Marquette, MI – 11/04/2011 – A good crowd showed up once again for the First Nation food tasting gathering. Moose, venison, turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and all sorts of vegetables common to native culture were served to the community. The ever-so-popular fry bread was also available, even as a delicious desert item.
Cooks and volunteers worked hard once again to serve up a delicious meal and event that provides a rich atmosphere with tasty food. Atmospheric, live music and speeches were given as the crowd formed lines, gathered the food and consumed the variety of dishes.
For the author, two years in a row at the Food Taster event have provided delectable memories. Be sure to follow the Center for Native American Studies at NMU for future food tasters and other native events.
