Over a five-day winecation in the Okanagan (yes, we have an “official” name for our wine vacation) with our friends B&K, we visited a number of wineries, eateries and attractions in the area.

Could be the mustard or smoked alder salts. The Garlic Fries was sooo good! They weren’t double-fried but it’s light and crispy. I’m not a huge garlic person but for some reason I found these fries super addictive. (more…)
