More Space at Il Secondo 
Christie’s Il Secondo Bakery just off Broadway has expanded – lots of space and lots of light. If you’re planning a curry dinner, you might want to pick up some of their wood-fire oven naan bread.

New Brunch Menu at Nosh 
Nosh Eatery & Tap has a new brunch menu with everything from Wild Rice Croquettes and South Asian Benny to Chocolate Chia Bowl and Orange Almond & Ricotta Pancakes. For the anti-brunch crowd, there’s a Samosa Sandwich and Roasted Beet Dip.

Lemon Raspberry Ice Cream
Fans of raspberry lemonade are sure to enjoy Prairie Sun Orchard’s new summer ice cream flavour – Lemon Raspberry. Yet one more reason to head over to the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market.

Locally Inspired Mexican Cuisine 
Mariana Brito, head chef of the Backyard Project, is serving pop-up meals inspired by local ingredients and her Mexican heritage. She’s interested in finding a permanent location for her restaurant.

Bannock’s Contentious Place in Aboriginal Cuisine 
“Though it’s typically considered a ‘traditional’ Aboriginal food, and sometimes even the Aboriginal food, bannock was first made elsewhere. The story goes something like this: originally a Scottish bread, brought here in the bellies of ships carrying fur traders and early settlers during the late eighteenth century, bannock—bannach in Scots Gaelic—was adopted and adapted by Indigenous nations across the country.” 

The article goes on to discuss varying points of view from one Winnipeg-based Oji-Cree artist who has sworn off bannock and only eats food that are indigenous to North America (e.g. squash, wild rice, bison) to others who feel that bannock matters because it’s a part of family and tradition.

Flavourful Saskatoon is a weekly Monday feature. I also post articles about food that is good, clean and fair; travel; and books.
