This September in Canadian Living, we visit Saskatchewan in our Cross Canada Cooks series. Here is a glimpse of the good eats I enjoyed in Saskatchewan that you didn't get to see in the pages of our magazine. My visit to a John and Shirley Bennett's farm gave me a memorable and mouth watering taste of Prairie food and pulses galore. I visited them as a part of a fact finding trip of the provinces top crops - pulses. I learned about pulses, but more than that, I learned about good old warm and genuine Western hospitality. As an added bonus John took me on my first tractor ride! After the tour, lunch was served to a hungry and happy group of journalists.

After all those good eats, I enjoyed one of my most memorable runs along the South Saskatchewan river.
