Description

Your 4-hour event includes: A narrated Cruise to Blake Island, steamed clam appetizers upon arrival, a salmon buffet, Native American-inspired dance show, exploration time on the island and a return cruise!

2014 Tillicum Village Menu:

Steamed Clams in Nectar
As you disembark the boat, join other guests for a welcoming mug of steamed clams in broth with a touch of butter and onions — delicious! As is tradition at Tillicum, the used shells are crushed under foot to create the beautiful pathway.

Traditional Alder Baked Salmon
Savor this centuries-old treat! This salmon, baked around alder wood fires on cedar stakes, is unlike anything you have ever tasted. Taking approximately one hour to bake slowly to perfection, the salmon retains moisture and takes on a wonderful mild flavor unique to this style of cooking. Served with signature Juniper Berry Seasoning.

Signature Northwest Stew
This thick meaty stew consisting of venison, beef and bison is full of flavors married together in a rich veal stock, combined with root vegetables and potatoes for a mouth-watering dish.

Wild Grain Harvest Rice
Try this wonderful combination of wild and regular rice, cooked to perfection with onions, garlic and a fragrant vegetable stock.

Warm Whole Grain Tillicum Bread
This rich, dark, slightly-sweet bread is made with a hint of molasses, served warm with butter. So popular, in fact, you can even purchase loaves to take home.

Field Greens Salad
Seasonal greens, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, Oregon blue cheese, with stone ground rosemary dressing or raspberry vinaigrette served on the side.

Polenta With Wild Mushroom Ragout
A collection of wild Northwest mushrooms stewed with white wine and herbs, served over creamy polenta.

Fresh Fruit Salad
Assorted Melons, Grapes, Strawberries and Pineapple, served with a Strawberry Honey Dipping Sauce

Northwest Dessert Treat
Individual rustic apple pie, served room temperature.

Please note: Vegan entrees are available with advance request. Menu is subject to change without notice.

Coffee and tea service is provided with your meal at Tillicum Village.

You are advised to wear layers, as the weather can be chilly on the water and island.
