All Canadian. When I think of Canadian food, I think of hearty fare. Big bold meats and game, seasonal vegetables, and the right herbs can define any Canadian's palate. This dish is big, bold, and satisfying. and it proves that everything we Canadians need to eat well and healthy is right at our doorstep! The majority of these ingredients are locally or Canadian grown/made. The bison is raised on Wolfe Island, Ont. The wine is also made in Picton, Ont. The vegetables and herbs are locally grown, and the maple syrup is locally made. The meat is lean, the vegetables are healthy, and everything is available locally. The aroma you produce in your house is sure to bring the whole family to the table without hesitation!
This dish from the February 2005 "Eat Well for Less" set of six budget-wise menus is ideal for Sunday dinner because it leaves leftovers for another night and possibly even sandwich fillings for weekday lunches. Root vegetables are the economical in-season choice.
