Restaurant Review - Wanuskewin

A surprising number of foods were first cultivated by indigenous people in North and South America. Potatoes, tomatoes, corn, beans, chilies, squash. You'll find many of these ingredients on the menu at Wanuskewin Heritage Park, which celebrates 6,000 years of habitation by local plains people. Read my review of the Wanuskewin restaurant in the Saskatoon Star Phoenix.

Three Sisters Bison Chili refers to the combination of corn, beans and squash, which was a staple of many indigenous cultures across North and South America.

Fluffy bannock and strawberry jam.
The restaurant at Wanuskewin is cafeteria style -  a great place for lunch and a walk in the prairie.
6 Penner Road (a short drive north of Saskatoon)

Just read your haskap recipe in the Star Phoenix! thanks. I just said yesterday that I wondered what to do with the berries rapidly ripening in my back yard.
