Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? Around 1825, La Cuisinière Bourgeoise, was written as a guide for those employed in the service of middle class households. This volume was one of the first in Canada to address the subject in a comprehensive manner. It includes information on basic foods such as meats, eggs and vegetables and provides extensive details on their preparation.

Did You Know? What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Canada from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated. The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.
