Tourtière around the world

A Tourtière is an old Quebec tradition that long ago spread across Canada. It's basically a flaky crust covering a filling made of ground meat and spices. The meat varies depending where you are; in Montréal it's usually ground pork, in Gaspé it might to be salmon, out in the bush a combination of pork and whatever you can catch locally. (Hares are supposed to be good.)

So I figured, OK, I can do that, although hares seem awfully boring. Turned out pretty good.
