Lakely Loves: Wild Rice (Manoomin)
Wednesday Nov. 14th, 2018 | 6-9pm
In his mission to spread the idea of a distinct Upper Midwest style of cuisine, Chef Nathan Berg contends that there is no single more important food/ingredient than “manoomin”, or native-harvested wild rice. Deeply intertwined with the very cultural fabric and history of many of the Anishinaabe peoples, manoomin is an ancient food that is native to these lands – northern Wisconsin, northern Minnesota and southern Ontario. As such, it is a constant on the menus here at The Lakely and we are proud to feature it for this special dinner, which we are offering as a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn more in-depth about this fascinating and regionally-important food.
Chef Berg will be preparing a six-course dinner, each course of which will feature the remarkable versatility of wild rice. He will speak briefly about his own personal experiences with wild rice and it’s prominence as a cornerstone in Upper Midwestern cuisine. This is a truly one-of-a-kind dinner and educational experience with no small cultural significance. Seating is limited so get your reservations today!
Dinner starts at 6:00pm. Sorry, but we cannot accommodate significant dietary restrictions for these events.
