With the feasting and festivities over, New Year resolutions are invariably made, including a few over here too.
For 2011, Savour Winnipeg will endeavor to produce monthly content that revolves around seasonal themes. In January for instance, we’re leading up to Robert Burns Day (January 25) by featuring some of the best of British food available right here in Winnipeg. We’ll run a feature on scotch, review Winnipeg’s latest Gastropub – the Grove – and share some stick to your ribs recipes.
New for 2011, we’re also thrilled to welcome some guest contributors.
Alec Stuart has been in and out of the wine industry since 1996 and has spent the last ten years handling wine education for the Kenaston Wine Market. Throughout the year he’ll be highlighting a different selection of wines for your special occasions, highlighting something new or noteworthy or recommending the perfect pairing for seasonal ingredients. If you have a question for Alec or a suggestion for a future feature, drop us a line.
Chef Jon Royal, recently of La P’tite France, is the newest member of the talented team over at the University of Winnipeg’s Diversity Food Services. Long time readers may remember that Chef Royal won the Centrex Iron Chef competition for the Fairmont team back in 2009.
Chef Royal is offering a a rare opportunity for us home cooks, food fanatics, and dedicated diners to grill a professional chef. Whether it’s a technique, a local ingredient, or something you’ve always wanted to know about the life of a professional chef, send us your ideas and we’ll post the best questions and chef Royal’s answers.
