Flavourful Saskatoon, February 17, 2014

Salmon Confidential, Feb. 27
The Saskatchewan Eco Network is showing the film, Salmon Confidential, on February 27 at the Frances Morrison Library. The film documents one biologist’s struggle to overcome government and industry roadblocks in order to save BC’s wild salmon.

Growing Cities, Mar. 6
CHEP will be hosting a free screening of Growing Cities, a film about urban agriculture, on March 6 at The Broadway Theatre.

Kenderdine Gala, Mar. 7
The University of Saskatchewan Biology Club is organizing a Kenderdine Commemorative Gala on March 7 to assist students who were affected by the closure of Kenderdine Campus, Emma Lake.

Ken Neuman
I was saddened to learn that Ken Neuman is no longer employed by SaskMade Marketplace. He is so enthusiastic and supportive of local food producers and SaskMade Marketplace was transformed under his leadership.

Ken is looking for new opportunities in the food industry. Do give him a call if you have a possible opening.

Vegetarian Restaurant
Rumour has it that a mostly-vegetarian restaurant is planned for Weczeria’s old spot on Broadway. I’m so excited and will try to find out more details. (via @theotherHilary)

Stir-Fried Journey Through China
If you are interested in Chinese food and how it is prepared in China, I highly recommend reading Serve the People: A Stir-Fried Journey through China by Jen Lin-Liu. The American-born author goes from taking cooking classes to cooking at a noodle stand and at a high-end restaurant in Shanghai.

Creative, Healthy Recipes
If you’re looking for some fresh inspiration for healthy eating, check out My New Roots. Recipes range from Big Comfy Sweet Potato to Wild Mushroom Lentil Burgers with Cashew Garlic Sauce. I’d like to try the Veggie & Egg Tower of Power - I feel stronger just reading the title! (with thanks to Stephanie)

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

You can follow Wanderlust and Words on Facebook, Twitter, or by email (top right corner).
