It’s that time of year again when the Lake of the Woods Museum partners with our community members to offer a tasty experience of Kenora’s culinary diversity.

This program, spanning several weeks, will give you an opportunity to learn about, prepare, and taste a wide variety of ethnic foods. What better way to learn about a cultural group than to sample some of their traditional cuisine? You can even try preparing the food at home with the take-home recipes from each session.

All sessions will be held at the Lake of the Woods Museum, 300 Main Street South, Kenora.

Pre-registration is required and payment is required upon registration. We will take credit card payment – Visa or Mastercard – over the phone for your convenience.

You can do one, two, more or ALL sessions. Here is the line-up with the names of the lead presenters:

  • March 3 –   Sandra & Howard Olafson – Icelandic SRO
  • March 10 – Simo Lazreq – Spanish 
  • March 17 – Jocelyn Laffin & Alicia Filips – High English Tea SRO
  • March 24 – Theresa Jamieson and Daniel Yerxa – Anishinaabe Feast 

Bring a friend and join us for a fun and tasty food adventure!

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
