Yes, that’s right, Chef Michael Smith from PEI and Host for several Canada Food Network programs honored Saskatoon today at our local farmers’ market. Chef Michael spent the morning meeting market’s vendors, talking to customers, signing books, and most importantly, having photo shoots with patrons.
At 5’5″ and wearing heels, I asked Chef Michael if I should stand on my toes. I always knew he was tall, but now I’m nick-naming him the ‘Friendly Food Giant”. I’m sure he’s heard this before.

Chef Shelly preparing for food tasting at the Market Kitchen: Savory Lemon Fennel Salad, Bruschetta, Spinach Pinwheels, and Wild Boar Bacon and Black Lentil Burritos. Hope everyone got to taste some samples including Chef Michael.
Savory lemon fennel salad with raisins, perfect for summer.
Cherry tomatoes from Floating Gardens.
Bruschetta – these were sooo good; I was tempted to take a tray and pass them around.
Prep for Spinach Pinwheels with puff pastry.
These looked easy to make: basically all you need is spinach dip, grated cheese, and puff pastry.
Burritos filled with black lentils, wild boar bacon, cheese, and lettuce. Fun to eat and again, deliciously messy.
