Earlier this year, my husband and I moved to Vancouver, BC from the United States. While I am Canadian, I’ve never lived in Canada. We celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving in early October with family in Princeton, BC. Because we already ate one turkey feast, I wasn’t going to cook another one for American Thanksgiving. But, traditions are traditions. Who says you can’t have 2 turkey dinners in one season. So, inspired by some Canadian friends, I decided to go all out and cook up another feast, in honor of American Thanksgiving. However, I took the opportunity of this being our second turkey feast of the season, to experiment and try something new. The result – a very nontraditional, extremely savory and delicious, American Thanksgiving in Canada. Over the next few days, I will post the various recipes from this unique feast. But here’s a glimpse of the amazing food:

  • Roasted Butternut Squash, Onion & Garlic Dip with Crackers and Brie Cheese
  • Tandoori Turkey with Tandoori Masala Gravy
  • Cranberry Apple Chutney
  • Roasted Tandoori Potatoes
  • Kale, Parmesan & Roasted Pumpkin Seed Salad
  • Yams, Lentils & Black Beans
  • Apple Crisp
