Devour returns

Devour is perhaps the most scrumdiddlyumptious event that Kelowna will host in 2015 and people are so excited for it that it is already sold out. Aimed at Kelowna foodies, it's mantra is to "Eat, Drink, and be Social". I had a chance to attend the event in year one and it selection of great wine and tapas is mind blowing. You have 49 local leaders in the culinary field competing for your taste buds as they aim to win the Best Bite, Best Sip, and Best Pairing awards that will be chosen by those in attendance. They rise to the challenge with ease. 
The initial event in March last year sold out and although the tickets aren't cheap ($110) if you are thinking of going to one food event this spring I would highly recommend this one.  “The 2015 lineup will live up to all the expectations”, says Event Director, Holly Dober. “All of the 2014 favorites are returning together with many exciting new Presenters. The event has really caught the attention of the best of the best in the Okanagan culinary scene and they are all bringing their best to DEVOUR this year.” As an open tasting event, attendees will pay a single admission fee to indulge in this unique culinary experience. “It is a cocktail party, a fine dinner at the best local restaurant and a night on the town with friends, all rolled into one" says Dober.
The event is Saturday March 7th and will be held at the The Centre for Learning at Okanagan College. For more information and tickets please go to: http://www.devourkelowna.ca/
