Wild Food: Quest Out West Debuts Tonight

 

We’re thrilled to announce the premier of our new show Wild Food: Quest Out West will premiere tonight on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network! The APTN Series Premiere will air at 8 p.m. Eastern Time from Ontario to Newfoundland, and at 8 p.m. Mountain Time from Manitoba to BC. The show will air tomorrow, Sept. 10, in northern Canada, at 8 p.m. Central Time.

Wild Food is the antidote to boring, unhealthy food. Host Tracey Bonneau, a well known broadcaster and documentary producer from the Okanagan First Nation, takes viewers 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.

If you’d like to join the Wild Food movement, you can easily do so by going to our site at wildfoodwest.com, clicking the ‘Contribute’ button at the top of the web page, and registering as a Contributor. Upload your own recipes and photos from your computer or mobile device, and even pinpoint the location where that recipe comes from.

Also, go check out our recipes from chefs on the show or from other contributors by clicking on the ‘Recipes’ link. There’s not there yet as this is our first day of airing the show, but with your help we hope to create a virtual smorgasbord of great aboriginal cuisine.

In this first episode, Tracey explores the traditions and flavours of the Saskatoon Berry, which for centuries has been a critical source of food for the Okanagan People, and visits the historic Grist Mill to see how the introduction of milled flour created a fusion between Okanagan and European cooking methods. We hope you’ll enjoy us as we promote healthy, traditional aboriginal foods and cooking methods, and feel free to join us online with your own recipes and stories!
