Out of Old Manitoba Kitchens

  Author:   Christine Hanlon    
  Publisher:  MacIntyre Purcell Publishing Inc.

Out of Old Manitoba Kitchens tells the story of the province’s early inhabitants through the foods they prepared. Feast on dozens of photographs, more than 80 recipes and countless recollections. Discover how Indigenous pemmican was the perfect recipe for propelling the fur trade, how Scottish bannock became a staple for the First Nations, and why a Manitoba social always ends with kielbasa. Tuck into tales of Franco-Manitoban tourtière, Icelandic vinarterta, and Mennonite rollkuchen. From the campfires of the Métis buffalo hunt and the outdoor kitchens of the early settlers, to the bread ovens of the Ukrainian immigrant and the dining halls of the Winnipeg General Strike, Manitobans of all stripes have contributed to a rich culinary heritage. They bring to the table a delectable spread of culturally diverse dishes, adapted to the local landscape and influenced by a determination to survive, and then thrive, on food from the forest, rivers, lakes, and prairie soil. The tastes and aromas of those early kitchens come to life on pages filled with memories, hand-written recipes, and colourful images from bygone days. Savour the stories, pictures, and flavours from Out of Old Manitoba Kitchens.
