Saturday morning in Bella Coola starts with a trip to the hall to try one of our Aboriginal BEST student’s specialty… Apache Fry Bread.
Matilda ‘Tilly’ Henry has perfected a light, fluffy, scrumptious version of a Native staple for most meals… fry bread (aka. bannock).
Matilda learned to make this thinner version of fry bread from her Apache mother-in-law. She invited us to the community hall to try her community-famous Indian Tacos that she sells every Saturday.
Here’s her elevator pitch that she’s been crafting to introduce herself and her tasty treats:
“At Tilly’s Apache Fry Bread, we create delicacies like Indian Tacos and Apache Burgers. I invite you to experience the traditional food of Geronimo – the Apache Warrior – in a new taste sensation. We bridge our worlds through food… satisfying your cravings one fry bread at a time.”
As you can see by the comments from our BEST facilitators, Chris Rand and Kristin Kozuback, we agree!
Gotta love when we get to do ‘market research’ … supporting local entrepreneurs by shopping =). Thanks, Tilly… now let’s figure out how you can freeze them so I can take some home!
