Night Oven Bakery
Night Oven Bakery makes awesome bread. I also really, really like their veggie sausage rolls with house-made seitan.

Our Reps. at Terra Madre 
I’ve been excitedly following Nicole and Kristy from Daybreak Mill as they post photographs from Terra Madre where they are representing Slow Food Saskatoon. Here’s their photo of Slow Food Canada’s booth.

Urban Agriculture 
Los Angeles City Council is promoting urban agriculture by offering tax breaks to property owners who lease their vacant lots for urban farms. What a great way to encourage property owners to turn their vacant lots into productive farms rather than parking lots.

Biddy’s Tea Room 
I’m going to be dogsitting in Norwich, England, over Christmas so I’ve started looking at all the places I may be able to visit. Biddy’s Tea Room looks like a great place to have afternoon tea, but I’m also fascinated by the way they’ve extended their offerings with evening programming.

Once a month they have a Bake-Off. Aspiring bakers bring in their cakes: winning entries may have their recipe included in the bakery’s cookbook, and everyone can enjoy eating cake.

They also host a Swishing (clothing exchange) once a month.

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).
