Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan launches #loveSASKfood

Jul-16-2015

(SASKATOON, SK)  If you love food, you won't want to miss out on Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan's celebration of Saskatchewan-grown food at A Taste of Saskatchewan happening right now, July 14-19, 2015, in Saskatoon.

In conjunction with this event, Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan has launched #loveSASKfood to encourage foodies to show their appreciation for home-grown food by tweeting or posting pictures to Instagram.

A new website, loveSASKfood.org has also been created as a resource for consumers. On the site, you will find delicious recipes, profiles and videos of real Saskatchewan farmers, as well as information on upcoming food-related events.

"We're proud of the quality food that we produce in Saskatchewan," states Adele Buettner, CEO of Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan. "From beef to chicken, eggs, pork, milk, wheat, canola, pulses, barley, flax and much, much more, Saskatchewan farmers are diligent in their efforts to produce the best possible foods for consumers to eat. What farmers grow in Saskatchewan is exported all over the world. loveSASKfood is our way of inviting consumers to engage in conversations about food and farming in Saskatchewan - and celebrate the incredible array of food produced right here at home."

Throughout the week at A Taste of Saskatchewan, top chefs are featuring Saskatchewan foods in the delicious dishes they're cooking up for the Chef's Series stage at lunch time and over the supper hour. Visitors who purchase dishes featuring Saskatchewan-grown products from participating restaurants are eligible to enter a draw for a new barbecue or a chef-prepared meal at the Saskatoon Club.

Join us at noon on Sunday, July 19th where the winner of the final Top Chef Saskatchewan will be announced. We are very pleased that Mayor Don Atchison will be joining us on the judges panel. Come out to cheer on your favourite chef!
