Flavourful Saskatoon, December 19, 2016

Carcassonne, France

Herb-a-licious, Jan. 19 
Learn how to create your own herb garden at The Glen at Crossmount on Jan. 19.

A Local Hero
It’s heart-warming to read about Laurie O’Connor, Executive Director, Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre. Three cheers for people like Laurie who reach out to help others and make our community a better place.

Ostentatious Orange
For a limited time only, Nvigorate (Saskatoon Farmers’ Market) is offering Seabuckthorn Gelato with a chocolate swirl.

We’re Fooling Ourselves 
There are some major psychological barriers to preventing food waste. For example, we don’t like an empty refrigerator or an empty shopping cart. And we may inspect prices carefully when shopping, but we’re nowhere near as price conscious when we’re cleaning out the refrigerator. “We so often say, ‘What do I want for dinner?’ as opposed to, ‘What do I have for dinner?’ . . . I think we need to reframe the way we think about what we have in our fridges and pantries.”

Festive European Food 
Whether it’s a foot-long speculoo cookie in Brussels or creamy rice pudding in Copenhagen, food is almost always a part of our Christmas celebrations.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas! 

Dijon, France
