Canadian cuisine is hardly original. In gastronomic terms, Canadians do not shine with imagination. When asked what to try in Canada, french fries, burgers and donuts come to mind. However, something unique in this regard, the founders of hockey still have. Each province has its own traditional dish. Quebec is famous for ice cream, which consists of snow and maple syrup, and rural residents collect and harvest young fern shoots.

Victoriously marching around the planet, the year of the eastern monkey, decided to look into a small town with the unpretentious name Granby, which was leisurely located in the southern spurs of Quebec. The city-forming enterprise of this small (only 70K inhabitants) village is the zoo, one of the largest in Canada.
