The Three Sisters are a key part of Indigenous culture and cooking. As they grow, bean vines climb up corn stalks, and the wide leaves of squash plants shade the ground for better growth, according to Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL). Learn how to combine these three crops into a hearty and filling dish in the next session of KFPL’s Feasting Together series.
According to a release from the library, Curve Lake First Nation chef Janice McCue will lead participants through making Three Sisters Mash over Zoom on Tuesday, Apr. 5, 2022, from 2 to 3 p.m.
“KFPL is very fortunate to have Janice lead these cooking demonstrations,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “Food is such an important pillar of cultures, and there’s an ever-growing interest in rediscovering Indigenous cuisines. Three Sisters Mash has a heritage that is as important as learning to make the dish itself.”
