Team Building & Private Cooking Classes
With a minimum of 12 people you can book the Quince Studio for a private cooking class. Could be a corporate team building event, a family get together over the holidays or a friend's birthday party. Whatever the occasion is it's a great venue to socialize while making & eating great food with a glass of wine in hand. For more information go to our Quince Studio Private Booking Brochure

See our Truffled Potato Chips as featured in Vancouver Magazine. Pick up by the bag or order a platter - that way we will make them fresh for you. It is true what people say, ‘they are addictive!’

Boutique Shop, Café & Bakery

Quince Bread & Baked Goods. We bake bread daily for our lunch menu, please phone into the shop to see if your favourite was baked today.

Quince Cafe. Come in for lunch, or pop in for a cappuccino or a cup of Quince Chai Spiced Tea.

Home Made Jellies. All fruit and vegetables for these jellies are locally grown. In fact, most of the quince for this last batch of Quince Jelly came from Chef Andrea's own quince tree. Chef Andrea makes her jelly using the organic quinces she grows in her own garden. Beautiful with a natural peach colour, the jelly is delicious on scones and croissants, or as part of a marinade, or as an accompaniment for roast pork, goose or turkey.

And again this year is our artisinal Membrillo (Quince Paste), hand made in the traditional Spanish style. This spectacular product is made from the same pure, unsprayed local quince as our Quince Jelly. Perfect with cheese, charcuterie and meats. As Chef Andrea would say, "it's killer!"
