tourtiere du Lac-Saint-Jean 02.jpg

Detail of a tourtiere du Lac-Saint-Jean, a French-Canadian meal from the region of Saguenay and Lac St-Jean in the Province of Quebec. Often a traditional part of the Christmas Eve reveillon and New Year's Eve meal in Quebec, the tourtieres of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean area are slow-cooked deep-dish meat pies made with potatoes and various meats (often including wild game) cut into small cubes.
