The wood-fired oven is the center piece of the Bistro. It was hand-built by traveling mason, Malcolm Chase, with lots of help from Gabriel, Jessica, Jim (Gabriel’s dad), their friends and members of the Sequim community. At cooking temperatures of 650-750 degrees the oven sears meats and seals in the flavors of vegetables and breads.
Al fresco dinning (weather permitting) is another feature of the Alder Wood Bistro. The courtyard, designed by Suzi (Gabriel’s mom), has been described as a “living” garden where vegetables, herbs and flowers share the same area. The patio is set between two cherry trees and maize-colored sails provide shade for the dinners. Beverly Hoffman of the Sequim Gazette depicts the garden as “magical” and concludes “so is the food”.
Indeed, it is the food that is unparalleled. Owing to the skill and experience of chef Gabriel, as well as, the supply of fresh, organic ingredients form over 20 local growers and purveyors, the Alder Wood Bistro is able to deliver an array of tantalizing, gastronomic fare.
