Read Saskatoon Dinner

Scenario: Read 'n' Feed charity auction for literacy in Saskatoon. Auction item: An all-Saskatchewan dinner at my house. Bonus: Wines supplied by Dr. Booze, local wine columnist (aka James Romanow). The result:

Appetizers
Seared Flat Iron Carpaccio (recipe)
Chickpea Chilli Fruit Salad (recipe)
Tomato Tarts with Mustard Creme Fraiche

Palate Cleanser
Sea Buckthorn Gelato (source)

Main Course
Lake Diefenbaker Trout baked in salt (recipe)
Wild Rice and Dried Cherry Salad (recipe)
Grilled baby zucchini


Dessert
Raspberry Mille Feuille (recipe)

Verdict: I cooked all day in the summer heat, but it was worth it! Thank you Gen and Glen, Dave and Judy, for supporting Read Saskatoon and coming for dinner.
