Flavourful Saskatoon, October 5, 2015

Restaurants for Change, Oct. 21
On Oct. 21, more than 50 restaurants in 13 Canadian cities will donate all or part of the proceeds from dinner service to Community Food Centres Canada of which the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre is a member.

In Saskatoon, Riversdale Delicatessen and Wankuskewin Heritage Park Restaurant are participating in Restaurants for Change.

Order a Selection of BC Wines 
Saskatoon’s liquor stores have a limited collection of BC wines. You can now order a shipment of wine from 30 different craft BC wineries through New District, BC’s only online craft wine marketplace. There’s a good assortment of wineries, a fair bit of background information, and the purchasing process looks straightforward.

The Beginner’s Asian Pantry 
The authors of 101 Easy Asian Recipes provide a guide to what you should look for when stocking your pantry with Asian ingredients.

Guide to Organic Coffee 
“Higher-end coffee tends to be slathered with slogans, logos, and banners claiming all sorts of things about the conditions of the farm and the relationship between the farmer and seller. Sometimes there will be photos of happy coffee farmers, or long narratives about how much the CEO of your local coffee roaster cares about his Honduran farms. Proceed with caution.”

Here are some tips for getting an accurate reading of the labels.

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).
