Guess who came for lunch today? CBC Radio host Shelagh Rogers and three Saskatchewan authors: Allan Casey, Jo-Ann Episkenew and Dianne Warren. That's me on the right, beside Shelagh.
We were taping a one-hour episode of The Next Chapter focusing on award-winning writers from Saskatchewan. After our interviews, we all sat down to dinner: asparagus quiche (pictured), salad greens (including a few baby weeds) with fiddleheads, burbot fish cakes with Sue's Zucchini Relish tartar sauce, Saskatchewan chickpea hummus, bread from Christie's Bakery and rhubarb berry crisp for dessert with a choice of my homemade cherry gelato and maple ice cream.
The program airs June 27 and July 2 on CBC Radio One.
"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!!
