A Culture’s Language And Murder

During a discussion about a stellar British mystery (Breathe by Cari Hunter), my better half suggested that I might want to include a translation page of sorts for my readers of Body In The Bush who aren’t familiar with Canadian terms or aspects of our culture that make us unique. I thought it was a great idea, and I’m kicking off that series today. As an aside, the series may occasionally be interrupted by reviews or bits of murder mystery knowledge, but I’ll continue the ‘Canadiana’ as long as I can think of things. So, let’s discuss…

Butter tarts – A Canadian invention comprised of a pastry shell filled with a sweet concoction of sugar, butter and egg. You may find this treat elsewhere in the world, but we invented it. How does it relate to Body In The Bush? Butter tarts are Anne’s and Anais’ favourite treats.

So tell me, what’s your favourite pastry-related treat?
