Minneapolis, MN 55401
Culinary ethnobotanist, artist, photographer, writer, and cook, Tashia Hart will sign and share her new book, The Good Berry Cookbook: Harvesting and Cooking Wild Rice and Other Wild Foods at the Minnesota Historical Society Press booth at the October 30th Mill City Farmers Market. Books will be available for purchase in the booth.
The Good Berry Cookbook shares the story of manoomin, wild rice, told through cultural practice, traditional ecological knowledge, scientific observation, and inspired dishes that feed the body and senses.
In the book, Tashia shares inspired combinations like Bison and Sunchoke Quick Stew, Nutty Manoomin Patties with Ogaa (Walleye) Cheeks and Fiddlehead-Nettle Puree, and Sweet Potato Corn Pudding with Rose Sauce. Sweets are on the menu as well: Manoomin Chocolate Pie, Manoomin Smoothies, and Toasted Manoomin and Bagaan (Hazelnut) Butter Chocolate Cups.
“The Good Berry Cookbook is so much more than a beautiful collection of recipes and photos―it’s a soulful conversation with Anishinaabe writer and cook Tashia Hart, as she blends intimate family stories with her deep love for indigenous plants, reminding us of the ways in which our food nurtures and heals us.”
Diane Wilson, author of The Seed Keeper and Spirit Car: Journey to a Dakota Past
