Primal Alchemy Seasonal Menus

We Let the Seasons Show Us What to Cook

To feed our passion for what we do, we constantly evolve our menus to reflect the best of the seasons.


We are blessed to live in a climate that gives us access to farm fresh ingredients year round.  Most are best at the peak of their season.  We know when that is and we create menus with that in mind to maximize flavor. Yum.


Here are some of our favorites, by season.  Take a look for some inspiration and we will customize a personal menu, just for your event.
