Okanagan Film Commission Release on Wild Food Premiere




Shot in the Okanagan

Premieres September 9


Kelowna, BC (September 3, 2015) – The television series, QUEST OUTWEST: Wild Food premieres on Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN).on September 9. The series was shot in a variety of locations in the Okanagan.

Quest OutWest: Wild Food http://aptn.ca/questoutwest/ features Syilx storyteller Tracey Kim Bonneau who goes on the hunt for a truly healthy meal, armed only with a love of good food and a sense of humour, to gather, dig, hunt and fish the foods of her ancestors. Tracey’s inspiration stems from her love for preserving food and preparing hearty dishes with her mother and grandmother on the ranch.

In this entertaining and interesting  series, Tracey meets up with old and new friends at local organic farms, wineries, homesteads and wild places in the traditional Okanagan territory. Join Tracey as she swaps stories, secret ingredients, local history and cooking methods.

Tracey’s connection with traditional foods starts with fond childhood memories of the farm on Shingle Creek Road where she grew up in the Okanagan.

Jon Summerland, Okanagan Film Commissioner, comments, “We continue to be very inspired by series like Quest OutWest: Wild Food being the home to this series, and by the continued growth of the Okanagan as a production hub for Film n TV projects.”

Executive producer, Shawn Williamson, of Brightlight Pictures Inc. (www.brightlightpictures.com), adds, “From my first conversation with Tracey I knew that this was a show I would watch!   We are very proud to have been part of such a great production.   As an added bonus the locations in the Okanagan are breathtaking!”
