World-Class Cuisine | Freshly farmed at Siwash Lake

At Siwash Lake, we are famous for exquisite pasture-to-plate cuisine with a daily set menu that is in keeping with what's fresh and seasonal; first and foremost from what is farmed organically on our ranch, or available locally.

Your food and wine experiences here will reflect the bounty of British Columbia's flavours and our lodge's natural surroundings, while offering you a real taste of this 'off-grid' wilderness destination.


Scratch Cooking

Siwash Lake food is prepared fresh from scratch each day in our open-plan country kitchen in the main ranch house, using the very best ingredients.

Our chefs make wonderful hand cranked pastas, often featuring ranch grown vegetables. Ice creams and sorbets from wild berries are a house specialty.

Inspired by Nature

Imagine fresh-baked sourdough or Indigenous inspired bannock served with rose petal jelly. A salad that is garnished with house-made pickles and candied spruce tips.

Have you ever tried cattail hearts? Delicious... like white asparagus! You'll love our home-made cheeses and preserves made from wild berries.

Organic & Ranch raised

Whenever possible we incorporate home grown, ranch raised food — beef and pork, hen's eggs, fireweed honey, heirloom tomatoes, and field greens for your salads — the former from our happy, free-range ranch animals, and the latter from our bee hives, green house, 2-acre ranch garden, and the wild pastures beyond.

Beauty in Nature

We enrich your dining experience with edible flowers, fruit and herbs that are grown in our ranch garden or foraged from the wilds. Showcasing and celebrating the beauty in nature is at the heart of the culinary realm at Siwash Lake.

And of course, everything tastes better in the great outdoors! There is nothing finer for wetting one's appetite than abundant fresh air and exercise, which you will have plenty of during a day of adventure at Siwash Lake. 

We are pleased to satisfy special dietary needs, including gluten and lactose-free, and will happily prepare vegan and vegetarian dishes when notified in advance. Meals can be simplified for young children.
