Foodie news and events in and around Saskatoon
I’ll share more information in a future blog post. For now, Jackson and Curtis just want you to know that “It’s good in the ‘Hood.” So be sure to drop by and say hi to the folks at Collective Coffee.
The Saskatchewan Tourism Education Council is offering wine education classes. Participants in the Old and New World Blends class on Saturday, March 5 from 1:30-3:30 pm will taste and compare blended wines from Europe and North America. You can register online at http://www.steconlinelearning.com/.
Restaurants serving local, organic food
The Saskatchewan Organic Directorate provides a list by postal code of restaurants serving local and/or organic food.
Grandmothers 4 Grandmothers
Grandmothers 4 Grandmothers is holding a fundraising dinner in honour of International Women’s Day on Friday, March 4 at the Western Development Museum (reception at 5 pm, dinner at 6:30). The tickets cost $35 and must be purchased by February 25. For tickets, call Lily Krause (652-8209) or Julia Davies (374-4357).
Frustrating food trivia
Pumpkin seeds are a great source of protein, iron and zinc and have many possible health benefits. Unfortunately, the only pumpkin seeds that are available in Saskatoon are grown in China (Steep Hill Co-op has tried but been unable to buy more locally).
I’d be very interested to hear from farmers as to whether we could grow pumpkins for seeds on the Prairies.
