FarmFolkCityFolk is pleased to announce the location and date for the Okanagan’s second annual Feast of Fields event. On Sunday, August 22, Brock Farm in Okanagan Falls will play host to the celebration of farmers, vintners, chefs, food, artisans and producers of all kinds.
A 25-course, wine-paired, wandering tasting menu for just $85? That’s what guests of the second annual Okanagan Feast of Fields will be treated to. Twenty-five of the top chefs of the Okanagan-Similkameen have paired with local farmers, wineries and breweries to create this celebration of local food.
On arrival, guests are handed a linen napkin and a wine glass and head off to roam and discover the great food and beverages of the region. Set in the beautiful fields of Brock Farm in Okanagan Falls, surrounded by stunning mountains and vineyards, guests will have the arduous task of tasting and sampling through more than 25 menu items.
“This event is great value,” says Feast of Fields coordinator Rhys Pender, “where else can you enjoy the creations of 25 restaurants in one place at one time? And each one paired with wine or beer? It is a dream come true for food lovers who want to experience the best of the Okanagan culinary scene and meet the producers and chefs that create it together.” Tickets are available online at www.feastoffields.com and at Choices Market in Kelowna. Tickets are $85 for adults and $15 for children aged 7 – 12 and free for those under 6.
Feast of Fields showcases the strong connections between farmer and chef and highlights producers of Okanagan wine, beer and artisanal food products. The area’s food and agricultural communities unite to present a fantastic culinary showcase while raising awareness of the importance and enjoyment of eating locally. Stay tuned to see who is participating!
The event is a fundraiser for FarmFolkCityFolk and their work with both farm and city to help create a sustainable food system for British Columbia. The Okanagan-Similkameen region is a hotbed of food production with the fruits and vegetables of the region highly sought after by chefs throughout British Columbia. Not only will guests have a great culinary experience but know that all proceeds are going to help create great experiences into the future.
Feast of Fields provides the public with an up-close-and-personal opportunity to sample and swirl local products while supporting a not-for-profit organization that has been committed to food security projects in British Columbia since 1993. Proceeds from Feast of Fields benefit the provincial work of FarmFolkCityFolk. Last year FarmFolkCityFolk earmarked $5000 of the proceeds to go to the BC Seeds Project.
