Experienced wine country chef heads up award-winning winery restaurant in Okanagan Falls
Fall brings fresh new ingredients and a new face to the kitchen team at Liquidity Bistro. Executive Chef Simon Bouchard has an experienced approach to wine country cuisine, with a background that includes roles as catering chef at Mission Hill Winery, sous chef at The Bear Foot Bistro in Whistler and, most recently, chef at The Vineyard Kitchen at Black Hills Estate Winery.
“I’m excited to build on the success of the award-winning culinary program at Liquidity Bistro,” says Chef Bouchard. “The surroundings are stunning and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with local farmers and producers and getting to know the terroir of the Okanagan Falls region.”
Liquidity Bistro, named one of the 100 Best Restaurants in Canada by OpenTable diners for the past two years, focuses on fresh, clean and simple food that respects the ingredients that local farmers work so hard to produce. The food, service and wine are paired to deliver a wine country experience that is unique to Okanagan Falls.
Every season Liquidity Bistro’s menu evolves to show off the region’s amazing bounty and the best produce from local farmers. Select ingredients are also chosen from the winery’s on-site garden in the vineyard. An extensive range of wines from all members of the Okanagan Falls Winery Association are featured; fully showcasing this distinctive microclimate at the south end of Skaha Lake.

Visit the tasting room (11am-6pm) before lunch or dinner to sample wines and make a selection to pair with dishes in the bistro, or shop for a favourite bottle to take home and enjoy.
