Not everyone serves turkey during the holidays. When Claudia and Dirk Van Wijk, of the Madawaska Kanu Centre, need to feed a hungry crowd, they turn to their roots and serve schnitzel!
“My mother Christa immigrated to Canada from Germany becoming a world-champion whitewater kayaker and co-founder of the first ever whitewater paddling school in Canada, Madawaska Kanu Centre. She brought with her many treasured German family recipes which made their way onto the menu for the hungry paddlers at MKC. I continue the tradition now, ensuring delicious home-cooked meals inspired by our German heritage remain at the ?heart? of MKC, along with world-class whitewater paddling! I�ve added my own special touch by using local ingredients to enhance flavour and build relationships with our local farmers in the Ottawa Valley.” — Claudia Van Wijk, Madawaska Kanu Centre
