#TasteAB Mission Inspiration: Pair local ingredients to make the perfect taco
Dani Braun is part of the trio behind Tres Carnales Taquería, a nationally acclaimed restaurant in Edmonton, and a man who knows and appreciates a fine taco. To make the perfect taco, Dani says it takes three things: a proper corn tortilla, a good, locally sourced protein or vegetable, and "a simple yet slightly complex salsa that will elevate the flavour of the taco." A favourite taco of Dani's is pork and pineapple in a taco al pastor, where the marinated pork is cooked slowly on a vertical rotisserie with a pineapple on top of the spit. "The pineapple gives the pork an extra delicious taste." Dani says Tres Carnales uses local protein in its tacos, including chicken from Four Whistle Farm near Millet.
