This simple cookbook offers a great introduction to tradional native peoples' cuisine. The chefs/authors provide a thorough backgrounder regarding their respective careers, foods, and cultures. The recipes are very simple and easy to follow. I can't wait to try cooking smoked salmon on bannock. I just had it at the Squamish-Lilwat Cultural Centre in Whistler and it was amazing :)
