​We’re proud of our school and like to share our spirit.

School Spirit

Communities have connected through food for centuries. Whether it’s celebrating a special occasion, watching sports or just an excuse to get together, humans love to gather around the table. DMC would relish the opportunity to learn more about our community members and the food they use to connect with each other. If you would be willing to send us a recipe that you use to cook for friends or family and include a story, explanation of cultural significance or any other reason this dish is special for your family, we will be making a DMC cookbook.

Our hope is that we gather enough recipes to create our own DMC cookbook that we can print and sell as a fundraising activity. Our leadership students will collaborate to decide the charitable organization that should be the recipient of the funds.

Please know that any recipe is welcome from the hot wings you prepare for a Superbowl party to Mithai to celebrate Diwali.

If you would be willing to share please send Lise Twa an email with the recipe and description to alunich@cbe.ab.ca. You are welcome to send along any questions you may have.

Thank you for your support!

EXAMPLE:

 

Feagan Family Cornbread

 

1/2 Cup Butter

2/3 Cup Sugar

2 Eggs

1 cup Buttermilk

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup cornmeal

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch square pan.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. Quickly add eggs and beat until well blended. Combine buttermilk with baking soda and stir mixture into pan. Stir in cornmeal, flour, and salt until well blended and few lumps remain. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.

** When we make it sometimes we just melt our butter in the microwave and combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl. We have also used a 9.5 x 9.5 pan, and a round one, and they turn out awesome!

 

Why this Recipe? 

We wanted to share this recipe because it is something that reminds us of good times, full bellies, and full hearts. 

When our family moved here from the Northwest Territories we hadn't really had access to fresh dairy before, and the buttermilk in this recipe made it something special and delicious. It started out as something that we only had on rare occasions and as a way my Grandma showed her love through food (buttermilk was that big of a deal at the time haha), and now we make it any time we want to extend that same warm, loving feeling to friends and family. Pro-tip: Melt butter and honey on top before serving for extra deliciousness.
