    They say you can never go home again. They also say that you can't take the farm out of a person.  Kevin Power speaks with author and  "foodie extraordinaire" Amy Jo Ehman who did, in fact, go home again.  This time to the home of her ancestors.  And as for farm life, Amy Jo has carried all of the nostalgia and knowledge of growing up on the farm and her lifestyle and culinary skills most certainly reflect that!  The historical component of this conversation picks up on the discussion  with Mervin Weiss in Episode 95 and speaks to the history of  Germans from Russia  which is also a part of Amy Jo Ehman's history.  Please see the links in the show notes for more information on Kevin's guest as well as sponsorship links.

    Visit Amy Jo Ehman and learn how to get copies of her books here.

    SaskScapes - Episode 94 - with Henry Woolf

    THIS EPISODE IS SPONSORED BY THE SASKATCHEWAN ASSOCIATION OF THEATRE PROFESSIONALS. 
    This is the first episode in a special SaskScapes Presents:       The Theatre Series
    Kevin Power is joined by one of Saskatoon's most beloved actors/directors. Henry Woolf's career spans over 60 years and in this episode, he takes the listener on the journey of his career. His remarkable experiences growing up during WWII in England, his early theatrical influences, his academic studies, and his relationship with playwright Harold Pinter. Henry Woolf has influenced and inspired many Saskatchewan actors, many of whom went on to professional careers. A former professor in the theatre department at the University of Saskatchewan and his tremendous body of work during his tenure as director of the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival, it's no surprise why he is one of this province's theatrical treasures.

German Culture Alive

The thread of immigrant life through the generations is so clearly illustrated in this story of food, family and mouth watering recipes! Kevin presents a beautiful platter upon which Amy serves up this personal story of her ancestors and the ways in which they adapted the cuisine of their homeland to the ingredients and influences of their new home in Saskatchewan. Three cheers and five stars for a fulfilling and inspiring episode!
