Foodie news and events in and around Saskatoon – bakeries, coffee shops, espresso, fine dining, farmers, and cider
Il Secondo, Christie’s Bakery’s location just off Broadway, is now open until 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. And they have a liquor license, so you can enjoy pizza straight out of the wood oven along with your choice of Italian beer or wine (at least 2 red and 2 white).
What would Saturdays be like without a stuffed croissant from EarthBound Bakery? The croissant this week was exceptional – the filling was roasted pattypan squash with arugula-walnut-garlic pesto. Trent Loewen, the baker, uses as many local, organic products as he possibly can. All summer long, the vegetables are from his brother Paul’s farm.
Commercial Kitchen - Saskatoon Farmers’ Market
The Saskatoon Farmers’ Market has received a substantial sponsorship cheque from Agrium for the construction of a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen. The kitchen will host local cooking classes, workshops, catering events, and other food preparation. The Market hopes that the kitchen will be up and running by October.
Duck Duck Goose
Too early in the day for wine and tapas? Duck Duck Goose has an espresso machine and uses organic milk in all their coffee beverages.
