Caribou is one of the staple ingredients in Nunavut cooking. It's classified as country food; or food from the land, and it's one of the only truly wild meats. Caribou is sometimes available at specialty meat shops across Canada or by special order directly from purveyors in Nunavut. Availability can vary from season to season, so if you can't find caribou, then elk, venison or beef can make a delicious substitute. Serve with Bannock.
