Week 5 – Connor General ‘Wild Rice Pilaf’

Connor General, a recent culinary school graduate,  visited the kitchen this week and showed us how to use traditional ingredients like wild rice, squash and cranberries to make a modern dish inspired by Italian risotto. We also grilled two different types of sausages on the charbroiler: Wild Boar with Cranberries, and Elk Honey Lager Apple sausage.

Wild rice is not rice at all! It’s a type of aquatic grass and has been harvested by Indigenous people in North America for about 12,000 years.
