In honor of the above designation and upon request- below are more food recipes from
our 2014 French- Canadian Christmas Dinner.
This has become a family event with everyone (including guests) participating in the meal preparation. It was one of our best tasting, "Christmas theme" dinners to date.
If you use my photos or enjoyed this posting,
please remeber to give me credit. Thank you!
Enjoy these in the new year!

This particular story can be traced back to a French legend about a rich nobleman named Gallery who loved to hunt. He loved it so much that he refused to attend Sunday mass.

When French settlers arrived in Canada, they swapped stories with the natives and the tale of Gallery was combined with an Indian legend about a flying canoe. Source; Wikipedia.
