Holiday shopping have you ready to relax this Christmas Eve? Decided not to cook a big meal for Christmas Day?
Swap the hustle of the big city for the lakeside beauty of Kelowna, an Okanagan city that’s perfect for relaxing, recharging, and soaking up some local culture. And if you didn’t already know, it has an unparalleled food and drink scene.
Kelowna has become a food destination with more and more delicious restaurants opening every year. Here are my top picks for those with delicious gluten free options on their menus.
Our local chefs are thrilled to welcome the bounty that summertime brings to the Okanagan and can’t wait to integrate the newest seasonal ingredients into their menus.
We are a city with bountiful agritourism and gastronomic adventures so go ahead and savour Kelowna from the ground up.

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!

Don’t get me wrong, I love popcorn shrimp and gourmet burgers, but sometimes I want to choose the location for family dinner out. With two small kids, my husband and I aren’t often in charge of that decision. Recently we’ve stumbled on a couple of dining options that strike a balance, kid friendly options at adult centric restaurants (who happen to be totally family friendly!)
I love everything that the Cipes family does. Lead by Stephen Cipes, the proprietors of this destination winery have built a beautiful empire where they feature the very best of what the Okanagan has to offer while maintaining solid grass roots.
