Our Food Philosophy

Here in the kitchen of Churchill House Inn, our philosophy on food is simple: fresh and natural.  We create our breakfasts and four-course dinners from scratch using wholesome ingredients and traditional methods: unbleached flour stone milled in Vermont and locally grown vegetables, including some from Olya’s own organic garden at the Inn.  In season, you may enjoy with dinner vegetables that were ripening on the vine that same morning.  We avoid using foods that have been genetically engineered or chemically processed.  Using the purest ingredients in recipes handed down from previous innkeepers and our own diverse families, as well as dishes from some of today’s trends, produces delectable, unpretentious meals that are sure to delight.  The Churchill House Inn is a proud participating member of the Vermont Fresh Network.

Kitchen staff have been certified in proper food preparation techniques by ServSafe, earning a 100% score on the certification exam.

Hungry for a little pearl of Vermont food wisdom as social commentary?

To foreigners, a Yankee is an American.

To Americans, a Yankee is a Northerner.

To Northerners, a Yankee a New Englander.

To New Englanders, a Yankee is a Vermonter.

And in Vermont, a Yankee is somebody who eats pie for breakfast.
