Food and my home town. What a great combination! I was honoured to be included at a special dinner at the Craik Eco-Centre on Sunday. Chef Moe Mathieu and his crew of culinary students created a fabulous, colourful, local, raw meal. That's right -- from golden beets to ground beef -- quite uncooked.
It was the final of 13 dinners organized by SOD (Saskatchewan Organic Directorate) to showcase the local and particularly organic bounty of Saskatchewan. The series called Dine with the Stars features chefs, farmers and Saskatchewan celebrities.
Now, the 13 dinners are being crafted into 13 video episodes, coming soon to a TV or computer screen near you. Check the SOD website for further 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!!
