Saskatoon Suggestions

Heading out to Saskatoon on Thursday to be an examiner over the weekend. I know the last time I did this in 2012 eG member @Junior still had his restaurant Weczeria. A little research shows me this is unfortunately no longer the case. 

 

Anyone been recently - have any suggestions of places I should eat?

 Do not expect you will get hordes of responses.xD   But I remember reading recently about a chef  there.  The restaurant appears to be right downtown and still in business and getting good reviews.

Ok - I shall see what I can find. Looks like a quick walk from my hotel - reservations seem to be for two - will have to look into finding a dining companion or whether I can eat at the bar by myself.

 

I suspect you are right about the lack of hordes!

Ayden is worth going to.  The chef knows his stuff. 

 

You may also want to look into Primal Pasta and The Hollows.  Both are owned by a former employee of mine, and she (and her husband) are great at what they do.

Tell us what you find!

Bone marrow at both. Sound very promising!

 

I've just spent an hour down the rabbit hole looking at your old posts - did @nwyles open in Jericho Beach? Is that where Ling was doing desserts?

@nwyles owned the Hamilton Street Grill in Yaletown until last July or August.  He sold it after a good run of 20 years.  And no, Ling didn't work there.  Last I heard, she had moved to Seattle.

So that whole thread about the Jericho beach was just play! Familiar with what has happened to Ling since but I know she made desserts in someone's restaurant before she left Van. Can I be nosy and ask what your restaurant is?

In actuality I don't have a restaurant.  I used to be a chef at several different restaurants, but now I am teaching culinary, baking, pastry, chocolate, bread and sugarwork.

 

I even recently took a course through Ecole Chocolat, (as faculty development) which I understand that you have been affiliated with.

And yes, we got rather out of hand here in Western Canada (read Vancouver).  We all got to know each other so well that there were several inside jokes going around.

Indeed - I'm the shelf life tutor - and I'll be escorting a group to Belgium this fall for their Master's course. I'll PM you so we can keep this topic sort of on topic!
