“This is of course a very credible publication with a very wide reach,” said Aviva Kohen, Tourism Saskatoon’s media director, who organized a visit for several journalists in July. “So at the moment Saskatoon is causing a sensation when it comes to our craft drink and culinary scene.”

Canada’s hottest new food town is where you would least expect it, writes Veronica Meewes: “Guests in Saskatoon can now enjoy fine dining without the high prices and sophistication – and the city’s affordability and space for creativity (entirely too are silent about the actual physical space.)) attracts more like-minded entrepreneurs every year. “

Meewes traces the culinary history of Saskatoon and its culinary rise after Chef Dale MacKay returned home to open a business.

“I’ve never seen a food culture evolving faster than Saskatoon in my life,” one of McKay’s accomplices, Jesse Zuber, told Meewes. “When we got here the food culture was missing and still under the influence of chain restaurants, but there was a large population looking for something more. Young professionals and young families want to put down roots and have the same experiences that they had in larger cities. “

The article also mentions The Night Oven, Venn Coffee Roasters, The Hollows, and Primal bakery.

Getting media attention is part of a wider effort to get the city recognized, Kohen told the travel industry.
