Vínarterta  We thank the Icelandic community for this delicious treat. We are especially grateful to Carri and Signi, and their Amma (grandma) for the careful and gentle teaching of their time-honoured method. Available with or without icing.

The Tall Grass Fruit Cake  Fruit and nut laden – we follow all the best traditions with this recipe. The fruit is aged in rum or brandy and fresh cider before being carefully baked. And yes, we do wrap it in cheesecloth. Enjoy!

Christopomo Bread  An ancient bread from the Greek Orthodox heritage, rich in butter, eggs, honey, and anise, decorated with almonds.

Tall Grass Fruit Bread  When you add fruit to a lovely light bread dough there is a sweet simple harmony that blesses the senses.

Special Cookies

  • Mocha Kisses: A delightful blend of butter, chocolate, coffee, and sugar. Share them!

  • Russian Tea Biscuits: This royal shortbread creation is made with butter and crushed pecans.

  • Hazelnut Chocolate Dream: Indulge yourself and your guests in this rich, buttery hazelnut cookie dipped in chocolate.

  • Florentines: It’s wonderful what you can make with chocolate, candied orange peel, and almonds!

King’s Cake (Galette des rois)  A French tradition of the Middle Ages, a ‘treasure’ is baked into this cake. The finder is crowned King/Queen for the day. Made to celebrate Epiphany, starting January 6th and available until the end of the month.

Cranberry Relish  A great accompaniment for turkey dishes and a tasty alternative to cranberry sauce. Complete your holiday table with this zesty delight.

Complete Traditional Turkey Feast  The meal we look forward to all year, adapted for one or two diners. Roast turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and carrots for you to heat up at home.

Tourtičre  Our rendition of this classic French Canadian dish combines prairie fed bison from Swan Lake First Nation and heritage bred free range pork. Pairs deliciously with our house-made wild cranberry sauce.

Plum Pudding with Sauce  This dessert reminds us of Christmases past. Serve with our rich sauce to complete your feast. Traditionally, during the making of the pudding, a wish was stirred into the mixture by each family member.

Mincemeat  A nod to English festive culture, this delectable vegetarian mixture of chopped nuts, dried fruit, distilled spirits, and spices is sold in gift-worthy jars. Also available by special order – baked into tarts, or in larger containers.

The best of Baba’s  Eastern European favourites to take home. Goodness! It’s oven-ready.

  • Relaxed cabbage casserole: with red lentils (vegan) or brown rice, bacon, and bison

  • Perogies: potato-cheddar or cottage cheese

Sunflower Oil  Our very own fresh cold-pressed Manitoba grown 100% organic Sunflower Oil is available in bottles to use in your own cooking, or to give as gifts.

If you can't, we can!

Greens for the season still available

Local natural salad greens available in the cooler section of Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company and Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen. We offer a super selection of different leafy green edibles, great for stuffing into a sandwich or as part of a wonderful salad. Available at both the Tall Grass bakeries, from now until the fall.
