#FavouriteThings – Autumn Wine Touring & Tasting in BC Wine Country – Part 4

Just about a week left to enjoy September and I can’t think of anything more enjoyable than winery touring. Kelowna and West Kelowna have some wonderful wineries making excellent wines and there are a number of restaurants that are on my swoon worthy list.

#TasteofThursday Root Vegetable Torte direct from Chef Rod Butters “The Okanagan Table” Cookbook

Alternating different colours of vegetables produces the greatest effect – a mandolin is an essential tool for making thin slices.” Chef Rod Butters
