Enjoy the holidays!

What’s your favourite holiday food - to share with family and friends this holiday season?

  • cinnamon buns for brunch
  • pickles, crackers and dip to take the edge off as guests visit before dinner
  • a steaming platter of perogies or cabbage rolls passed along the table, as the meal begins

Tall Grass, Grass Roots and Baba’s Pantry can help out at this busy time of year with baked goods and sweets, pickles, preserves and prepared meals to take home, as well as perogies and cabbage rolls.

At Tall Grass try our truly awesome vinaterta, brandied fruit cake, light fruit bread and buttery rich Christopomo bread. Seasonal cookies include Mocha Kisses, Russian Tea Biscuits, Hazelnut Chocolate Dreams and Florentines.

Grass Roots has great tourtiere, cranberry relish (a delightfully tart alternative to cranberry sauce), old fashioned plum pudding with sauce, vegetarian mincemeat, and for small celebrations of one or two people, a complete traditional turkey feast, as a take home meal.

Of course for all things Eastern European it’s Baba’s Pantry for traditional boiled kutia, aged Bothwell cheddar and potato, cottage cheese and fresh dill, as well as super yummy sauerkraut perogies. Cabbage rolls choices are brown rice with Manitoba bison, as well as buckwheat vegetarian. The beet borscht is brimming with veggies. The wild blueberry dessert perogies will remind you of Baba. Most items are available chilled and frozen. Also, call us for large pan orders.

Who has the time for traditional canning, the way Granny did it? We do!

At Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen we follow the time-honoured steps to bring you delicious local canning from the farm to the table. Come and watch us at Grass Roots in The Forks Market as we bring you this prairie custom. At Grass Roots, we are preserving more than food. We are preserving a heritage.

Try these delicious choices:
  • Apple and wild cranberry jam
  • Manitoba saskatoon jam
  • Apricot sunrise jam
  • Homestyle apple sauce
  • Rhubarb apple chutney
  • Salsas (mild, medium, or hot)
  • Homestyle dill pickles
  • Bread and butter pickles
  • Pickled beets
  • and much, much more! 

A selection of our canned items are also available at Tall Grass in Wolseley, 859 Westminster Avenue, 
and Tall Grass at The Forks Market, as well as Baba's Tall Grass Pantry.



Try Baba’s Steppe Sandwich

Nitrate-free and $4.25

Baba's Tall Grass Pantry Steppe Sandwich, named after the grasslands of Eastern Europe, with a nod to the Canadian prairies, is nitrate-free! In selecting a local sausage-maker, we insisted on avoiding the nitrates many of us are concerned about. A delicious combination of Manitoba pork and beef along with flavourful spices make these farmers' sausages special. Nestled on a fresh organic bun from Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company, you may want to garnish your Steppe Sandwich with caramelized onions, sauerkraut, ketchup and mustard, which are all house-made, plus a pickle from Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen.

Delicious on its own, you can also choose to make it a Steppe Meal, complete with potato wedges or buckwheat, and then choose from a salad, coleslaw, or a 6 oz. bowl of steaming hot borscht.

Yum!

Check out Baba’s Pantry chalkboard menu

Have you visited Baba's Tall Grass Pantry at The Forks Market lately? Check out our chalkboard menu. Every Manitoban is familiar with perogies, but have you ever tried Manitoba Meatballs or a Steppe Sandwich?

Our Manitoba Meatballs are created using grass-fed beef and pork from local farms. Your plate features five delicious meatballs in gravy, accompanied by potato wedges or buckwheat and your choice of salad, coleslaw or a 6 oz. bowl of borscht.

We also have a variety of side items available to round out your meal, or even enjoy on their own as a snack.

Does your mouth water at the mere thought of perogies and cabbage rolls? That desire can be satisfied at Baba’s Pantry! We feature plates of either in both vegetarian and meat varieties.

In addition to the hot meals at Baba’s Tall Grass Pantry at The Forks Market, we also offer pre-cooked and frozen perogies, as well as cabbage rolls. Or stop by Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company in Wolseley and pick up some frozen perogies, ready to prepare at home.

Baba’s Pantry may be reached by telephone at 204-947-5097.

Serving Ukrainian and Eastern European food from a prairie perspective, the inspiration for Baba’s Tall Grass Pantry comes from Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company - with its continuous passion and commitment to fresh, natural, local and organic ingredients.
