Flavourful Saskatoon, April 10, 2017

 

Croissants and Stroopwafels
You can now buy croissants and several kinds of focaccia at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market from Cathy Langdon, Proof . . . fresh baked creations. I tried Cathy’s spinach and cheese croissant and it was great – buttery layers filled with a generous, tasty serving of spinach and asiago cheese. Next week I plan to try her caramel and apple focaccia.

Another new vendor was selling stroopwafel – Dutch waffle cookies.

Karma at Night 
Karma Conscious Café and Eatery is launching its evening menu (Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 6-10 pm) from Apr. 20-22. The menu includes such unexpected items as a Roasted Cabbage Steak with Hemp Chimichurri and Samosa Flautas.
