Most locals that grew up in the valley can remember those carefree summer days, once school was out and the fruits became ripe on the neighbourhood trees. Well, that time of year is back!
The foundation of the agriculture industry here in Kelowna began on lush orchards offering top quality tree fruits for the community. Cideries have found a way to promote the natural attributes of the Okanagan apple by transforming them into a delicious drink.

Asparagus season is here! And I plan to eat it each and every day while it is in season. My favourite way to prepare asparagus is lightly brushed with olive oil, grilled on the barbeque and then topped with Maldon sea salt and lemon zest or balsamic vinegar. Love it in pasta, perfect in a panini with goat cheese, excellent as a pesto or starring in a frittata or omelette. I am just mad about asparagus!
