Indigenous cuisine is unfortunately overlooked sometimes in the culinary world.
For chefs Enos Miller and Thomas Norton, Tea-N-Bannock has become a safe haven for healing and good food. Located at the edge of Little India in Toronto at the corner of Gerrard Street East and Greenwood Avenue, it is my third stop in my Fresh off the Plate series, a four-part look at restaurants that work tirelessly to bring the flavours of the past into the present and future.
“When you say to a friend, ‘Let’s go for Tea-N-Bannock,’ that means you’re gonna sit down like this and chat,” says owner Enos Miller.
Miller spent the mid-80s cooking at Slate Falls First Nation. He learned about First Nations traditions, including cooking, along with fishing, cabin building and smoking meat.
