One of the strongest assets of the Okanagan Valley's wine country is hosting a culinary series until early September. Joy Road Catering, a talented crew of culinary masters, will combine their foodie expertise with the finest Okanagan wines from boutique wineries across the district. Overlooking Skaha Lake, patrons can enjoy perfectly paired meals and libations with friends, family and loved ones amid the great outdoors. Wine connoisseurs who wish to attend can reserve rooms at the Walnut Beach Resort and enjoy one of the numerous events held periodically throughout August and the beginning of September.
With an emphasis on cuisine du terroir, or food of the earth, Joy Road Catering uses the Valley's climate, weather, growing conditions and soil to craft their gourmet cuisine. Always customized according to each event, the menus boast the freshest produce to make dishes like heirloom beet salad and trout with grilled zucchini and cherry tomatoes.
At the Winemaker event, Joy Road will provide one of their tantalizing menus, served alfresco at a communal table with a handful of other cultural enthusiasts. After soaking up the views of the beautiful Skaha Lake, guests can return to their Osoyoos hotel rooms with their hearts and appetites full from the memorable evening.
