FESTIVAL BOOK

tawâw: Progressive Indigenous Cuisine

Born to Cree parents and raised by a Métis father and Mi’kmaw-British mother, Shane M. Chartrand has spent the past 15 years learning about his history, visiting with other First Nations peoples, gathering and sharing knowledge and stories, and creating dishes that combine his diverse interests and express his unique personality. The result is <em>tawâw: Progressive Indigenous Cuisine</em>, a gorgeous book that traces Chartrand’s culinary. Containing over 75 recipes along with personal stories, interviews with Chartrand’s culinary influences and family members, and contemporary and archival photographs of his journey, <em>tawâw </em>is part cookbook, part exploration of ingredients and techniques, and part chef’s personal journal.
