We host dinners and classes and events that focus on Vincent's deep knowledge of food (What "deep knowledge" you ask? Read About Us), Tyla's interest and passion for wine, as well as the inspiration of our many friends in the food and wine industry. We source our ingredients from our own 3 acre farm, Whidbey Island, the Salish Sea and environs. Please note: we are an Omnivore establishment.
Let us send you Pacific Northwest inspired & farm friendly ideas on food and cooking. Never fussy and always delicious!
Each weekend we offer Farmhouse Style Dinners at Orchard Kitchen that make you feel more like a guest at a dinner party than a customer in a restaurant. Call to make a reservation: 360-321-1517
Orchard Kitchen is all about collaboration with the farmers, vintners, cheesemakers, chefs and oyster men we love. We believe in being part of a community that creates delicious, fresh, healthy food, while helping to sustain the Puget Sound's artisanal producers. We strive to showcase the best ingredients of the season with what we find delicious and inspiring from the local area.
We offer hands-on, "farm to table" experiences, designed to educate and engage your senses. Walk the farm rows, pick the freshest possible produce, gather the eggs right from the hens, then learn seasonal, fresh ways to prepare the bounty. You will learn how to prepare these super fresh ingredients from chefs who can offer a lot of experiences and insight. Students of all skill levels are welcome, from the novice to the adventurous home cook.
Throughout the year we will offer special classes, focusing on a specific local guest producer or a favorite winemaker or brewer. These classes may take the form of tastings or instructive presentations, but always include lunch.
One class ticket includes:
• 1 & ½ hours of cooking instruction
• Family Style Lunch
• 2 glasses of wine per person* (or a jar of local honey if you don’t have wine)
• Coffee or Tea service
For Classes: Class arrival is at 10:30am. Please arrive as close to 10:30am as possible to allow us to complete our set up for the class. Lunch is around 12:30pm.
Tickets at the Orchard Kitchen are non-refundable. If you find yourself unable to attend, you may transfer the ticket to someone else. However we are unable to refund fees and all payments are final. We look forward to feeding you!
Is there a better way to spend a summer evening than feasting in the farm fields with friends at Orchard Kitchen?

Come enjoy the freshest feast, surrounded by the summer’s bounty. $75 per person plus tax. Does not include wine. An assortment of wines by the bottle will be available at time of arrival. $20 corkage fee applies.

In the case of bad weather we will host the dinner inside our barn and farmhouse dining room.
Interested in hosting a Private Cooking Class at the Orchard Kitchen? We'd love to! Please call to set up an exclusive class just for you and your invited friends.
Want to plan a business team building class with us? We can do that too! These classes focus on working in teams, creating a common goal and sitting down to celebrate what your team accomplished.
We can host these classes during the work week to accommodate corporate schedules. We have a minimum price of $600 or $100 per person, whichever is greater, plus tax. This does not include any alcoholic beverages. Our class theme can range depending on your group's interest but a few popular team building themes are: Paella, Pasta or Sweet & Savory Souffles.
