Pâté Chinois
This meat treat is pretty similar to shepherd’s pie, but instead of crediting it to a sheep-herder, the Canadians name-check the Chinese — “pâté chinois” literally means “Chinese pie” — for reasons that are still unclear. Murky origins aside, your standard pate chinois contains layers of beef, creamed corn, and mashed potatoes.
