Pair Wine with Culture
To Do: Devour Osoyoos Festival and Tinhorn Creek’s Concert Series. Goal: Feast with films; sip and swirl to song.
The meals at Devour Osoyoos’s main screening gala and multi- course dinner are a far cry from standard Cineplex fare. Chefs fly in from all over Canada for the food and film festival, crafting dishes that pair with short, food-themed cinematic selections. They are sometimes inspired by the explicit ingredients in the movie, other times by the prominent culture or mood. Beef short rib seco from Ancora chef Ricardo Valverde, for example, was served up at last year’s event to accompany a moving Italian film about memory and taste. Packages (which include accommodation at the Watermark Beach Resort and a pass to all the festival events) start at $369—popcorn and Captain America, this is definitely not. If you’re more into music than movies, detour down the road to Tinhorn Creek to catch one of their epic summer concerts ($40) right on the grand lawn, glass of wine in hand, of course.— Stacey Mclachlan
