Flavourful Saskatoon, July 6, 2015

Spring Creek Garden, Saskatoon Farmers' Market

Temperance Brewing Co-operative, July 29 
Temperance Brewing Co. is hosting a meet-up at Amigo’s Cantina at 7 pm, July 29. Non-members are encouraged to attend: “The more we work together to grow the co-op, the closer we get to reaching our goals of brewing beer, opening a brewpub, and building a home for Saskatchewan's growing community of beer lovers.” 

Wolf Willow Winery
Wolf Willow Winery in Outlook produces cherry and haskap wine from Saskatchewan-grown fruit. They’re serving wine and refreshments (e.g. pie, quiche) on the patio from 12 – 8 pm, every day in July and August.

Banff Tea Co.
I’m enjoying two refreshing, summery teas from Banff Tea Company. Both would make great iced tea. Sansangria is a fruit tea with dried apple, carrot, grapes, pineapple, hibiscus, beetroot, orange peel, lemongrass and natural flavouring. Pink Grapefruit is a white tea flavoured with rosebuds, orange peel and natural flavouring.

Cidercraft is a biannual magazine about the people, places and apples in the current craft cider movement. It’s well designed with a range of interesting articles. The current issue includes a profile of Aspall’s Cider in Suffolk, England, a review of the different types of yeast that producers are using, and marketing trends.

Who is drinking cider? They’re 50% men, 50% women; college-educated; craft and import beer drinkers; and 80% are under 40.

Nutritional Medicine Course 
Very few doctors study nutrition in medical school. Two Chicago doctors are trying to remedy the situation with a four-week culinary nutrition class for medical students, which combines information on treating diet-related disease followed by a healthy dose of hands-on cooking.

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