Foodie news and events in and around Saskatoon – a carrotmob, lettuce, seeds and scotch
Mob with a Cause – Moka Coffee Bar
Carrotmob presents Save the Planet . . . Have a Coffee. Join your local “mob with a cause” on Saturday, March 12 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm as we swarm Moka Coffee Bar at 411-E Herold Court in Saskatoon. 20% of Moka’s daily revenue will go towards environmentally friendly upgrades. (via DE – thanks!)
Local Lettuce and Cucumbers
I was thrilled to be able to purchase local lettuce and cucumbers from Grandora Gardens at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market on Saturday. It may be bitterly cold, but spring is obviously just around the corner. Grandora Gardens also sells a wide variety of hot chile peppers.
Souleio will be holding a Scotch tasting with wine educator Drayton Eldon Thomson on Saturday, March 19. The tasting will be accompanied by a selection of amuse bouches – from salad to dessert. Tickets are $50 if purchased before March 15. After that date, the cost will be $60.00 for Wine Mates members and $65 for non-members.
Seedy Saturday, a seed exchange and eco-fair, will be held at E.D. Feehan High School (411 Avenue M North) on Saturday, March 12 from 11 am to 4 pm. There will be workshops on CETA: a deal to trade away food sovereignty (11:45), Soils (12:45), Urban Agriculture (1:45) and Seed Starting 101 (2:45). More information is available on CHEP’s website.
I discovered Flavour Country, a local foodie blog, this week. Reviews of Museo and Collective Coffee are sure signs of a coffee aficionado. He also reviews Saba’s African Cuisine, a restaurant I’ve been intending to visit for ages.
Flavourful Saskatoon is a weekly Monday feature.
