Fair address: Vancouver Heritage Fair

Project: Poutine and Butter Tart

I believe food is a amazing way to tell a culture, so I decided to dive deep into the sugar filled butter tart and the greasy poutine, to find more meaning they have to Canada!

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

Learning about the festivals and history is always cool to find out, but reading peoples different perspective on butter tarts was by far INCREDIBLE.(I read a funny review of someone saying they now have diabetes as a joke)

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Food will forever be important to us. We need to learn about what we eat in our everyday life. All food have a meaning and it is important to appreciate the meals we have invented. Its sometimes the small details you have to focus on before you see the big picture.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Everyone was grateful and happy and I’m grateful and happy, WE ALL ARE HAPPY FOR BUTTER TARTS AND POUTiNE!! High fives to all butter tart and poutine lovers!
