Food Fairy Run

Updated: May 14

Twice a month we drive our butts down to Regina to bring some tasty treats to 10 Saskatoon homes! Our focus is to shop at independent shops that are unique to Regina. That way we spread out our support for local entrepreneurs beyond Saskatoon. It's also our way of bringing our foodie community a little special joy.

How it works: • Those who have requested to be added to the list will be notified of our next food run date and the cut off time for submitting orders. The first 10 people to get back to us will get their wishes granted! You'll be able to choose items from multiple locations.

Why only 10, you may ask? Well, in part because we only have a small car, and with storing food properly in coolers and such there is only so much room. It's also because we deliver these bundles of joy ourselves, and after a five hour round trip we've only got enough time (and energy) to deliver to 10 Saskatoon households.

• If you are one of the households we will be delivering to, we will ask for your address and phone number in advance so we can complete our deliveries as efficiently as possible.

• We practice contact-less drop off. We'll deliver the goodies from your wish list right to your door the day we pick things up, and leave them outside for you to pick-up. Deliveries usually occur later in the afternoon (beginning after 4:00 p.m.). We will send you a text to let you know your package is waiting for you.

• Your delivery will come with e-transfer payment instructions. Please send the e-transfer the same day as delivery. We do not charge anything over and above the cost of goodies, but in the past some kind folks have chosen to add a wee bit on top of the cost of goods to help with fuel costs. That kindness is not expected, but we certainly won't turn down a more generous donation. ;)

Current Food Joy Providers:

Beaks Chicken:

This is some of the best fried chicken we've ever had. And their yeast donuts are to DIE FOR. We are positively addicted. They always have their honey dipped donut on offer, and every week there is one specialty donut on the menu.

Local and Fresh:

We're excited to add Local and Fresh to our Food Fairy family. These folks are a retailer for Saskatchewan Snow Beef, Saskatchewan bred, born and raised Wagyu Beef (check them out on FaceBook and Instagram)

Be sure to order early as this outstanding product sells out quickly.

Italian Star Star:

For a list of the Italian Star Product Inventory Please Visit:

Important Note: As a small independent grocer specializing in import products and local artisanal goods, they can't always guarantee items on your wish list will be in stock upon our pickup date. The lovely people at Italian Star will do their best to substitute quality products where they can if options are available. (*Note: these folks know their stuff, and take a lot of pride in their quality; you can trust them to make good choices for you - we certainly do and have never been disappointed.)

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs, nor are we professional food reviewers. We are, however, food obsessed. Food is more than fuel; it is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.

You will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food that we know is not haute cuisine as it is at the food itself.  If we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our wonderful experiences with you.
