If you're hooked on Dancing with the Stars (and even if you're not) you'll enjoy the new hit TV series -- Dining with the Stars.
These 13 episodes were recorded in restaurants around Saskatchewan and feature local chefs cooking with local produce. Each dinner includes a local celebrity and some of the farmers who provided the food. (Also celebrities in my books!)
The series was created by the Saskatchewan Organic Directorate -- Food Miles Campaign. It's showing on Access Cable in Regina (Sundays at 7:30 pm) and Shaw Cable in Saskatoon (Wednesday and Friday at 5:30 pm.) Here are the episodes for each week:

"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!!
