The Orchard House Gourmet Kitchen is led by Ms. Carmelina Vincelli. With Ms. Carmie’s extensive experience helping and managing catering centers and school cafeterias with the English Montreal School Board, our Gourmet Kitchen could not be in better hands!
Representative of the slow food movement, our purpose-built kitchen moves away from preserved foods and strives for a more traditional cuisine leaning on local farmers, sustainable fishing sources, hormone-free meat, seasonal foods and an overall nutritious diet. Our seasonal menu, always nut-free, is organic when possible, whole wheat, highly restricted in added sugar and salt, and validated by a dietician. Naturally, individual dietary allergies are taken into account.
Our Gourmet Kitchen further enhances the children’s educational experience at Orchard House:
By finally welcoming the Gourmet Kitchen into Orchard House, we are now fully responsible of further nourishing the children’s bodies and minds through wholesome, nutritious meals and snacks.
