HISTORY OF OKANAGAN CUISINE

Wild Food: A Culinary Adventure in the Okanagan Nation

home_image

For most people in our modern society, food is acquired at a supermarket, and often heated up at home in a microwave oven. Heavily processed prepared meals and snacks are handy, but eaten to excess can cause major health problems like obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

Wild Food is the antidote to boring, unhealthy food. Wild Food takes you on an adventure every week, hunting for big game, fishing for wild salmon, digging for little known edible roots and berries, and then turning those healthy foods into a spectacular meal.

Host Tracey Bonneau takes viewers on a culinary journey on APTN’s Wild Food program, introducing us not just to aboriginal foods and cooking techniques, but also to the spectacular beauty of BC’s Okanagan Valley, and the fascinating culture of the Okanagan First Nation.

The Wild Food site is designed for people who want to join that exploration. Sign on as a Contributor, and you can post your own recipes directly to the site. We’ll share our favourites with all our friends on Twitter and Facebook! Join our community of health minded food lovers in the culinary adventure that is Wild Food: Quest Out West.
