"This book is a glorious celebration of Native American cuisine filled with pride and love."
--Nik Sharma, author of The Flavor Equation
"Thanks to Chef Freddie Bitsoie and this artful, inspiring book, it is easy to see how we can incorporate Indigenous foods into our kitchens and how the simple act of cooking can also be a celebration of Indigenous people, their rich cultural traditions, and connection to the land that has inspired so many delicious recipes."
--Robert Redford
"Freddie Bitsoie has taken Native American cuisine to a new level."--Dan Namingha, Tewa/Hopi, artist
"Freddie Bitsoie is one of our continent's very best chefs and storytellers. This is required reading for anyone who really cares about cooking."
--Rachel Wharton, James Beard Award-winning journalist and author of American Food
"I am fascinated with Freddie's knowledge of Indigenous foods. He always brings love and understanding to the experience of ancestral food culture. Meegwetch (thank you)."
--Adam Beach, Anishinaabe, actor
"I have always used food as my entry point to learning more about cultures both outside of and within my own--and in New Native Kitchen, Freddie Bitsoie is an exceptional guide, showing off the vibrant, regional native cooking of what is now the United States, giving context to the people who created it while showing off the beautiful ingredients of a truly exciting and diverse cuisine."
--Noah Galuten, chef and author of forthcoming The Don't Panic Pantry Cookbook
"I love this book, which is both a practical, modern cookbook filled with recipes that center on the local and the seasonal, and a generous, sweeping testament to the scope, ingenuity, and enduring importance of Indigenous culinary traditions throughout the Americas."
--Lukas Volger, author of Start Simple
"To seek and understand Indigenous foods is to dwell in the lands of our ancestors, to taste the earth and all that grows, from roots to leaf, from field and stream, to even the birds of the sky. Freddie not only has been immersed in this knowledge but has been a true, joyous steward of Native culture through food. This is going to be a staple in my house and will be a great gift for friends, family, and colleagues! I love Freddie!"
--Irene Bedard, Iñupiat, Yupik, Métis-Cree, actor, activist, storyteller
