Marjorie Extends a Warm Welcome to Chef Dustin Calery!

Chef Dustin Calery has a penchant for local, farm fresh ingredients.

The comfort with which Marjorie Chef, Dustin Calery eased into his position is somewhat amazing.  When Vashon’s Sea Breeze Farm’s restaurant, La Boucherie recently closed, it seemed like fate, and a bit of luck brought Dustin to Marjorie.

The marriage of Marjorie’s kitchen and Pacific Crest Farm’s amazing produce is a happy one!

The menu at Marjorie shines under the guidance of Dustin.  Gearing up for warmer weather, there are lovely seafood options, as well as plenty of fresh vegetables and lighter dishes.

Dustin is certainly impressive on many levels.  Having previously owned Empire Ice Cream (a local ice creamery, formerly sold at local farmer’s markets showcasing expected and unusual flavors of handcrafted Ice Cream), he’s brought a welcome oversight to Marjorie’s commitment to making our own Ice Cream and Sorbet.

Dustin quickly started a few “projects”, which created quite an excitement about things to come, given the start of what looks to be a near perfect local produce season on the horizon.

Sweet and beautiful baby turnips from Pacific Crest Farms inspire Dustin’s kitchen crew to create new dishes.

Pacific Crest Farms Spring Lettuces are so crisp, fresh and full of flavor, Chef Dustin Calery favors a presentation that showcases the quality of the produce.

Marjorie’s loyal and highly regarded clientele look forward to what Chef Dustin Calery will be doing with his Kimchi project…
