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.

Had a fantastic meal here with 6 people in Dec 2012. What an absolute gem of a place. You seat yourself and then go up and place your order. The menu has lots to choose from and there are a bunch of specials as well. Good selection of wines and local beers as well. Had a couple of pizzas, a veggie sandwich (which was fantastic), soup, wine, beer, fizzy water for the table, and some beautiful desserts for under $90 for 6 of us. Everything was well presented, great quality and all tasted wonderful - especially the cheesecake and lemon tart.The people who run it are very nice and the service was excellent. Will be back every time we're in or going through Fairmont.

Ordered take away pizza tonight and was pleasantly surprised. The pizza was ready for pick up at the exact time they said it would be. The pizza was thin crust and cooked in a wood fire oven. The edges were crispy and tastefully complemented by fresh sauce that was rich and tomato-y. Toppings were paired well. We had one with sausage, roasted garlic (full cloves), spinach and olives. My two and four year old devoured this pizza! Coming from a big city with pizza joints galore, you wouldn't expect to find quality pizza like this place in FHS. We will definitely be back for more pizza and to try other yum stuff on the 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.
