My first tourtiere, that famous meat pie brought to Saskatchewan by settlers from French Canada. Curious, do you have tourtiere in your family tradition?
I used the recipe of the Marchand family of Bellevue, which was included in a new booklet on the history and flavours of that francophone region of Saskatchewan. Every year, mother and daughters get together and bake as many as 100 tourtieres for the Christmas season!
You can download the booklet here. The recipe for tourtiere is on page 66.
