Better together


How do you fit all of our classic Canadian dishes into one cottage weekend? Mash them up (poutine, meet back bacon and beer; beef, meet rye and ginger). Here’s the ultimate Canada Day menu.

A toast from coast to coast

Salt-and-vinegar and ketchup chips tanked in U.S. markets. That’s okay, more for us.


Lobster Roll Montreal Bagel Spread

A mixture of whipped cream cheese and ricotta makes a light, airy base for this brunch mashup that falls somewhere between a classic Maritime lobster roll filling and a cream cheese and lox topping for chewy-crisp Montreal bagels. This tasty spread lasts a couple of days in the fridge—enjoy it the first day on your favourite kind of bagels, then use the leftovers as an elegant cracker topper with afternoon cocktails the following day.—Annabelle Waugh

1/2 cup cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup extra-smooth ricotta cheese

About Cottage Life

Going North! Cottage Life toasts Canada’s 150th birthday, with an exclusive interview with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on what the cottage means to him, Canuck-inspired party recipes (beer and back bacon poutine, anyone?), and essential flag etiquette. The issue also includes workshop intel every Canadian should have, renowned Canadian writers and photographers sharing their views on our country from the cottage, a peek into our national official cottage, Harrington Lake, and why now is the time to plant a tree at the lake. PLUS, meet an American who, after a lifetime cottaging in Canada, has a thing or two to teach us about summers at the lake. Don’t miss this one-stop guide to celebrating Canada at the cottage.
