Wild rice, called manoomin in Ojibwe, is a culturally significant plant and one of the staples of our region’s Indigenous feasts, according to the Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL). Now, you can learn to make it at home!
Join KFPL and Curve Lake First Nation cook Janice McCue for a Feasting Together online cooking demonstration at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Mar. 2, 2022.
“Feasting Together stemmed from a successful pilot session where people learned to make fry bread,” explained Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “Food is a pillar of so many cultures, and we realized that our area’s diverse Indigenous populations have so much to offer when it comes to food. People want to learn; people want to see how it’s done right in front of them. This program presents that opportunity.”
According to a release from the library, this event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
