Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens by Amy Jo Ehman was celebrated during the month of March as Saskatchewan's official One Book, One Province selection for 2018.
The One Book, One Province selection committee said Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens was chosen for its potential to promote an understanding of the province's heritage through its food, while appealing to a broad, diverse, and contemporary audience. Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens is the story of the people and the food they prepared. The book is a tantalizing blend of pioneer cuisine and rich culinary heritage dating back to the First Nations and beyond. With dozens of photos, it is a window into life as it was then.
