What the Orchard Kitchen is:
All year round we host weekly Farmhouse Dinners, with one seating, from Thursday - Saturday (with special "Local's Night" Thursdays in the Fall and Winter) Reservations required: 360-321-1517
We Teach Cooking Classes in the fall and winter in our beautiful kitchen
In the gorgeous summer season, we host "In the Field" Events & Wine Tasting Luncheons
We will also host your Private Party, in our Farmhouse Dining Room or in our historic 1920's Fred Grimm Barn
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.
