In China, eating out is one of the most accepted ways to treat guests. Similar to Westerners drinking in a bar with friends, eating together in China is a way to socialize and deepen friendship There are common rules for inviting guests over. When the guest of honor enters into the room, the hosts stand until the guest of honor is seated.The host then orders the dishes brought, and the guest should be silent. When the dishes arrive, the meal begins with a toast from the host, and the guests then make a toast in turn in the honor of the host. The guest of honor should be the first one to start the meal. The best food in a dish should be left for the guest of honors. To show appreciation, guests are supposed to pay elaborate compliments to the food and tap index finger and middle finger on the table three times. When the hostess says her food is not good enough, the guest must disagree with her, and tell her it is the best food he has ever tasted. At the end of the meal, the guest of honor should make a speech about the host. If the meal is held in a restaurant, Guests should never let the host pay. A guest who let the host pay or “split(s) the bill” is very ungracious and unpolite to the host. Table Manners Canadian cuisine varies widely from region to region. Generally, the traditional cuisine of English Canada is closely related to British and American cuisine, while the traditional cuisine of French Canada has evolved from French cuisine and the winter provisions of fur traders. The basis of both groups is on seasonal, fresh ingredients and preserves. The cuisine includes baked foods, wild game, and gathered foods.

Wild Rice Almost always sold as a dried whole grain, wild rice is high in protein, the amino acid lysine and dietary fiber, and low in fat. Like true rice, it does not contain gluten.

Maple syrup is most often eaten with waffles, pancakes, oatmeal, crumpets and French toast It is sometimes used as an ingredient in baking, the making of candy, preparing desserts, or as a sugar source and flavoring agent in making beer. Oka cheese was originally manufactured by the Trappist Monks, who are located in Oka, Quebec, Canada. The cheese is named after the town. It originated in 1893. Since that time, Quebec has become a major producer of Canadian Cheese. Oka cheese has a pungent aroma and soft creamy flavour, sometimes described as nutty and fruity. The cheese, which is made from cow's milk is covered with a copper-orange, hand-washed rind. Its distinct flavour sets it apart from more common cheeses such as colby and cheddar, and does not go through a cheddaring process. Oka Cheese + =

The sugars and other dissolved solids do not freeze, but the water does, allowing a more concentrated grape must to be pressed from the frozen grapes, resulting in a smaller amount of more concentrated, very sweet wine. With ice wines, the freezing happens before the fermentation, not afterwards. Ice wine has a taste of refreshing sweetness balanced by high acidity. Salmon is a popular food. Classified as an "oily fish", salmon is considered to be healthy due to the fish's high protein, high Omega-3 fatty acids, and high vitamin D content. salmon Sashimi Salmon Salmons are smoked, pan-fried, steamed, broiled or it can be eaten raw Here are some "cheesy" food : * If you are the recipient of a toast, keep your glass at arm’s length—never drink from it. Instead, simply nod your head and graciously say, “Thank you.”

* Don’t put your purse, keys, sunglasses, or eyeglasses on the table.
* Take food out of your mouth the way it went in. If a piece of steak fat went into your mouth with a fork, spit it out onto the fork.
