Terra Madre Day in Saskatchewan

John and I celebrated international Terra Madre Day at the New Ground Cafe in Birch Hills, near Prince Albert. Now that I think of it, every day is a Terra Madre Day at the New Ground Cafe, where Jenni fills her chalkboard menu with the local bounty.

Two years ago, Jenni attended the Terra Madre symposium in Turin, Italy. This symposium is held by the Slow Food organization to celebrate and encourage the preservation of local food traditions all over the world. She's an excellent ambassador for Saskatchewan.

Here's her Terra Madre lunch. It was all good but I'm still dreaming of that fabulous soup!

Jenni's got some delicious events planned this month:  
Thursday Supper Dec.16th: A Vegetarian Celebration!!!! My favourite type of cooking and a wonderful gift for the vegetarian on your list. Starts at 6 p.m..

Saturday, December 18th: 10 a.m to 1 p.m. Egg Nog Red River French Toast, Carrot Rhubarb Muffins, Santa's Rocket Fuel Chili and Bannock. NEW GROUND CAFE' SECOND ANNUAL MINI COOKBOOK will be finished and available for sale. Reserve your copy ahead of time as I think I'll only have time to make 50. Also available...NGC Bannock Mix, Naughty Biscotti with Wild Hazelnuts and Dark Chocolate in a mug with Cocoa Camino Fair Trade Hot Chocolate Packets and gift certificates in any amount.

Thursday Supper, December 23: TBA

Friday, December 24th: Our annual Christmas Eve brunch!!!! Served from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.. A combination of all the favourites from our December brunches, with some surprises. Reservations required as this is a popular event. Only one rule, you have to be jolly!
