Je suis Québecois.
Escargot: French Cuisine as in France. It is served in restaurants all over the world and certainly not associated with Québec.
Horse meat: My whole family (it is a rather large one) is from Québec, and have never heard of anyone eating horse meat within the last 50 years. My grandpa told me they used to eat it during and after the war (which he served in). We prefer deer and moose meat, sometimes bear even.
Fois gras: Another European dish, that is mostly served in classy American and European restaurants, this is not a popular dish in Canada for several reasons (blame Pamela Anderson )
Poutine: At least you gone one right...Quebec is the home of the best poutines on earth. They start getting good just North of Montréal, and they get better the farther north you travel. If you get the chance visit a "casse-croûte" and you will have the best poutine you ever tasted.
It's funny how many false stereotypes are associated with Canada.
By the way, Canadian Bacon is a joke we play on Americans.
I dare you to order a pizza in Canada and ask for Canadian bacon, they will laugh at you and say "You mean ham right?"

No recipe as such. I just melt some butter, add some finely chopped onion, lemon pepper spice and garlic before adding wine to taste. That's my base sauce to which I may add some Worchestershire and soy sauce to taste, depending on what I'm cooking.

Oh and on the topic of foie gras, Quebeckers like cretons, a pate made from veal and or pork. It's delicious on toast.edit on 7-7-2013 by aboutface because: (no reason given)
