It’s that time of year again when the Lake of the Woods Museum partners with our community members to offer a tasty  and adventurous 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. Sessions fill up quickly, so register early!

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

  • February 2 – Marta Queen – Mexican CANCELLED

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.
