Let us cook for you!
The only thing we love more than hosting visitors and events is cooking delicious food; as an heritage site with a keen interest in agriculture and forgotten food skills, we’re always experimenting in our kitchen, trying old recipes and playing with unusual ingredients from the many skillde farmers and orchardists here in the spectacular Similkameen Valley. Inspiration is everywhere: it can be found in our neighbours’ fields, farmsteads and root cellars as well as in the margin notes of many vintage family cookbooks.
Unlike many of the bigger catering companies, we have no set menus because every meal we make is unique, always depending on what’s available and in season as well as your own preferences and budget. We don’t provide plated service or “tweezer food”, but we will fill you and your guests up on quality rustic food reflecting the character of both this spectacular property as well as the breathtaking valley we live in. And yes, we can bring the food to you.
Served family-style or as a buffet, we can provide everything from charcuterie boards and light snacks to full lunches or dinners for as many as 150 guests. Need bagged lunches for a group hike or day exploring the wineries of the Similkameen Valley? Snacks and a full dinner for a wedding? A grazing table for an anniversary or celebration of life? Sandwich platters for a staff meeting? An intimate dinner for a family reunion? No matter the event, on our site or elsewhere in the Similkameen, we’ve got you covered.
Because every menu is seasonal and highly personalized, prices can vary significantly. A light grazing table with our own preserves, fruit, cheese and charcuterie could start at $12-15/person, lunches at $16-20/person and dinners starting at $25/plate.
