TouchWood Editions is pleased to announce that Flat Out Delicious: Your Definitive Guide to Saskatchewan’s Food Artisans by Jenn Sharp has been shortlisted in four award categories for the 2021 Saskatchewan Book Awards. The announcement was made on April 15 and the winners will be decided in an online ceremony on June 17.
Flat Out Delicious—a robust and inspiring travel companion for local and visiting food-lovers that reveals stories of the friendly people who craft great food in Saskatchewan—has been shortlisted four times for the 2021 Awards. These include the Ministry of Culture, Recreation, and Sport First Book Award, the University of Saskatchewan Non-Fiction Award, the City of Saskatoon/Saskatoon Public Library Saskatoon Award, and the Regina Public Library Book of the Year Award Honouring Mary Sutherland.
Author Jenn Sharp shared that her “biggest hope for Flat Out Delicious is that it will inspire people to get to know more farmers and food artisans, while impacting them on their quest for locally sourced food. To see my first book shortlisted in four SBA categories is such an honour. I know this recognition will help Flat Out Delicious find its way to more people passionate about eating well in Saskatchewan.” And, for those living in Saskatchewan, Flat Out Delicious has been made into a beautifully produced documentary series airing on CityTV SK through April and May.
