Let’s start at the very beginning. Delivering Cedarbrook’s culinary vision of presenting Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar diners and Cedarbrook Lodge banquet and catering social and business guests the highly valued farm-to-table experience, means beginning at the source. The farm. The ranch. The stream.
It is here where the passion for the product itself – as it grows, as it is cultivated, as it is fed, as it is nurtured – first matters. As well as the environment in which it matures under the watchful and caring eyes of equally responsible, equally dedicated and devoted resource partners.
Small local Washington state farms, artisans, ranchers and fishermen are carefully chosen for their commitment to offer to Cedarbrook Lodge hand-selected superior products direct from their fields, trees, streams or pastures. No middle man.
Cedarbrook’s food and beverage vendor partners are similarly quality-driven devotees of responsible, sustainable, fair-trade practices. The lodge’s culinary team does business only with those who value as highly as do they – food’s tradition and its future.
Today’s diners live in an age where the majority of hotel restaurant and banquet operations focus on high productivity and low food cost (often resulting in the purchase of mass-produced, packaged, stored, shipped and dare we say often frozen food items). At Cedarbrook, the food and beverage team provides quality products with thoughtful preparation and appealing presentation. And doing so to the delight of the diners while being socially responsible yet fiscally wise.
