Flavourful Saskatoon, October 31, 2011

Foodie news and events in and around Saskatoon – home brew, bird feeders, vegan soups, simply sinful haskap and puddle jumper

Winefest, November 9
Winefest on Wednesday, November 9, from 7:30 to 10:30 pm is a great opportunity to enjoy European wines while listening to great music played by Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra musicians. Tickets are available from Cava Wines & Spirits or by emailing

Paddock Wood Brewing
November 8  The Beer Club is meeting at 7:30 pm on November 8 at the Paddock Wood Brewery to discuss the art of brewing lagers.

November 12  Join the Headhunters home brewing club at Paddock Wood on November 12 from 9 am to 4 pm and spend the day learning how to brew your own beer. Club members will bring their own gear and brew up different styles of beer. Everyone is welcome. For more information, contact Justin at

Saskatoon Farmers’ Market
Pat Halter of Mistik Acres has been hard at work making barn board bird boxes and bird feeders. They look great.

The Sunday markets will continue until December 18 with handmade crafts joining the regular vendors.

Vegan Soups at Caffe Sola
Starting in November, Caffe Sola will be serving vegan soups – every day, all day. Nice.

Prairie Harvest Café
I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that there are delays and Prairie Harvest Café won’t be opening until January. The good news is that Mike McKeown is now available to cater your Christmas parties. Give him a call at 242-2928.

Pick up one of Prairie Harvest’s carry bags the next time you’re at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market.

Living Sky Winery
Coming soon – Puddle Jumper, a hard rhubarb cider from Living Sky Winery.

Souleio Spirits
Did you know that Souleio sells house-blended liqueurs made with Saskatchewan summer fruits? You can purchase Carmincello, Simply Sinful Haskap, Saskatoon Berry and Crème de Cassis.

Flavourful Saskatoon is a weekly Monday feature. Email me ( if you have products, events or places that you would like me to include.
