Stollen – Let’s be honest: no one ever says fruitcake is their favourite holiday treat. But this is stollen—fruitcake’s bready, marzipan-stuffed, sugar-dusted German cousin. Their stollen comes from Swedish royalty via the now-closed Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver, and is produced by their friend Mark Burton at his new Best Kind Bakeshop using the original recipe.

Pastry Chef Gerhard Weitzel was passed the recipe by a friend of his who had previously worked for the King of Sweden. He started making the traditional Christmas bread himself at the Four Seasons back in 1991, producing up to 900 loaves per year, even after he had officially retired. With hotel closing, the recipe was passed to Mark, along with some of the original wooden frames used for baking.

Each 80-loaf batch calls for 6.6 pounds of butter for the marzipan centre alone and another 10 pounds of butter for the dough, along with golden raisins, 12 two bottles of rum, and the zest of 25 oranges and 25 lemons.
NOTE: This item is only available for local “Inn person” pick-up

Chef Ned Bell’s Lure Cookbook– Give a signed copy of Chef Ned Bell’s cookbook, Lure: Sustainable Seafood Recipes from the West Coast. Eating sustainable seafood is about opening your mind (and fridge) to a vast array of fish and shellfish that you might not have considered before—and the Pacific Coast is blessed with an abundance of wild species. With Lure, readers embark on a wild Pacific adventure and discover the benefits of healthy oils and rich nutrients that seafood delivers.

Signature Bath Robe – Wrap up and relax in the Inn’s signature waffle weave cotton robe, embroidered with the Inn’s icon. One size fits all.Signature Steak Knives – Dine in style with a set of four Naramata Inn Savoir Laguiole steak knives. These are the very same knives as we use in our restaurant, with stainless steel blades finished with black Teflon, and our icon laser-engraved into the handsome wenge wood handles.

Gift cards – Not everyone will be able to make it to Naramata Inn this holiday season, so give the gift of an “Inn Real Life” experience for 2022 tucked in with a few of the treats available online. Even better: spend over $500 in total on gift cards in the one transaction, and Naramata Inn will give the  gifted their own bonus gift card worth 10% of the total. Recipients will be thrilled to discover all Naramata and the Inn has to offer; history, beauty, and really good bread. If they haven’t heard, Naramata Inn is  a really great restaurant, with rooms. The best of the Okanagan’s natural bounty can be found right here in one place.
