The 2011 Top 10 Canadian Recipe Searches on Google


Last week, Google released its annual zeitgeist list, and included in the analysis was a compilation of the most searched recipes by Canadians in 2011. It was an interesting combination of foods, telling me we were mostly interested in cheap-and-cheerful comfort food, peppered with a little trendy fare and infused with an ethnic flavour or two.
The top recipe searches were as follows:

  1. Pork Tenderloin
  2. Pumpkin Pie
  3. Butter Chicken
  4. Quinoa Salad
  5. Cake Pops
  6. Tzatziki
  7. Macaroni Salad
  8. Red Velvet Cupcakes
  9. Rice Krispie Treats
  10. Shepherd’€™s Pie

I did a quick search of the SavvyMom recipe database, and am happy to report that we have recipes for a few of the items searched on Google this past year. I have linked to our recipes for you, if you would like to consider giving some of the most popular dishes of the year a try.

For me, the most surprising search on the list was probably macaroni salad. I recently left a job in catering, and can honestly say that in the past five years, I think we may have made a true macaroni salad one or twice.

Were these the recipes you were looking for this year? What do you think will be popular in 2012?
