The Boreal Herbal Book, Bev Gray
Bev Gray is a herbalist and registered aromatherapist living in Whitehorse, Yukon. She and her family opened Aroma Borealis Herb Shop in 1998. They manufacture and sell over 200 products incorporating wild plants from the sub arctic with organically grown herbs and essential oils.
Bev has just published The Boreal Herbal Book, a guide to identifying and using northern plants for food and medicine. It also includes dozens of recipes, such as Wild Weed Spanakopita, Dandelion Wine, and Cranberry-Mint Muffins.
Chef Kevin Tetz will be at McNally Robinson Booksellers on July 21 to cook up some northern eats from Bev Gray’s book, The Boreal Herbal: Wild Food and Medicine Plants of the North.
Recipes from the book will be featured in Prairie Ink Restaurant July 14 to 21.
Good Life Greenhouses
I am really enjoying the purple and black heirloom tomatoes from Good Life Greenhouses. They are juicy, sweet and so much more flavourful than beefsteak tomatoes.
Flavourful Saskatoon is a weekly Monday feature. Email me if you have products, events or places that you would like me to include.
