Okanagan Feast of Fields 2015
We came - we ate - we drank!
Not so long ago, in a land not so far away, chef Michael Standlandter partnered with Jamie Kennedy to create an event that got urbanites out to Ontario farms. In 1995, with permission to use the Feast of Fields name in BC, FarmFolkCityFolk organized Feast of Fields as annual fundraisers to highlight the connections between farmers and chefs and to increase the connections between farm folks and city folks.
What can I say except that it was a bloody brilliant idea!
I am currently reminiscing about all the tastes and smells and smiles from my fifth Feast of Fields event (their seventh okanagan event), held August 16, 2015 at Meadow Vista Honey Wines in Kelowna.
