Fall Reading List
Food Tank has put together a fall reading list. I’m eager to read A Taste of Generation Yum: How a Generation’s Love for Organic Fare, Celebrity Chefs and Microbrews Will Make or Break the Future of Food and The New Bread Basket: How the New Crop of Grain Growers, Plant Breeders, Millers, Maltsters, Bakers, Brewers, and Local Food Activists Are Redefining Our Daily Loaf (available from the Saskatoon Public Library).

Fall Menu at Nosh Eatery 
We tried out Nosh Eatery’s new fall menu this past week. The vegetarian charcuterie plate was a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach – the smoked mushrooms are especially good.

The desserts were tasty and the chocolate and spice layered zucchini cake with mint cream cheese frosting was a visual delight, but my favourite was the pumpkin chocolate cheesecake.

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