To start your day with a taste of B.C., here’s a recipe from Naramata Inn chef Ned Bell for a frittata using ingredients from this province.
Ideal for breakfast, brunch, or lunch, this dish can also be served for those who enjoy breakfast for dinner.
Yield: two frittatas
6 eggs from Bella’s Homestead
2 tablespoons cream from D Dutchmen Dairy
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon sumac (or smoked paprika)
1 cup squash from LocalMotive Farm
(Note: Butternut works well, there are so many different varieties to choose. Pick whatever is available and lots interesting. Peel, dice and roast in a 375 degree oven until tender.)
1/2 cup spinach from Medley Organics, sliced thin
4 tablespoons King Cole Blue Cheese from Upper Bench Fromagerie in Naramata
Whisk the eggs and cream together in a bowl, season with salt and pepper and sumac.
In a small preheated cast iron pan, pour the egg mixture in the pan and place in a preheated oven for 12 minutes or until cooked.
Serve with toasted sourdough and a side of crispy local bacon if you choose.
Also goes well with a glass of Naramata Apple Cider and a local pear for dessert.
