Flavourful Saskatoon, December 8, 2014

Paddock Wood is 10 Years Old! 
Congratulations to Steve Cavan and Paddock Wood Brewing on their 10th anniversary. They’re offering Growler Specials from Dec. 8-12.

Read my profile for a look at the company’s evolution.

Boxcar Café 
The Boxcar Café at Station 20 West is re-launching January 5 with Chef Jenni (@newgroundcafe) as Executive Chef. I wish them every success.

The Night Oven Bakery 
It’s that wonderful time of year when the bakeries are full of seasonal goodies. The Night Oven Bakery is offering panettone and stollen made from organic flour, citrus, sugar and nuts with natural yeast. Pre-order and pre-pay to pick up on Saturdays, Dec. 13, 20 and 24.

Riversdale Deli 
The new vegetarian sandwich at Riversdale Deli sounds intriguing – sweet ‘n spicy melon puree, sherry vinegar roasted carrots, and toasted fennel polenta. If you sample it, please report back as I’m very curious.

Cappana Pizzeria is now on Facebook and Twitter (@yxepizza). They’ll be opening soon.

English Flavours
I leave for 7 weeks in England on Wednesday. I’ve arranged housesitting gigs through Trusted Housesitters in Norwich and Winchcombe. From a brick rowhouse in a cathedral town to a picturesque Anglo Saxon village in the Cotswolds – it should be fun! I promise to report regularly on pub lunches, bakeries and gargoyles.

Colman’s Mustard got its start in Norwich in 1815. 60% of the seeds are still locally sourced. Check out their ads.

Christopher Merret (1614-1695) was born and raised in Winchcombe. An English physician and scientist, he was the first to document the deliberate addition of sugar for the production of sparkling wine – 20 years before Dom Perignon, a Benedictine monk, introduced champagne.

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