Canadian Indigenous Cookbooks to Get You Inspired

What is Canadian cuisine, if not the diverse culinary expertise from abroad and at home? Before the era of European colonization, Indigenous communities across this land have been cultivating stories of traditional recipes over generations. These stories of friendship, family and flavour are as diverse as the many Indigenous communities from coast to coast. As we continue to learn more about Indigenous culture in Canada, we have the opportunity to share in their rich history through recipes in these cookbooks. Written by some of Canada’s most notable Indigenous culinary experts, this non-exhaustive list provides an in-depth look into Indigenous cuisine and culture.
