Great Articles pre-Launch……….

  Just a mere two months into this adventure, it was seriously humbling to read these articles yet again, both capture the true vision for Backyard Farm Chefs Table. The anticipation of cooking in this new kitchen and dining room has not left, as a smile swiftly finds its way every time I come in to start the days list of projects, or commute “home” via Mikkels golfcart after an evening of food and good company  . I couldn’t be happier with the results, function meeting character-and it certainly exceeded my expectations in both aspects. Looking back at the process, it is hard to believe that Ton and I managed to accomplish what we did in such a short amount of time…..Thanks Jeanette and Tarryn for capturing the vision behind the experience. http://eatmagazine.ca/table-for-20/ http://www.thefieldguide.ca/Chef-Van-Hooydonks-Backyard-Farm-is-a-Chefs-Dream  ...

Great Article in BC Living Magazine!

    Here is an article written for BC Living magazine, courtesy of one of the FAM tour media guests our first weekend open. Such a great article, and most certainly represents many of the amazing culinary and agri-tourism activities offered in our fantastic region! It was a combination cooking demonstration and multi course wine paired dinner, paired with Maverick Estate Winery. Such a great evening of  great company, local food and fabulous wines. We look forward to the next visit! Big thanks to Catherine for joining us, not to mention poaching some beautiful eggs for our first course……     http://www.bcliving.ca/travel/11-things-you-must-do-in-osoyoos-this-summer  ...
