smith, and David Hall as they try to figure out what is “Canadian Food” and make a Top 5 list from it!

We know we can’t just eat one…
We were very lucky to record this episode pre-quarantine because live-sampling needed to happen (for research of course) to once and for all decide what the best chips are! These thin-sliced, deep-fried, crunchy snacks have been a staple in Snack Food Culture for centuries and we knew we had to do this episode justice. So join Tuong La and Potato Heads Hayley Kellett, Simone Dorie, and Leslie Cserepy as they get their sweet, salty, and savoury on and rank Top 5 Chips!
