More than a Market

Danis’s Market Content Block 2

Donat had a central role in feeding the neighborhood, where meat was a mainstay of traditional French Canadian meals. He cleaned the meat from pig’s heads for head cheese, a jellied cold cut; made boudin, or blood sausage; and ground the meat for tourtieres, a meat pie, and the ever popular hamburger. During hunting season, he dressed the venison for customers. In winter, his wife Beatrice made tourtieres to sell in the store.
