Calgary’s diversity (Various ethnic cuisine)
As you all know, Canada is a country of diversity. People with various origins from all over the world live together. Instead of a melting pot, it is more of a beautifully patched work of different ethnicities. With various peoples mean various foods.
Today, the office would like to introduce various ethnic cuisine, which we can enjoy in Calgary. First, we would like to pay homage to Calgary and Alberta.
Next comes Japanese food because this office is the Consulate-General of Japan. Today, the office dares to introduce cutlet curry (katsu-curry), not sushi nor tempura.
Let us go on! We start with East Asia. Please imagine a globe and go westward.
West Asia to the Middle East.
Next comes Europe.
We can enjoy cuisine from Africa.
Then, we come back to the Americas. First, the North America and the Caribbean.
Lastly, the South America.
In all, the office introduced twenty-four ethnic cuisines, additional to Alberta beef steak, bison burger and cutlet curry. All cuisine is particularly important because those people brought one from their original homeland. There were several reasons why people came to Canada, Calgary. But it is wonderful thing to see those cuisine popular in Canada, Calgary, is it not?
Please go to restaurants in which you are interested. And if you find fine cuisine, please let this office know. Your information is always welcomed.
Lastly, the writer uses his privilege and would like to introduce one cuisine. This is one of the most memorable one during his experience as a diplomat and he never thought he could have this food (right picture) in Calgary. This is an Afghan dish called the Kabuli-Polo. He ate this in Kabul, Afghanistan’s capital mid-1990.
