First Nations Bannock Restaurant in Canada

We’ve gone through crucial times as bannock is still making its way in the restaurant world.  We first set up as a bannock stand in Westbank, BC, years ago.  We experienced success in our little venture, and sought feedback from our customers about opening a First Nations restaurant.  What is a First Nations restaurant?  If you have been to a Mexican restaurant, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, etc., there are now First Nations restaurants opening up across Canada! We introduced a quick bread, called fry-bread, or as most of Canada knows it, Bannock. Bannock has long been a staple of the First Nations/Indigenous people of North America.  Original ingredients included roots, berries, ground corn, and Saskatoon berries, to make a dense bread.  Thanks to modern advances in wheat processing, Kekuli is able to create a bannock that is soft, light, fluffy, and deep-fried in 100% canola oil.  Bannock texture is between that of a scone and a doughnut!  It’s different, and we are able to use it as a bun for most of sandwiches and burgers on our menu!

A little inspiration of Dessert Bannock

A little inspiration of Dessert Bannock

Sharon Bond-Hogg, of Kekuli Cafe loves cooking! A pinch of this, a dash of that, a palm of this and an eyeball of that, and some good old fashioned Inspiration, makes for some yummy desserts and bannock treats at Kekuli Cafe! Here we have a Berry Bannock Pudding recipe that we make at Kekuli Cafe, inspired by Dolly Watts, who is now retired on the Island. I wish I would have met her years ago, when I was researching my business plan and ideas, because I was scared to open my restaurant! How would this be perceived? Well, all good, and all said and done! Two restaurants and more to come! So here is a recipe video of our Berry Bannock pudding! Enjoy! Berry Bannock...
