Last February I received a message from my friend Chef James Holmes. He told me he had a new restaurant in the works. And then as the days ticked by and we chatted more and more I was asked to write a post about the new restaurant. I, of course, said yes.
In an effort to widen the exposure I got in touch with my friends over at Eat North to ask if I could feature the restaurant on their website. They said yes! This was a new adventure for me and I’m not going to lie, I was pretty excited. I mean, I got to travel to Penticton by myself without my husband or son. I pretty much had an all access pass to the kitchen and restaurant to take photos. And I made some life long connections with people I probably would have never met. I was in heaven the whole trip. Catching the behind the scenes of the new Craft Corner Kitchen will be one of the food highlights of my year.
So here’s the thing, I took a huge amount of photos while I was there but of course there is no way they could post them all over on Eat North’s site. But because this is my blog I can do whatever I want so I am going to post all my favorite photos here. But before I do that, here is the link to my post on Eat North’s website. Click here and go take a read of that and come back for all the photos below.
Ok, back? Good. When I was going through my photos I thought it would be best to separate them into three groups. First will be the prep, these photos were taken the day the restaurant cleared inspection and everyone was excited to get back in the kitchen.
Second will be the photos from the Industry Night Tasting Dinner, this is where you get to see all those great food shots, and there are some pretty tasty treats. Last I will post my photos of the space and some of the unique features of the building.
I know that makes for a very long post BUT I promise it’s worth it. So…let’s get to it.
Industry Night Tasting Dinner
So that’s the best of the rest, thanks for sticking with me. If you are in Penticton you need to go see Craft Corner Kitchen located at 557 Main Street. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
I also wanted to give a big thanks to James for asking me be there in the beginning. It truly was an honour. I loved the opportunity and I can’t wait to come back for more memorable meals.
