Flavourful Saskatoon, December 28, 2015

New Year’s Eve at Prairie Harvest 
There are vegetarian/vegan options on the menu for New Year’s Eve at Prairie Harvest Café.

Beer in Lethbridge
There’s a micro brewery in Lethbridge again after a 25-year absence. Theoretically Brewing prides itself on being green-friendly. Some of the spent malt will be going to help power a farm and they hope to integrate solar electricity into their system in a few years time.

Craft Beer Trends 
Jason Foster, in Edmonton’s VueWeekly, takes a look at upcoming craft beer trends:
1. Beers with hop flavour and aroma without the bitterness;
2. A resurgence of malty beers;
3. Barrel-aged beer that isn’t overpowering; and
4. More saison beers.

Slow Food Chefs’ Alliance 
The Slow Food Chef’s Alliance in Canada launched this month and includes chefs from Montreal and Vancouver Island. Slow Food Chefs are committed to sourcing local, sustainable, seasonal food all year round and will be emphasizing food biodiversity and wild foods. The Canadian group is part of an international network involving 500 people in 5 countries.
