Canada: Sault Ste Marie, Ontario – Group of Seven Food

Monday, August 5th, 2019

At the Heritage Discovery Center we were treated to a meal described in the journals of Group of Seven painters who created their art here about a hundred years ago. The first course for us had been an entire meal for them – about ten pounds of onions. Though it doesn’t sound tantalizing, it was scrumptious, as they caramelized the onions and served them with homemade bread and butter.

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

The Group of Seven were Canadian painters who, in the early 20th century, especially enjoyed painting Canadian scenery.
