Canadian Prairie Bison

Chefs Table

Bison or Buffalo?:  It is now generally accepted that the preferred term is “bison” as opposed to “buffalo”. This isn’t just a linguistic preference; it is a more accurate description of the species. Furthermore, it prevents confusion in an international market: only bison come from North America.

Bison is every bit as flexible as beef when it comes to choice:

  • Tenderloin

  • T-Bone
