    One thought on “Original Local: Indigenous Foods, Stories, and Recipes from the Upper Midwest”

    1. I have been enjoying this cookbook very much. I like that along with great recipes, there is history and information about the native peoples of upper midwest.

    2. I really like this cookbook, since it is more than just recipes. Lots of interesting stories about the history of the foods, issues surrounding them, and then some fun recipes using them. Even though I am not Native American, I enjoy harvesting and cooking real wild rice, chokecherries, Juneberries, etc. I made the pumpkin bangs (fry bread; I had never heard the term bangs in reference to food)) and it was so good! There are more recipes, especially the wild rice ones, that I am anxious to try.

    3. This cookbook is something special. It is full of resources, advice, history, and personal stories. There are even listings of some shops in the MidWest where you can buy supplies at the end of each chapter. Some of the recipes I've tried didn't turn out as expected because of cooking times not quite working out, but this is a great pick if you're a foodie, if you live in the MidWest and have access to the foods featured in the book, or if you are interested in indigenous American culture.
