I thought that giving away all our family secrets regarding our special Secret Ojibwe cook book would be a great idea. Spreading the food so to speak.
I know that many of you will not recognize these dishes but they are truly the ''Best Keep Secret on the Rez''.
The first dish that is presented is the now World Famous ''Kosher Winnebagel''...This Ojibwe/Jewish sensation is wonderful for a brief snack on your way to an important Pow Wow or get in a bite before sundown on Friday.
Next up we jump to the Mediterranean to enjoy the Spam Pizza This is especially good with a bottle of grappa overlooking the Rez. Remember the Spaghetti Westerns, Clint and Chief Dan George love this dish. With Spam Pizza you achieve the special balance kown as Rez commodity.
The ever famous ''Indian Taco'' once known as a Taco has become one of the fastest growing quick snacks in the country, Indian Country that is. It's said that the Taco is a Mexican thing, but on the Rez we know better, although we do use ''hot sauce'' imported from Mexico, making it popular in two cultures.
Kung Pow Venison is a solid choice when your having the rellies over for dinner. A Chef of Ojibwe/Korean ancestry named Park Two-Pows Lost Dear is credited with inventing this wonderful dish. Taking the Kung from the Korean side of the family and the Pow Wow from the grand party that was invented by the Ojibwe we now have a dish that crosses the Pacific Ocean. Rez Dogs are high on this dish.
Another dish for those of you who are vegetarians. Vegetarian is Ojibwe for ''Can't Hunt'' is the Wild Rice and Tofu burger. The Wild Rice is harvested at a special time of the year by the Ojibwe in very secret lakes and rivers. Once it is harvested we hire the French to pick Tofu. They learned this secret when they gather truffles. Only the French would stoop to pick a mushroom. Once this is mixed and put on a hamburger bun with kosher mustard, ketchup and pickles, we have the ''Wild Tofu Burger'' for those of you that want to ''walk on the wild side''. Vegetarians are well know as wild and crazy guys/gals.
Next we travel to the Land Down Under for brekkie (Australian for breakfast). The mix of maple syrup and roo sausage with a side of Whichity Grubs is a treat for the real thrill seekers. Down Under it's know as the Brekkie that Slides Down.
The last, but not least of the entries is the Ojibwe/Irish O'Possum stew. Need I say more!
If you have never tried any of these multi-cultural dishes you are not living, well perhaps after eating one you won't be living, you can order the list of fine meals from,
