Manitoba regional cuisine marries nature’s bounty with local cultural flair. Here are our top five choices for tasty locally sourced eats in Winnipeg and nearby.

1. Country-loving creatures can relax in the great outdoors and dine al fresco on the deck of beautiful Pineridge Hollow. Flaky fillets of panko-breaded Manitoba pickerel are accented by the customary tang of tartar sauce and the option of earthy sweet potato fries. 67-086 Heatherdale Rd, Birds Hill Provincial Park, 20 km northeast of Winnipeg, 204-777‑3880.

2. Tuck into one of Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company‘s Saskatoon berry pies (pictured) for a true taste of Manitoba summer. Crumbly golden pastry cradles purple berry filling with sweet, wild flavour. 1 Forks Market Rd, 204-957-5097.

3. Fude’s savoury toadstool puffs are pretty parcels of puff pastry filled with an earthy medley of Manitoba button mushrooms, caramelized onions and local goat cheddar served with berry cream. 303-99 Osborne St, 204-284‑3833.

4. For a nutty coniferous offering seek out Deadfish Cafe and Lounge for its peppery arugula salad loaded with toasted pine nuts, a honey-laced herbaceous dressing and pungent curls of Grana Padano cheese. 1-167 Osborne St, 204-477-6609.

5. Stuffed inside mushroom caps, topped with Parmesan and swimming in a lake of garlic butter and white wine, Resto Gare & Train Bar‘s escargot raises snails to refined heights. Served with garlic bread to sop up the last drops of sauce. 630 Des Meurons St, 204-837-3624.
