Flavourful Saskatoon, February 27, 2017

All the Sweet Things 
You can pre-order your copy of Renée Kohlman’s cookbook, All the Sweet Things, online. One hundred recipes for one hundred delicious treats.

Collective Coffee's New Location
Collective Coffee has a new location with a new menu but the same great coffee across from St. Paul’s Hospital at 210 Avenue P South (Monday to Friday, 7 am – 5 pm).

The Local Kitchen
March cooking classes at The Local Kitchen include vegetarian cooking in community with Slow Food Saskatoon, fusion mash-ups with Chef Tom Brownbridge, batch cooking with Caitlin Iles, and raw chocolate making with Those Girls at the Market.

Saskatoon’s Best Vegetarian 
Here’s a list of some of the best vegetarian dishes to enjoy in Saskatoon restaurants.

Cheese Anthology 
The Art of Eating offers an anthology of cheese, “a simple, practical guide for people who love cheese.” Find out about the mites that form aged Mimolette’s pitted surface, how Epoisse is washed first in water and then eau de vie, and the long, slightly twisting horns of the Rove goats whose milk is used for Brousse cheese.

Going Vegetarian for the Environment 
Germany’s coalition government isn’t altogether happy about the Environment Minister’s decision to ban meat and fish from official government functions in order to set a good example for climate protection, but what a great initiative!

Schools can also play a role in combatting climate change. Here are resources for institutional food service directors and advocates to help shift purchasing from meat to low-carbon plant-based foods.

Boom Bio
Organic farming is on the rise in Quebec for syrup, vegetables, and milk (article in French).

Fruit and Veg 
Scientists are now recommending we eat 10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day. Here are some ideas for ways to achieve that goal.

Flavourful Saskatoon is a weekly Monday feature. I also post articles about food that is good, clean and fair; travel; and books. You may also enjoy EcoFriendly Sask profiling Saskatchewan environmental initiatives and events. 

You can follow Wanderlust and Words on Facebook, Twitter, or by email (top right corner).
