About Brooke & Oliver
OLIVER KIENAST – CHEF, HUSBAND, FARMER, FORAGER
Growing up on a honey farm in the North Okanagan, Oliver was fortunate to experience the fruits of the orchards they pollinated, the vegetables of his grandma’s garden, and the meat they bartered for with neighbours. His food is still informed by these fresh, unfettered flavours, which were in time with the seasons and the land.
Oliver’s skills encompass his food philosophy: butchery, charcuterie, preservation, fermentation, and also raising, growing and foraging for many of his ingredients. Flavour begins in the seed and the soil!
BROOKE FADER – SOMMELIER, WIFE, COOK, GARDENER
Joining Oliver on his culinary escapades is his wife, Brooke. A native of Vancouver Island, her love of food and country living brought them together. She is the convivium leader for the local Slow Food board and founding member of Slow Fish Canada.
