A Top-Notch Culinary Experience

Here at Stratton Mountain School, our goal is to provide a top-notch culinary experience that focuses on using quality ingredients prepared in a health-conscious manner by professional chefs.
Our menu incorporates homestyle comfort food favorites with a splash of ethnic-focused themed menus and a touch of young adult favorites. We also include seasonal and local items whenever possible. For breakfast, we offer a fresh fruit and yogurt bar, a selection of 9 kinds of cereal, a toast and bagel station along with traditional hot breakfast items. At lunch, we offer an expanded salad bar with over 26 items to create any combination while also catering to vegetarians and vegans.

Many of our items are made from scratch including hummus, pickled beets, in-house made pickles, kimchi, grain & legume salads, with many other rotating items every week. Scratch-made soups and our signature chili are offered daily. We frequently make freshly baked bread for dinner using unbromated and unbleached flour, made from our sourdough starter. Home-made cookies and other scratch-made desserts top it off, balanced with plenty of fresh fruit.

To address allergen concerns or restricted diets, we work with students individually to meet their specific needs while minimizing many common allergy-related ingredients in our cooking automatically. We do not use any nuts or nut oils in any of our food and incorporate a balance of healthy grains, legumes, fresh vegetables, and proteins. To reduce and sometimes eliminate gluten, a favorite ingredient of ours to use is garbanzo bean flour, which we use in many dishes. We carry a wide variety of gluten-free items that are always available. For those that have lactose related allergies, we also carry rice milk and almond milk as well as other ingredients.
