It's difficult to find just one answer to the question, “What is Canadian cuisine?” Many times, it’s based on regional favourites. But when Oliver & Bonacini’s Bannock restaurant opened in 2011, chef Michael Bonacini and corporate executive chef Anthony Walsh came up with a compelling mix of Canadian comfort food.

“We try to do what’s in season and what’s fresh. What’s uniquely Canadian, whether it’s from the West Coast or East Coast and everywhere in between,” says Leanne Natale, general manager. “So we take those classic Canadian dishes and put our own spin on it. We make it really fun. We make it indulgent and make it taste really good.”

The name Bannock comes from the iconic flatbread brought to North America by Scottish explorers and adopted by Indigenous people. “Our version of bannock is in vein with the Scottish version,” Leanne explains. “We push the Canadian comfort food aspect of it. Our guests can grasp that. They understand chicken pot pie, they understand tortière and poutine. All of those things are very familiar and very comforting.”
