Our favourite recipes for an epic Canada Day celebration
From irresistible barbecue classics to mouth-watering desserts, these recipes will be a hit at any Canada Day fête.
Canada's Ultimate Barbecue-Smoked Ribs
Saucy spice-rubbed ribs are smoked for an added layer of flavour. Look for wood smoking chips, such as apple or hickory, in the barbecue section of the grocery or hardware store. Be sure to check that your chips are food-safe before grilling.
Best Maple Butter Tarts
Make your own delectable custardy tarts instead of buying them. We've subbed in the very Canadian ingredient maple syrup for the more common corn syrup. Plus, we've included variations on the classic, with chocolate and pecans instead of raisins.
Mini Lobster Rolls
Assemble these four-bite lobster rolls right before serving so the bread doesn't get soggy. We like to use mini brioche rolls, but dinner rolls work well, too!
