Rhonda Turner and her husband, Henry Murray, bought The Mountain Range business in 2008. An experienced backcountry cook, Turner married her skills with her husband's South Pacific creativity and the couple have committed to providing healthy food for their customers. They offer a unique service, with a range of East Indian, Fijian, Thai, South African, French and Canadian meals that are packaged in reusable, recyclable containers with instructions and serving suggestions. Turner said that the meals are inspired globally and created locally in a commercial kitchen situated near Premier Lake, British Columbia.

Perfect for on the road, the selection includes gourmet frozen main meals, appetizers, soups and baked goods.

"Our food is perfect for an RV as you just heat and serve, and cook your own rice or potato side dish," said Turner. "We do party pack sizes as well, for anyone entertaining guests."

She said that with less than 20 minutes to heat up on the stovetop, there is more time for exploring and relaxing. Their motto is "Who's cooking for you tonight? Let The Mountain Range."

The meals are mostly wheat-free, and ingredients are organic and local, when possible. Examples include beef bourguignon, Thai red seafood curry, roasted squash puree, beet borscht and roasted vegetable torte. To end up on a sweet note, heat up a wild berry crumble or finish with a cool coconut and mango cheesecake.

Turner said that they have a growing list of stores where their food is sold in the East and West Kootenay and the Columbia Valley. Online shopping will be available in 2012.
