Fresh local food from the province of Saskatchewan

Want to grow and stomp your own grapes? Learn the art of growing and breeding grapes for the prairies with Tyler Kaban, a passionate grape breeder at the University of Saskatchewan.
I recently paid a visit to Tyler and his grapes (since it was winter, in the greenhouse at the U of S). Those are his grapes in the picture. Tyler is looking for folks around the province willing to grow his grape varieties to see which ones do best in real prairie conditions.
The seminar is April 1. Information and agenda will be posted here as they become available.
"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!!
