PENTICTON - Food and film lovers will want to be in Osoyoos next month.
Devour! Okanagan is described as a Food Film Festival and will be held at the Watermark Beach Resort in Osoyoos from May 6 to May 8.
Chefs from Osoyoos and across B.C. put together a feast — on screen and on the plate, according to the event's website.
The event is an extension of an international celebration of cinema, food and wine culture created by Nova Scotia Chef Michael Howell.
Devour! Okanagan starts with a chef showdown on Friday, May 6, pitting local chef Adair Scott against chef Michael Howell in an East-West showdown. The two will create cocktails paired with canapés for 80 guests, starting at 7 p.m. Cost is $45 per person with dancing at 9 p.m.
Waterfront Beach Resort’s boardwalk becomes a Slow Food Market on Saturday where local artisans and producers set up their wares.
Saturday night, culinary memories will be made as a six course meal is prepared by several culinary craftsmen. Each course will be paired with a selection of Similkameen wines and a food-themed film. Chefs and winemakers will be present to explain their inspiration for each course. Tickets are $65, and the dinner starts at 6 p.m.
