Flavourful Saskatoon, April 8, 2013

Sundays at Two Gun Quiche 
Starting April 21, Two Gun Quiche House will be open Sundays from 10 am to 3 pm, offering their regular menu as well as a special Sunday feature.

Collectively Green Sale, Apr. 27
Don’t miss the Collectively Green Sale & Celebration from 10 am – 5 pm, April 27, at Grace-Westminster United Church. All the products will be planet friendly – organic, natural, reclaimed, recycled, upcycled, or used; along with musicians and food.

Herschel Hills Cheese
I am completely infatuated with Herschel Hills Artisan Cheese House’s products. My refrigerator is currently well stocked with Gouda, Gruyere, Feta Marinated in Olive Oil and Rosemary, and a lovely creamy cheese reminiscent of Humboldt Fog.

Do visit their stand at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Cheese. This is locally-made cheese with European flair.

School Lunches
18,000 pounds of elementary school lunch garbage are sent to the landfill every year – that’s shocking! The Grade 8 Experiential program at Dr. J. G. Egnatoff School plans to lead by example. Two or three times a year, they will plan, cook and serve a hot, nutritious lunch on reusable dinnerware.

They’ll be working with students from the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition to prepare healthy meals in line with Sask Education’s Nourishing Minds nutrition policy.

Fraser Valley Food Tour 
It’s still snowing, and I’m still dreaming of moving to BC. And within 40 minutes of Vancouver you can find wineries, a hazelnut orchard, a cheesemaker, a potter, and a restaurant serving food from within 50 miles. I’m definitely ready for this Fraser Valley Food Tour.

There is so much history and culture attached to even a single spice, such as paprika. It’s well worth reading this detailed article about Hungarian paprika.

“In the Hungarian kitchen, color, flavor, and aroma are equally important. A good paprika, the kind that makes Hungarians proud, is complex, intense, and fresh, sometimes with hints of tomato, sometimes with a subtle nuttiness. Some paprikas are more sweet and vegetal, others more earthy. The color should be bright, and there should be no bitterness.” 

Flavourful Saskatoon is a weekly Monday feature. I also post regular profiles of culinary entrepreneurs, new restaurants and new food products.

Where are you getting your flower pictures? I certainly haven't seen anything like that among the piles of snow yet this year!

I was in Vancouver in March, so these are BC blossoms. I'm determined to think positive spring thoughts, so I'll have more flower photos in Monday's Flavourful Saskatoon - tropical Baja blooms.
