Oat bannock

Bannock is a crumbly flat bread similar to scones (or the American biscuits) typical of Scotland. Native Americans make a similar flat bread which is now also called bannock.

All the winter treats

Hanukkah, Yule, Christmas, New Year’s, the Lunar New Year, Valentine’s, and carnival/Mardi gras/Shrove Tuesday all fall between December and March (and probably a few more that I’m either forgetting or I haven’t even heard about). No matter where you’re from, what religion you are or what your cultural background is; there is a celebration (or a few) that you will take part in during the winter months. And they all involve food, because what better way is there to celebrate and spend special times with other than by sharing food?
