We had an awesome time working with Drew Kozub, remote host of Breakfast Television and I have to give a huge shout out to Pay Chen who helped hook this up. Although at home viewers only saw four, two-minute segments and a couple of teasers, we spent from 5:30 am (ouch) to just gone 8:00 […]
Last month I partnered with a good friend and fellow foraging fan Barret Miller to launch Savour Winnipeg Experiences. Founder of Channel Canyon Consulting and an outdoor educator at FortWhyte Alive, we tested the proverbial waters with a Fantastic Forest Forage: an introduction to wild edibles and foraging techniques. We were joined by chefs eager […]
Savour Winnipeg reader Jim was wondering about this mushroom he found growing on a dead ash tree on his property. Mushroom identification is one of the most requested topics on the blog. With all this fuss about fungus, I thought the response might be helpful to others looking for info. First of all, thanks for […]

This month’s column is inspired by a regular reader, and soon to be betrothed, Row. He writes: “I am a relative newcomer to all things wine-related. I consider myself to be a beer-drinker, but […]
I’m fussy. Especially when it comes to fruits and veggies. Seldom do I find a pre-made option that suits my tastes, particularly when it comes to yogurt, and frozen yogurt. Believe it or not, frozen yogurt is easy enough to make at home and all it takes is three easy steps: 1: Pick your yogurt […]
It’s January 25. Robert Burns’ day. Scots (and those of Scottish heritage) the world over will celebrate the great poet’s birthday this week by holding a Burns Supper. It’s typically an affair of much pomp and circumstance and although Burns maintained it should be a celebration of internationalism and universal brotherhood, kilts and tartan all […]
Hot menus, a Food Network style cake competition, trendy chefs, and some of the most up-to-the-minute food to dress your plates? That’s what organizers are promising at One Sweet Affair, Winnipeg’s not to be missed fall foodie event.
The Winnipeg Leisure Guide had a number of wonderful foodie education opportunities in the spring/summer edition, among them, Fungus Among Us. Held at the Assiniboine Park Conservatory, it was led by D. Kurt, a self professed mushroom mad man and kind of a fun guy (get it…fun gi) at that. The evening provided a crash […]
Talk about wood-fired Pizzeria Gusto’s state of the art wood-fired oven remained cold for more than a week, following the firing of head chef Scott Bagshaw last weekend. Pizza doh!
