Supper in the Orchard featuring Chef Chris Torjusen

At Over the Hill Orchards and Winery, we’re delighted to offer our “Supper in the Orchard” series, in collaboration with local chefs, from May 3th through October 13th, 2024.

These culinary evenings feature a multi-course meal crafted predominantly from local and orchard-fresh ingredients. The evening kicks off on the outdoor patio, weather permitting, offering guests a chance to enjoy a drink with a view, followed by a cozy indoor setting by large picture windows for the supper.

The event includes a brief introduction to the orchard’s history by owners, Dean and Sylvia Kreutzer, and a presentation of the evening’s culinary talents. Guests are also treated to a 30-minute orchard tour between courses (weather permitting). The supper experience starts at 6:30 p.m. and concludes around 9 p.m.

 

Featured Chef: Chef Chris Torjusen

Chris, originally from Regina, developed his interest in food through his parents’ and grandmothers’ gardens, fostering a love for fresh produce from an early age. He began his culinary journey working at Danbrys (now crave) in high school before attending SIAST in Moose Jaw. After completing his education, he apprenticed under Chef Moe Matheiu at The Willow on Wascana.

Over the years, Chris gained experience working in various restaurants, including Ayden Kitchen and Bar in Saskatoon, where he honed his skills as a sous chef at Flip Eatery and Drink for three years. He later served as head chef at Malt City and Avenue Restaurant. Transitioning to fulfill his passion for butchery, Chris currently leads Lakeview Fine Foods.

His greatest passions lie in butchery, charcuterie, and Italian cuisine, particularly pasta. Chris is a vocal advocate for supporting local producers and frequently sources ingredients from farmers’ markets for his menu offerings.
