Dining with the Stars

Our taste buds were dancing with the stars at Dine with the Stars - a wonderful initiative of the Saskatchewan Organic Directorate.

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.
