ABOUT OUR KITCHEN & BAR CREATIONS


All our recipes are made from scratch and with local ingredients as much as possible. We grow and preserve our own herbs, vegetables, berries and legumes and source as much as we can from local producers. Our growing list of local suppliers is available on our website.

This menu was created with our trusted and true recipes and inspired by the following amazing cookbooks: “The Ontario Table” featuring the best food from around the province, “Rubens to Rhubarb” and “France: The Beautiful Cookbook”. These can be found on the coffee table in our Guest Lounge as they make for a good read. We hope you enjoy our kitchen creations,
