How a failed search for Indigenous food delivery led me to explore ‘Winnipeg’s’ culinary scene
While we were in the city this past August, a few of us from the IndigiNews team met at Feast Cafe and Bistro to have lunch with my two aunties who live nearby. We shared memories about my mooshum, Murray McKenzie, who was a photojournalist and radio broadcaster in Manitoba. We shared some big laughs, all while the smell of freshly baked bannock surrounded us. My auntie gifted us with an abundance of sage. It was a beautiful experience, beginning to end.
