Welcome to the Olympic Culinary Loop

Experience Olympic Coast Cuisine – all within reach of Highway 101 in Washington State!

Find destinations featuring fresh and delicious culinary treats, chef-quality local recipes and culinary news, as well as information and assistance.

The Olympic Culinary Loop is a group of people who grow, harvest, catch and ultimately serve you the Peninsula’s bounty that we call Olympic Coast Cuisine. Experiencing all that’s local is an adventure, and for many a first time experience.

We invite you to share our food and our communities. The Peninsula is a mosaic of past and present: a rich Native American heritage, pioneer farm families and a new community of young farmers who want to put down roots, work the land and preserve it for the future – our children.

Olympic Coast Cuisine reflects the diverse microclimates, coastal proximity and Native American heritage that characterize the Olympic Peninsula. The combination of sustainable locally-grown and foraged fruits, vegetables, herbs and berries, locally hunted game, bountiful local sea fare, and handcrafted local wines offers farm to table experiences that instill a unique sense of place. Prepared with reverence to the local history and culture, fresh Olympic Coast Cuisine is best enjoyed amid the beautiful scenery that surrounds the Olympic Peninsula loop.
