Coastal Cuisine at Nimmo Bay
Food is an integral part of the guest experience at Nimmo Bay. Within this ecologically significant environment, guests seek an intimate journey in one of the largest remaining intact temperate rainforests. Our sustainably minded and environmentally conscious culinary philosophy is focused around the pristine landscapes of coastal British Columbia.
Wild experiences deeply rooted and reflected in place.
Our modern Pacific Northwest menu emphasizes clean, fresh flavours based on locally caught seafood, foraged plants, pasture-raised B.C. meats, and produce carefully sourced from selected Certified Organic farmers.
Our cuisine is a reflection of not only ‘where we are’ geographically but also ‘when we are’ seasonally. Local ingredients of the Broughton Archipelago, wild Pacific salmon, halibut, spot prawns, Dungeness crab, albacore tuna and a plethora of wild plants, have short seasons. At Nimmo Bay, they find a place on our menu only at the peak of their season before giving way to components that reflect the next chapter in this region’s life cycle.
We serve the shoots of indigenous plants in the spring before returning to these same plants for flowers, berries, leaves, and roots as the year progresses. Our kitchen garden furnishes us with exceptional ingredients harvested within sight of the dining room.
