CJ Katz: Savour Life
CJ publishes Savour Life, a weekly electronic newsletter about local living and eating. She is also the host of Wheatland Café, a weekly television cooking show (Wednesdays at 12:15 on CTV), and Savour Saskatchewan, a biweekly radio show talking to local food producers (every second Tuesday at 7:45 am on CBC Radio One with Sheila Coles).
Trial and Error
CJ doesn’t believe you need a degree to be a good cook, and her goal is to provide recipes that are quick, easy and accessible for people to cook at home.
CJ’s newest project is a cookbook to be published by Canadian Plains Research. “It will have a strong Prairie focus,” she says. “I’ll use recipes from Wheatland Café, short paragraphs about producers and photographs of dishes or producers.”
CJ is the Vice President of the Saskatchewan Triathlon Association Corporation. She has participated in one triathlon, but her primary role is as cheerleader and support for her sons. CJ says that triathlon started out as an adult sport but has progressed and now includes four and five year olds. “They think it’s hilarious and have so much fun,” she says.
“It’s all about healthy living and lifestyles,” she says. “It’s a good complement for what I’m doing.”
