There are endless beautiful locations to picnic around the Kelowna area. Wineries, parks, farms, hikes… so why not add to that local experience by tasting the terroir of where you are? Make it fun by planning your shop like a scavenger hunt, start with an empty picnic basket or cooler then plan your route. It’s so easy to do in Kelowna; here are some ideas on where to go:

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!

Nothing is as delicious as eating fresh, local produce - so whenever possible I stop at local farms and orchards to grab my ingredients. In the winter great one-stop shops are at our Kelowna Farmers’ & Crafters' Market (open most Saturdays 9:00 am - 1:00 pm) and Quality Greens. Several of the needed ingredients can be picked up at these two spots.
