People of Kolkata are very familiar with the sweet meat called Ladycanie which is actually derived from the word Lady Canning whose actual name was Charlotte Canning the wife of Charles Canning the Governor General and Viceroy of India. Unfortunately, she died of malaria and was buried at Barrackpore but a memorial was built at the northern veranda of the church. Before her arrival to the city, the chef of a prominent sweet meat shop was called and was asked to invent a new dessert in the honor of Lady Canning so the chef invented what we now know as Ladycanie.
