Ten families, ten stories

Ten families, ten stories

We asked ten families to tell us about a festive meal that is meaningful to them. Around their tables, you’ll come to learn more about Québec’s contemporary multiethnic society and Canada’s Francophonie, as each family presents its culinary heritage.

While they share many common foods, local families make their own choices and approach their food heritage differently. The video testimonials featured in this section illustrate these similarities and differences. Each clip describes an aspect of our culinary practices, so you’ll come across the families more than once as you explore the four themes of Sharing the Meal!

It’s time to celebrate, and no celebration is complete without food!
