We have an interesting and varied group of nominees for this summer’s COTQ. Since we had quite a few nominees (some of which were similar to each other and/or to cuisines we have already covered), I tried to streamline the voting process by combining/eliminating where appropriate. Please place your vote by clicking the knife-and-fork icon on your favorite of the choices below. One vote per HO, please! I’ll leave the voting open until Friday, July 9. Thanks HOs!

Thanks for organizing.
Does it mean the style of cooking? Or it’s more about the specific seafood or fish that is regional?
Good question. I’m hoping for style. Some types of seafood aren’t available everywhere.
Just a reminder to like just ONE post above to cast your vote. If you liked more than one, please unlike one or let me know which one to count!
Mediterranean is my vote.
It means the style of cooking found in the Maritime provinces of Canada and New England in the States.
Lobster Rolls, fried clams, blueberry pie, Acadian food , clam chowder, seafood chowder, biscuits (not the same as southern biscuits), rappie pie, fish and chips.
There is a heavy British, Irish,Scottish and French Cdn influence on the Cdn Maritime foods. Many of the foods in New England and the Maritime provinces are similar. Geographically, the regions together stretch from Massachusetts up to Newfoundland and Labrador, including the Gulf of the St Lawrence and Gaspé peninsula.
I will edit and add links.
10 Atlantic Canadian recipes
The summer foods of Prince Edward Island, the Gaspé, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire.
I see!! Thanks a lot.
Oh now I’m really bummed Maritime is probably not going to make the cut! But hubs loves BBQ so there’s that - International BBQ seems interesting.
BBQ is interesting! I just got home, and my first thought is does that mean grilling or smoking or both?
I’m thinking (hoping!) since it’s International BBQ it includes grilling too. I’m going to get down with some Asian street food style skewers!
We will just call it . Meat , poultry, or seafood , , vegetables or anything you desire cooked over wood or charcoal.
