Flavourful Saskatoon, May 25, 2015





Thomas Haas, North Vancouver

Saturday Treats
Saturday is my family’s day for visiting the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market and Earth Bound Bakery and I look forward all week to the treats that will be in store for me. Here are this week’s hits:

Baklava – Ef Zeen Greek Cuisine
Salted Caramel Apple Rose – Wild Serendipity Foods
Savoury Croissant (kale, ricotta & walnuts), Apple-Brie Nightgown – Earth Bound Bakery

And, for those of you who are wondering, how or why you would eat a “nightgown,” here’s the answer. Douillons aux Pommes, aka Apples in Nightdresses/Nightgowns, is a culinary specialty from Normandy where they grow a lot of apples. Here’s a recipe.

Food Truck Rally, June 11
There will be a food truck rally to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation from 10 am to 2 pm, June 11, on the northeast side of 3rd Avenue and 22nd Street.


Lunch at City Perks
Lunch outdoors on a sunny spring day – what could be nicer! City Perks offers so many different lunch options. I really enjoyed my Roasted Vegetable & Goat Cheese Calzone, while Shelley had an Asparagus Quiche. The salad was great with Tortilla Strips and Black Beans for added flavour.


Vancouver Bakeries
I will be in Vancouver in August (yippee!) and am looking forward to visiting a few of Vancouver's best bakeries. I can already guarantee you’ll find delicious goodies at Terra Breads and Thomas Haas in Vancouver as well as Bell’s Bake Shop in Steveston.

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).

Have fun in Vancouver. I really like Beaucoup bakery in Fairview/Kits: http://www.beaucoupbakery.com/menu/ The Kouign Amann is excellent, but get there early because they sell out.

Thank you for the tip, Catherine. I'll try to make it to Beaucoup Bakery.
