Andrew Zimmern’s Family Meals

Slide 3 of 12

Qualla Boundary Reservation; Cherokee, NC

“Here’s a traditional meal at Qualla Boundary Reservation in Cherokee, NC. The menu was inspired by a Cherokee feast held in 1851—fascinating stuff. We ate trout flavored with sumac, and sochan (a wild spring green closely related to Black-eyed Susans), bear meat, venison stew and Chestnut bread. In the picture, the family is holding hands while reciting a Cherokee blessing. I love this part of the country. It’s simply stunning.”
