How about chicken N biscuits?
It seems I remember some of our southern members not understanding the term used for shredded chicken and gravy served on biscuits. That might be a northern dish.

You were misinformed --- Popular at breakfast? --Yes --- Popular in the dish "Shrimp and Grits" ( N&S Carolina) Yes --- Every meal? --- Not hardly!!

Tell that to my daughter (born and raised in MA) who has grits for breakfast almost every morning since she was barely old enough to talk

Hmmm...it seems to me Lytle missed a few important things in the prairie provinces. We westerners will forgive him as it seems eastern folks don't pay much attention to us out here. ;)

Winnipeg is justifiably famous for its Rye Bread. Manitoba also has pickerel and smoked goldeye which is such a treat that the Minnesota symphony used to come to town and clean out all the goldeye in Winnipeg.

From Manitoba to Alberta all things Ukrainian and Russian in origin are famous. The kubasa and perohe are incredible and I could wax poetic about it all.

I believe there was some mention of Alberta beef...we all know my feelings about that so I'll just shut up now. LOL.

Theres a ton more, but really when you talk about Northern food you have to look at the ethnic settlements in those areas to give you a clue about what the food will look like.

Jessica, I know you likely meant Northern US, but I couldn't let it go by.

Goodweed, thank goodness you mentioned the maple syrup. Did you also mention the cheddar cheese? I believe Ontario is famous for it.

My first thoughts regarding "Northern" food was Minnesota, which I am most familiar with. It's a melting pot of fabulous food and I couldn't even begin to mention any "one" thing it would be known for. It's ALL good.

Guess it depends on your definition of "northern."

I recently placed a post on this topic where I poked a bit of fun at my Northern neighbors. It was brought to my attention that my comments could be insulting and ill received by some. It was not my intent to be condescending, but rather, humorous. I apologize to any who were offended by those comments. I have many great friends in Sault Ste. Marie, ONT, fishing buddies, fellow church members, cooking buddies, etc. We poke fun at each other all the time, and expect to receive the same. That is all I was doing.

I value the friendships I have here in D.C. and will try not to be insulting to anyone. Again, I apologize for my behavior to my "North of the Border" friends on D.C.

On the lighter side, Alix, the cheddar cheese from Balderson Ontario is some of the finest cheddar I have ever had. The company brand for this incredible cheese is Balderson Heritage Cheddar. It has won numerous awards. Cheese in general is a wonderful thing in Northern Ontario. And the brook trout are legendary.

But I smell better and have a kinder disposition.

Okay, speaking from the "Great WET North", better known as the Canadian West Coast, I would agree with Lytle that some of the classier restaurants do tend to serve game meats and they are popular more in the interior, but here on the coast the taste is very eclectic and I would say on the lighter/fresher side

Salmon, of course is very popular
all forms of shellfish (I know Uncle Bob, a real waste on me - and yes, they do usually come from the East Coast)
Actually you can say seafood in general
Salads of all kinds and sizes (entree or side)
Chicken, served broiled, roasted, grilled

Comfort food would include
chowders, chili, stew
pasta with just about any kind of sauce
fresh breads - plain or slathered with garlic and or melted cheese

Yes, Alix, when mentioning Canada, you can't forget the cheese and maple syrup, but how about
Tourtiere
Poutine
Butter Tarts
fries and gravy
and one I grew up on in the winter, hot chocolate with a small scoop of ice cream!
oh, almost forgot....the Saskatoon berry Delish!
