David Colombe's Cooking in Your Kitchen (RSVP 2010). focuses on easy recipes that have big robust flavours, using local ingredients as much as possible. "Living in the Okanagan is quite a culinary dream," he says, "with wide access to great produce." RSVP stands for Really Small Vernon Press but it's not a small book: some 451 photos accompany 71 recipes.
