Dinners, classes & events focus on Whidbey's bounty, on Vincent's deep knowledge of food and on Tyla's interest and passion for wine. We source our ingredients from our own 3 acre organic farm, as well as Whidbey Island, the Salish Sea and environs. We are an Omnivore establishment; using the best produce, meat, cheese and fish we can find responsibly produced here in our backyard.
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.
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.

• 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)
