Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 October 2017 via mobile

A very respectable institute. Starting with the drive onto the property. it is clear to see the passion for gardening and farming.

There are acres of vegetables and flowers growing everywhere. The beautiful log cabin style building where the cooking class took place is well maintained with a rustic vibe. The setting is peaceful and tranquil.
Inside the large kitchen was spotless and showed a lot of TLC. Jamie was our chef instructor and he was excellent in his presentation/ demonstration. Easy to understand and a wealth of knowledge about vegetables and their history. He shared creative and practical cooking techniques, asked questions and worked at a pace that was easy to follow.
The rest of the team were friendly and helpful as well and made everyone feel welcomed.
We sat in a large great room facing the kitchen. The demonstration took place in front of the kitchen. That made it easy to see the kitchen activity taking place along with the demonstration.
The food was outstanding and yet very simple to prepare. We have a whole new appreciation for vegetables, some
of which we had never heard of and we learned ways to better utilize all parts of the vegetables. No more throw always.
Thank you Jamie and team for a great afternoon. We highly recommend a visit.

We have attended 3 dinner events here and the chefs and staff are all top notch-focus is on seasonal vegetables from the Chef's garden served in an interesting way-it's a must try!

Twice we were lucky enough to have Jamie Simpson share the CVI great foods. Both days were prior to events but oh my, this ios the place that sends specialty organic vegetables to the best restaurants all over the world. Any amazing place.

We have eaten here twice. The first time was fabulous! The second time, ok. This is a very gourmet restaurant. They grow all their own veggies! And they can a lot of it! The carrot cake and burnt carrot sorbet was melt in your mouth good! But we felt the second time we were shorted with the meal. No salad and not dessert! But it's very unique and the servers were awesome!

Wonderful quality, wonderful presentation. A place owned by the family who farms the land. True farm to table for their micro veges. Great parade of celebrity chefs. Highly recommended for a special night.
