Description: From Scratch – A Mountain Kitchen is a market bistro located in Fairmont Hot Springs, BC that is a haven for food lovers offering delicious, fresh and seasonal products to dine in, take out or shop away. Our approach to this business is to avoid ordinary and average. We create joy and fun in all aspects of the business from how the in-house product line is presented to menu design to customer service level. We are creating items we love hoping we are not alone in our taste! We also oversee outside catering, cooking classes, launching a retail product line and participate in the local Farmer's Market. From Scratch – A Mountain Kitchen is a unique space consisting of a production kitchen, 30 seat bistro and retail area as well as an outdoor patio for seating to enjoy the Purcell mountain views. The touch and feel of the space is designed with modern rustic elements. We believe in low food miles supporting a local food network by creating positive relationships with local farmers and growers. Many of our ingredients are seasonal being sourced throughout British Columbia and Alberta. The creation of delicious products also requires passion and quality ingredients. Our Chefs use the finest ingredients combined with simple techniques to bring out the natural flavours of seasonal foods. We have an appreciation for the difference FRESH makes and incorporate this value into the work of the kitchen. As many of the ingredients are locally grown, harvested and raised, the concept of Farm to Fork is regularly featured on our menu. Fresh, local, seasonal with some organic ingredients where it makes sense; ready to cook meals and soups, in-house menu featuring a wood burning oven, fresh baked bread and other delights, a great cup of coffee and a small feature wine/beer list the accompanies our in-house menu.

From Scratch opened in the spring in our mountain village, we have been constant guests since. Love everthing from the breakfast "Eggs Benny" to the constantly changing specials in the evening. Try the ribs. They are great. If a curry is on, try that as well. In the shop look for the bacon jam. It is a nice addition to your own home cooking.

We were driving from Crawford Bay to Canmore along Hwy 95 and stumbled upon "from scratch".
The food was very tasty, the bread was fresh baked and the staff was very friendly. We bought a loaf of cinnamon roll bread to take with us and we enjoyed it in subsequent days on our trip.
It's definitely a place to stop on your trip or, if you're staying in the area, to enjoy a meal.

We had the pleasure of eating at this new restaurant twice while in Fairmont. Both times were delicious & unique. The menu is full of unique fresh tasting items. The restaurant is clean & upbeat.

The chef/owner/staff are very friendly & helpful. They were very accommodating in assisting us with questions we had regarding gluten free pizza. We ordered a gluten free pizza to bring back to Edmonton for our pregnant daughter who had been craving good GF wood fired oven pizza. This one did not disappoint! It was delicious (Chorizo, spinach, roast garlic, & olives) they even substituted (for a small cost) goat cheese to accommodate a dairy sensitivity.

We will definitely eat here again next summer when we are back in the area!

Found a delicious stone baked pizza here the first night we were in Fairmont. It was just right for taking back to the condo and consuming with our wine on the balcony as we don't drink and drive. Our second experience was with their hummus which was a very generous portion. It was served with pita chips instead of soft pita bread which is much better for eating hummus as it should be eaten....with three fingers.
