Slow Food Saskatoon and the Saskatchewan Eco Network are showing the movie Edible City: Grow the Revolution at the Frances Morrison Public Library at 7 pm, November 21.

Business Opportunity 
Fresh n Local has suspended services while they restructure. Curtis is looking for a business partner with strong marketing, communication and accounting skills. The individual is being asked to provide sweat equity rather than a financial investment.

Food Bank Cooking Classes
The Saskatoon Food Bank is offering free family cooking classes on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from October to December. What a great idea to involve the whole family.

Want to create a Canadian job? Buy Beer
Beer accounts for 45% of all beverage alcohol sales in Canada and supports 163,200 jobs across the country. 85% of the beer consumed in Canada is produced here. In addition, small brewers are the innovators of the industry and are the ones attracting new customers.

Mastering the Art of French Eating
Was it Lyon’s washerwomen who invented the Salade Lyonnaise? What is the correct topping for a Breton buckwheat crepe? If you’re infatuated with France and food, be sure to read Mastering the Art of French Eating by Ann Mah and try out the recipes for cassoulet, choucroute, soupe pistou and more.

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