Farmscape for July 16, 2019
The 2019 Chef's Series, held in conjunction with Taste of Saskatchewan, kicks off today and wraps up on Sunday.
Taste of Saskatchewan, underway until Sunday at Kiwanis Park in Saskatoon allows visitors to sample food from over 31 of the city's finest restaurants.
Among the highlights again this year is the Chef’s Series.
Clinton Monchuk, the Executive Director of Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan, explains the Chef's series is a cooking competition that highlights the food products produced in Saskatchewan.
Clip-Clinton Monchuk-Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan:
The Chef Series is kind of like the TV series called Chopped.
What it is is some of the best chefs from Saskatchewan go together in a head to head cooking competition.
What makes this competition a little bit different is you come to the stage, you have no idea what you're going to be preparing that day.
You open the black box and what ever is in there, you have to use all of those ingredients to actually make a meal.
Then we have judges that judge that plate that is prepared from each of the chefs that are up on stage.
On top of that what ends up happening is, while the chefs are preparing the different meals, we will make sure that the audience has an opportunity to understand how that canola was produced here in Saskatchewan or how the beef is raised on Saskatchewan ranches or in the feedlots here in the province.
It give us an opportunity to engage with consumers and also answer questions that they may have.
Monchuk says this is a really informative way of leaning more about your food and how to cook your food.
