Chef Candace — whose name is Nawatiin Kwe, meaning Calm Water Woman — is an Anishinaabe entrepreneur from Aundeck-Omni-Kaning on Mantoulin Island. Her passion for food started as a child, and continued to grow over the years as she helped prepare foods for lunches, events, and ceremonies in her community. An interest in wellness and nutrition, emerging from more than 10 years as a frontline worker, also informs her approach to sourcing and preparing healthy, local, seasonal and traditional foods and medicines, like her Cedar Tea kits. Chef Candace has prepared this meal to share with us, inspired by the traditional foods and connection to the land of her First Nation family.
Three Sisters Soup
This hearty fall soup is centered around a mix of beans, corn and squash — the “3 Sisters” — the three main agricultural crops of many First Nations in North America. Variations on this ingenious form of self-fertilizing companion planting have been cultivated by groups as geographically diverse as the Canadian Iroquois and the Mesoamerican Maya.
A delicious mashup of North American dishes — indigenous, Mexican and colonial — that has become a powwow favourite and signature dish in the First Nations culinary renaissance. A fresh scone — a golden friend disc of wheat dough — is heaped with a thick, meaty sauce of ground beef, onions, peppers, tomatoes & spices, and then topped with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, salsa, sour cream and green onions.
Also available vegetarian with kidney bean chili sauce
Juicy Canadian berries topped with a golden, buttery crumble of oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

Chef Candace is an Indigenous entrepreneur who has worked in the Indigenous community as a frontline worker over the last fifteen years. Candance’s Catering was born out of a lifelong passion for food and has become another way to serve my community. Ceremony and connection to the land is a big part of my life, and my family’s life as Anishinaabe people. My dream is to travel North America and beyond to build relationships with communities, gain knowledge about food, plants and medicines and share these stories and knowledge with the world.
