“Chefs the world over talk about dining with the seasons. But in the Okanagan, Thompson and Similkameen Valleys, they talk about the micro-seasons—those few short days when cherries or tomatoes or wild asparagus are at absolute peak ripeness, when their fragrance is intoxicating and when their flavour simply explodes on your tongue.”
