A Keremeos chef will be eating across the world after a lotto win.

Steven Bartkowski won $675,000 on his Set for Life ticket and plans to use it dining overseas, according to a BCLC news release.

"I'd love to travel to Hawaii, Fiji and Costa Rica," he said in the release. "While I'm at these places, I want to enjoy all different types of good food."

Bartkowski was sitting in his kitchen when he scratched the ticket and phoned family and friends as soon as he discovered he'd won.

He purchased his ticket at Pharmasave in Keremeos, the town he has lived for the last seven years.
