The winning pie... lemon meringue baked by students at St. Joe's. Yes, life is sweet when you're a pie judge. Actually, there was a tie for first place in the sweet pie category, but I gobbled down the apple pie before I got a picture of it.
After dessert, the main course. Chefs' "black box" challenge: good Saskatchewan foods such as lentils, mustard, pork, pasta and eggs.
Chef Peter Phillips, Boffins Club,

And the winning dish from Simon Reynolds - pasta with poached pork and vegetables in cream sauce with a salsa bean salad. Congrats chef. It was tremendously fun to eat with you this afternoon.
