Flavourful Saskatoon, December 23, 2013

New Year’s Eve 
Earth Bound Bakery and Christie’s Il Secondo are joining forces to serve a multi-course feast on New Year’s Eve. More details are available at either bakery.

Craft Beer & Tapas, Jan. 23 
Prairie Sun Brewery, Wild Cuisine Catering and Garlic Guru are hosting a Craft Beer & Tapas Night on January 23 at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market. Six food courses will be paired with three of Prairie Sun’s beers.

Two Stinkers Cheese
Entrepreneurial spirit is strong in the Campbell family. Craig Campbell developed Choo-It cereal, now available in three different formats. His son Jade, who is only 6 years old, has created his own product and was marketing it just last week at SaskMade Marketplace.

Jade has developed a spicy dry rub mix that he uses to prepare a hickory-smoked cheese. Ken Neuman, who manages SaskMade, says that Jade has been well trained by his dad. He shakes hands with his customers and writes out his own receipts.

Night Oven Bakery
Amy Jo Ehman visited Bryn Rawlyk at his soon-to-open bakery and took photographs of the wood oven, which Bryn has been building from scratch. Night Oven Bakery is due to open in January at 629b 1st Avenue North in City Park.

Hummus Appetizer
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to taste Garlic Guru’s hummus. Garlic Guru now sells five different kinds of hummus –roasted red pepper, roma tomato, lime and chili, smokey garbanzo, and extreme garlic & onion. Teresa had made a delicious appetizer, which I’ll be trying out this Christmas.

Take a Tostito scoop, add a little Lime and Chili Hummus, a spoonful of scrambled egg, a little grated parmesan and a pinch of taco seasoning. 

Merry Christmas
With best wishes to you all for a happy Christmas and a joyful New Year.
