“Chefs the world over talk about dining with the seasons. But in the Okanagan, Thompson and Similkameen Valleys, they talk about the micro-seasons—those few short days when cherries or tomatoes or wild asparagus are at absolute peak ripeness, when their fragrance is intoxicating and when their flavour simply explodes on your tongue.”

“Embrace the harvest and farm-to-table fare ”

“A well thought-out book, with restaurants arranged alphabetically, beautiful photography of the chefs and their dishes, and suggested pairings of wine, beer, or cider … nothing too “chef-y” or complicated.”

“A great gift for a local or someone who wants to take the Okanagan home with them wherever they are in this world.”
