A taste of Oregon and Washington: Local & sustainable all the way
We are proud to provision our ships in perfect harmony with the terrain we explore. As you follow these grand rivers, our menus follow the flow of the seasons, providing you with the freshest, most local fare possible. Our dedicated team has crafted a culinary program that raises the bar on locality, sustainability, and seasonality. The goal of our approach is to cross-utilize ingredients from a 150-mile radius, manage our fisheries, and provision sustainable products with minimal processing and no added hormones or antibiotics. Look forward to tasting the region’s very soil, air, and water in the form of delicious culinary opportunities like these:
Salmon straight from the river
Weekly updates on salmon runs sent by our supplier help us map out our menu. Dine on King (chinook) and Coho salmon fished directly from the Columbia and, depending on time of year, from surrounding tributaries like the Cowlitz, Kalama and Lewis rivers.
A special delivery in Portland brings us the best of the hunt from fields and forests within a 50-mile radius, changing with the seasons and availability.
Upcycling-sustained meat and beer
New to our vendor list, Fulton Farms and Oregon Natural Meats upcycle over 20 million pounds of brewer’s grain from Ninkasi Brewery each year. Normally disposed of in landfills, this grain now feeds the cattle from which they produce ground beef. Enjoy both their meat and beer on board.
We’ve cultivated deep relationships in the region allowing our chefs to handpick produce from places like Moscow Farmers Market, Drapers Girl Farm, Pullman Farmers Market and Wilson Banner Ranch where we buy local apples, multiple types of squash, hackberries, pears, and fresh apple cider. Customized produce deliveries from Duck Delivery bring additional seasonal delicacies aboard.
Local wine and beer
Wines served aboard represent the various growing areas and grape varieties which embody the region’s best—including vintners like Sokol Blosser whom we have worked directly with for eight years. Located on 85 acres of organic estate in the Willamette Valley, this family-owned and -run winery is committed to sustainable practices, from reducing water and energy usage to maintaining beehives that contribute to the bee population. Enjoy their wines by the glass or the bottle at dinner and Recap each evening. And for beer aficionados aboard we also serve an array of the region’s best craft brews like Full Sail or Deschutes.
