Sunset Magazine
"On God's Mountain Estate, out in a vineyard overlooking a shimmering lake, chef-caterers Cameron Smith and Dana Ewart cook and serve simple, beautiful wine dinners using ingredients from the land around them- the lush Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. Although they have no restaurant, their naturally elegant intensely flavoured cooking is helping shape a new regional cuisine in a place that's never been known for great food.

"If you have a chance to attend any dinner or food-and-wine event that Joy Road Catering is involved in, do not hesitate. Joy Road is the premier catering company in the Okanagan (it could give most Vancouver players a run for their money) focused on local fresh foods and elegant dining in and out of doors."

Western Living Magazine
Joy Road Catering's owners and chefs- Dana Ewart and Cameron Smith were named to Western Living's list of top foodies under 40. This was a great honour for them to be placed amongst a group of sensational talents.

Globe and Mail - Lucy Waverman
"Cameron Smith and Dana Ewart are two enterprising Torontonians who used to work for uber chef Chris McDonald at the former Avalon restaurant. They were attracted to the nascent food and wine scene in the Okanagan and opened Joy Road Catering to showcase the area's food and wine."

"We attended a wine maker's dinner at an eclectic inn called God's Mountain Estate situated on a cliff overlooking Skaha Lake. Dana and Cam matched the exceptional but simple food with very credible wines from Wild Goose Winery."

National Post - Amy Rosen
"Joy Road Catering Smith and Ewart call their food cuisine du terroir, and with good reason. Tonight's menu begins with home made bread made from organic Canadian wheat and antipasti, including local goat cheese and fresh figs- all of it washed down with Okanagan Blue Mountain Brut."

"And while the couple takes the field-to-table ethos very seriously, their training is just as impressive..."

North Shore News - Deana Lancaster
"For years I've harboured a secret fantasy..."

City Food - Rhonda May
"If eating alfresco is the key- then the hottest dinner ticket all summer long
was a seat at one of Cameron and Dana's Sunday dinners on God's Mountain….

Globe and Mail - Alexandra Gill - Side Dish
"....some of the best country cooking, in Penticton"
