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.

We had dinner at From Scratch while staying at Fairmont Hot Springs this August. We share a full rack of ribs and a pizza, and i must say that although the pizza was fantastic and full of flavour the ribs were even better. They are slowly smoked cooked for around 6 hours, and are filled with a fantastic smoky flavour, and are fall off the bone tender. Oh, and the portions are LARGE! If I could give this restaurant more than 5 stars I would. The service is prompt and friendly and you cannot beat the food. I would highly recommend giving this restaurant a try. Although we did not have breakfast there, the breakfast menu looks equally awesome. Will try breakfast there the next time we visit.

So here is a worthy tip for anyone travelling around Invermere and Fairmont Hot Springs, BC in Summer . . BOOK if you want to dine out at a restaurant in town. . . After driving around for more than an hour trying to find a restaurant to dine, we kinda "gave -up" and landed at "From Scratch A Mountain Kitchen . . . They say that Hunger is the Best Cook . . but this Mountain Kitchen was a pleasant surprise. The service is really friendly, and the food is well prepared, authentic and tasty. If you enjoy good food, friendly service. . . not bothered by fancy decor, do give them a visit.

People eat early in this part of Canada. We arrived just before 8.00, a few minutes later the next person was turned away. The interior is very attractive and well laid out. The people are very friendly and ensure you are enjoying your meal. There's had been an event on and as a result there was a limited menu. We both had the spare ribs. Delicious. The meat fell of the bone and melted in your mouth.we also had beans and home made fries which just complimented the ribs. I would certainly go back.
Nice people, nice place and great food.

Nothing fancy, but very good home cooking. Good price point on the wine and very friendly, casual service.

When you peer into From Scratch, it looks like a plain, cafeteria style restaurant where you order from the cash and they bring you your food. BUT it is much more gourmet and high quality than it appears! They have authentic BC wine, homemade oven-fired pizza, delicious hummus (I recommend this!) and even spicy Caesars on the menu! The staff are friendly and attentive and the patio has a great view. Prices are reasonable also- which is a bonus! My husband and I each got a Caesar, an appetizer to share, and one entree each and it was under 55$! Walking distance from Sunchaser Resort Villas! Great for small groups, couples, and foodies!
