Lexicon of Sustainability, June 5 
Join the Saskatoon Food Council at their monthly Urban Ag Movie Night at 7 pm, June 5, at Station 20 West for the Lexicon of Sustainability. The Lexicon of Sustainability combines “information art” photo collages and a series of short films to introduce a discussion on food sustainability and our evolving food culture.

Fresh Spring Greens 
What a treat to have fresh spinach and asparagus from the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market!

Chef’s Table
I’m enjoying Chef's Table, a six-part series of interviews with chefs, on Netflix. I believe that food’s primary purpose is to nourish and sustain us; however, I’m full of admiration for these chefs who are creating works of art. Each episode takes you inside their restaurant kitchen and introduces you to their family, their dreams and ambitions.

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