Flavourful Saskatoon, December 1, 2014

Only 9 days until I leave for 7 weeks in England!

Night Market, Dec. 4 
The Saskatoon Farmers’ Market will be bustling with activity on Dec. 4 from 4:30-8 pm. Chef Jenni will be cooking in the kitchen and Amy Jo Ehman will be selling copies of her new book, Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens.

Vikram Vij, Feb. 26 
Vikram Vij – chef, producer, and the newest dragon on The Dragon’s Den – will be the guest speaker at the Raj Manek Banquet on Feb. 26.

You can buy Vij’s curries at Dad’s Organic Market on 8th Street.

Vegetable Fermentation Seminar, Feb. 27
The Saskatchewan Food Centre will be offering a Fermentation of Vegetables Seminar on Feb. 27. It will cover spontaneous fermentation, accelerated lactic fermentation and commercial franchise.

Lots of treats available at Churchill's British Imports

Locally-Grown Mustard 
Marc Loiselle, Loiselle Organic Family Farm, is supplying ground yellow mustard seed to several Saskatoon customers, including Congress Beerhouse, Riversdale Delicatessen, and The Night Oven. Locally grown and locally made!

Marc says, “It's a chore milling it up as we do it in small batches now using our Nutribullet (the old Krups coffee mill burned out doing it earlier this week)”.

High Tech Cheese 
Cheese-making is a fascinating combination of technology and personal creativity. You never know what flavour Sharon McDaniel of Herschel Hills will come up with next (the Tele Gouda with Herbs is fabulous). However, like the majority of artisan cheesemakers in North America, she relies on technology to assist her.

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).
