A classic cuisine and family fare sparkling with flavours of local fruit (blue berries and saskatoon berries, e.g.), fish (walleye, etc), and game (rabbit, duck, elk, etc). My favourite example is the juniper flavoured chicken.

Seven of us enjoyed a celebratory dinner at Silver Birch last night. The meals were wonderful. There were raves for the bison burger, shore dinner, the pork chop with blueberry sauce, braised rabbit, walleye cakes, and the dessert. Amy provided exemplary service. Thanks for everything.
