“When the OHEA came up with a Canadian ingredients cookbook, I was thrilled. I love to see recipes using locally grown Canadian foods, so I started thinking about recipes that would include some of my favourite Canadian foods and was inspired to create this recipe because I love maple syrup and seeing the pumpkin fields in the fall.” —Amy
