We just got back from a trip to the Okanagan to shoot an episode of our show, Anna and Kristinaís Grocery Bag.
The weather co-operated, thankfully, as we were spending time in local orchards and vineyards. It’s almost more beautiful up there in the fall than in the summer, with all the leaves turning colours and the air so crisp.
One of the highlights of the trip was the resort we stayed at, The Cove Lakeside Resort. Talk about big spacious rooms and suites, with well equipped kitchens and cozy fireplaces! A great place to take the kids, especially in the summer, when the pools are open.
The other highlight was wine tasting at Mission Hill Winery, where we also shot the cooking portion of our episode. I’m really trying to expand my wine tastes. Sommeliers and other wine aficionados are always preaching the merits of Riesling, and a good one really isn’t as sweet as you’d think.
But I’m not giving up my fave – a glass of oaky, buttery Chardonnay!
