Bannock, Toronto

Bannock restaurant, Bannock Toronto, Bannock, Canadian cuisine, traditional Canadian foodBannock pays homage to Canada’s culinary history.  It was the flat bread created by First Nations using ‘flour’ made from dried tubers or cattail spires. Then came the early traders who shared the Scot’s name for their wheat flour biscuits that were a staple in the earliest days of European settlement.  The dough was sometimes wrapped around a stick but most often it was baked over an open fire or shaped into hockey puck-sized rounds an cooked on a griddle.Bannock Chef Miheer Shete

This lively restaurant, aptly located just beside the Hudson’s Bay store in downtown Toronto,  is part of the Oliver & Bonacini group. 

Aside from winning Chopped Canada, it’s Chef de  Cuisine, Miheer Shete is a tremendous addition to the O&B team and living in Toronto can take on the challenge of melding that city’s multicultural palate with the food ways of Canada.  Bannock is all about  honest comfort food using as many local ingredients as possible from the griddled pickerel “bannacos” –  soft, in-house made tacos with pickerel and caviar tartar sauce or vegetable cobb salad, a hearty plate of Prairie grain pilaf with devilled eggs and tomato cucumber relish to the one and only Arcadian court chicken pot pie.
