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.

I was staying at The Chalet in the Rockies and took my hosts, Anita and Randy, out for supper at FSAMK, and OMG was I in for a treat. The meal was absolutley incredible and the service was great and uber friendly. I will be sure to go back there again next year.

“So glad we discovered this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Finally - the Radium-Fairmont area has a decent restaurant! This will be our "go-to" place to eat from now on and we'll coordinate our travel time so that we can eat here. The hands-on owners were a pleasure to talk with, the service was very good and the food was excellent. We eagerly look forward to eating there again.

“We ate here 4 times in 3 days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

The quality , freshness , and flavor of the food produced here was fantastic. It completely made up for the fact that we did not want to use the pub at the resort as a dining spot any longer. The Owners are on site , and hands on. Love this place

We love to eat here! My family and I share a bunch of appys with wine. When the patio is open is the best. Great food, nothing like it in the area. As always the Pizzas are incredible, and hey have a gluten free option.

“All good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Loved the food and service. Excellent all made from scratch and delicious. Must go there! We're going back for dinner tonight. We tried lamb with organic carrots which was super delicious. They make their own bread, GF foods and a great zucchini and chocolate muffin. Service is extremely friendly Place is small, casual and has some outdoor seating.
