Described as a “veg-lover who can crank out joyful-tear-inducing fried chicken”, Carlson has wowed diners, won the respect of her industry and blazed a trail in a career that has spanned celebrated B.C. restaurants like C Restaurant, Sooke Harbour House and Bishop’s before creating her own exceptional eateries in HarvestBurdock + Co. and Bar Gobo.

Carlson’s specialty is celebrating a taste of place – the Canadian Pacific Northwest. She has long had a passion for cooking the best of local, seasonal and regional ingredients sourced from farmers, fishers, artisans and suppliers who care deeply about their craft. his philosophy tightly aligns with that of the Naramata Inn and we are so excited to team up her talent with our powerhouse team of culinary leaders.
