SOD paired up top chefs with local celebrities and some of our best farmers to stage a series of dinners around the province focussing on organic Saskatchewan-grown foods.
I had the privilege of attending Dine with the Stars at Weczeria in Saskatoon, where Chef Dan Walker performed for a select group including star authors Yann Martel and his wife Alice Kuipers. The menu:
Golden Beet Soup
Pear and Apple Salad with Blue Cheese
Rye Gnocchi with Pastrami Cream
Northern Pike with Wild Rice and Blueberries
Crème Brulée with Sour Cherry Compote
Dine with the Stars dinners were recorded and will be broadcast at a later date. Watch here for details.
"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!!
