We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is Treaty 4 territory and the traditional territory of the Anihšinābēk, Nêhiyawak, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota peoples, and the original home of the Métis/Michif Nation. We recognize that both Indigenous and Métis people are the spiritual and cultural keepers of their traditional lands and still to this day, continue to practice their values, languages, beliefs and knowledge.
Three local chefs will participate in a “mystery box” cooking challenge with the goal of winning over the hearts, minds and stomachs of our judges. The challenge involves the competitors being handed a box of ingredients and given a limited time frame to use all ingredients provided to prepare an amazing dish. Additionally, Regina Farmers’ Market vendors will supply proteins and produce. Chefs will also be provided with a simple pantry of canola oil, cream, butter, red wine vinegar and nine spices. Chefs are provided with a barbecue but are encouraged to bring their own pots, pans, knives, cutting boards, bowls, etc.
Our 2022 chefs:
- Aaron Ens (Fat Badger)
- Rob Reinhardt (Prairie Smoke and Spice)
- Roberto Flores (El Trapezone)
