What is it about cold weather that turns cooking novices into budding bakers, hell-bent on pulling something homemade out of the oven to wow guests? If you're going to bake something this season, you would be hard pushed to find a more Canadian dish than tourtière, a meat pie originating from Quebec usually made from pork, beef or veal.
This recipe from Bannock combines seasonal vegetables with seasoned ground pork underneath pastry for the ultimate Canuck pie that's perfect for the next big dinner you host. Or – if you find yourself with all the good intentions but none of the requisite time for pie-making – Bannock and Beauty Barbecue & Smokehouse will be offering a selection of pick-up dates throughout November and December. We won't tell if you don't.
