My publisher counted the number of times the Métis staple Bannock was mentioned in Song of Batoche. Let’s just say the Métis ate a lot of bannock. And I still do (because it’s delicious).
I remember my Métis grandma baking round after round of bannock in a wood fire oven in the old summer kitchen on my uncle's ranch in Alberta. Hover your mouse over the image below for her Bannock recipe.
