Since that time Lee has embraced the Local Philosophy. With a new addition to the family, Lee desired a return to the lifestyle of his roots and the healthy environment of an agriculture region. In the Okanagan, he's found an extraordinary community of sustainably minded farmers, truly handcrafted microbrews, boutique wineries, and a breathtakingly beautiful valley with a more simple approach to life. An avid fly fisherman, Lee is also enthusiastic about the recreational lifestyle opportunities available nearby. Lee's menus predominately take a fresh approach to seasonal, local cuisine. His culinary philosophy is based on the integrity of ingredients that are seasonally inspired, sustainably raised and locally grown. "I want food to be authentic yet sophisticated, with an emphasis on the bounty sourced from nearby farmers. Food should simply taste like it is supposed to. Local is such a perfect fit for me, as they're all about taste. As a chef, this is Nirvana. No waiting for deliveries from a truck in the city, the ingredients are literally right down the road. It truly is farm to fork. Local is much more than a name, it's a way of living.
