Our Canadian family members and comrades will be pleased to know that Nanaimo bars made their debut in Tianjin last night, which may be a first in the whole of China for all we know. At any rate, we’re claiming the premiere Nanaimo bar cultural overture in Sino-Canadian relations.
We shared them with some friends, who also took some to their neighbours, and I suppose our teachers will also get some on Monday.
My mom mailed a mix from Canada, and found a recipe so Jessica can make them from scratch when the mix runs out.
Those of you who don’t know what Nanaimo bars are can take this opportunity to pause and reflect with wonder on the superior cultural refinement and achievements of your neighbour to the north.
