Manitoba Culinary Institute
My book Prairie Feast and I had an engagement this past week at the Manitoba Culinary Institute in Brandon (as part of the Winnipeg ThinAir Literary Festival). What a lovely place!
The students cooked a delicious local lunch featuring preserves and chutneys they made with produce from the gardens at the former mental health hospital. We ate in the dining room of the nurses' residence, a beautiful heritage building that houses the culinary school. A feast for the eyes...
"Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens" celebrates the colourful people and recipes that populated our province. It follows my first book "Prairie Feast: A Writer's Journey Home for Dinner." Saskatchewan tastes great -- I wrote the book on it!!
