The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen (Sean Sherman)Sean Sherman and Beth Dooley will be at Common Good Books on Saturday, December 16 at 10:00 a.m. for a signing of their new book, The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen.


Sean Sherman, the Oglala Lakota chef and founder of The Sioux Chef, dispels outdated notions of Native American fare; no fry bread, dairy products, or sugar here. The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen features healthful plates that embrace venison, duck, blueberries, sage, amaranth, and abundant wildflowers. This volume is a delectable introduction to the modern indigenous cuisine of the Dakota and Minnesota territories.


"The Sioux Chef provides food for thought as well as for the body. The recipes will teach cooks everywhere how to pay attention to the world around them for sources of ingredients and how to prepare those ingredients. The personal stories—the wisdom they share—will teach all readers about sustainable living—the interdependence of beings, living with the earth instead of on the earth." —Indian Country Today


"This is the heritage that chef Sean Sherman is reviving through a language we all understand—food. With a cookbook, Sherman is challenging our definition of 'local' food by bringing indigenous cooking back to Minnesota." —Minnesota Monthly
