MPSG-SENTRUHL-letterhead

Carman, MB – August 25, 2016 – Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers (MPSG) and The Sentruhl Project are excited to announce a partnership promoting Manitoba pulses, Manitoba agriculture, and the joys of getting together with good people to eat food grown in our province.

On Sept. 25, join MPSG and The Sentruhl Project at Hawthorne Estates, located about 25 minutes north of Winnipeg, for an evening you won’t forget: Prairie Pulse: A Sunday Dinner

“It’s the International Year of Pulses. They’re healthy. They’re tasty. And we’ve partnered with some great chefs to not only showcase new, flavourful pulse recipes, but also to show Manitobans that these crops are grown in their province and are incredibly good for you and the planet,” said MPSG’s Director of Communications Toban Dyck. “It’ll be a true celebration of Manitoba food and agriculture.”

Dinner tickets are $70 per person, with a three-course flight of wine or beer for an additional $15. Transportation from Winnipeg to Hawthorne Estates will be available for $10 per person. Tickets are available for purchase through Sentruhl. Contact sentruhl.wpg@gmail.com or call 204-590-6818.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be working with MPSG on this project,” said Sentruhl Chef Gordon Bailey. “We love cooking with pulses, and have for quite some time. The opportunity to bring people together in a beautiful, rural environment to eat and learn about food that grows in Manitoba soil is, for us as chefs, one we won’t soon forget. And we hope you won’t, either.”

Every week leading up to the event, the chefs at Sentruhl will be releasing a new, pulse-focused recipe on their social media channels.

But, ultimately, its goal is to answer the question on the minds of all Manitobans and Canadians: what is Canadian food?
