I just learned that the AARP website has a Native Origins page, celebrating the lives and culture of 50-plus American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. Something to look forward to as I get closer to that age bracket!
On the page they have a food segment that features Emmy-winning chef Loretta Barrett Oden, a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, helping folks prepare nutritious meals with a little Native flair.
In this episode she makes Salmon & Oyster Potato Cakes with Chef Freddie Bitsoie, who is the Executive Chef at the Mitsitam Cafe in Washington D.C.
In this next episode she makes something I know my family loves, Buffaloaf aka Bison Meatloaf.
And last but not least, check out this healthy looking Three Sisters Salad!
