First Nations traditions meet fine dining

This story is part of a week-long series exploring how we as Canadians define “Canadian food,” and how it has evolved in modern Canada.

There has been renewed interest in the emergence of First Nations traditional foods in the restaurant business, in no small part thanks to Canadian TV celebrity chef David Wolfman on APTN’s Cooking with the Wolfman and his drool-worthy food truck, which graced the streets of Toronto during this summer’s Pan Am Games.

But now that the games are over, where can you turn for a taste of traditional First Nations food? While options may be restricted to Canada’s largest cities, chefs are finding innovative ways to bring their favourite foods to those who know where to find them.
