New: Handmade Ice Cream

I scream! We scream!

We all scream for ice cream!


I grew up churning handmade ice cream with my Dad on my Grandmother's 1905 wooden "Frozen King" ice cream 'machine'. I use the word machine loosely here since it seemed to me that it was my hard work to crank the thing that was the only 'machine' going on!


I still make ice cream with it for my family, but I've also invested in a brand new version of the same thing, all electric so I can save myself the work! All ice creams are handmade by me in small 6 quart batches.

Want to cool off in the heat wave? Don't have a freezer at your cabin up the Arm? Give one of my 1 pint Summer Sizzler Ice Creams a try today!

Double Chocolate S'mores

A rich chocolate ice cream swirled with fluffy marshmallows, graham crust crumbles, chocolate brownie and chocolate ganache.


Suggested Donation: $15 for a 1 pint container delivered to you 

Lemon Meringue Pie Smash

Oh so creamy English custard ice cream swirled with a rich handmade lemon curd, buttery shortbread crust crumbles and browned meringue pavlova chunks.


Suggested Donation: $15 for a 1 pint container delivered to you 

Summer Spumoni Splash

Half milk chocolate ice cream, half pistachio ice cream with hand roasted (by me) fresh pistachios, then candied, chopped and swirled throughout.

New: Vintage Mixes from Nan

Blast from the Past Breakfast Buckwheat Pancake Mix

Days gone by, this used to be a breakfast staple for many. I grew up on the best homemade buckwheat pancakes that just left you feeling so satisfied and happy. I've perfected my mix so you can make yours at home as well. Instructions are on each bag. Goes oh so well with this week's featured Woah Nelly Jelly Compote below.

One of my very favourite and so so easy to whip up staples in our home, you can now make in your own. There's nothing like the smell of this baking in your kitchen. Goes with anything you want. to serve it with, just make sure to slather it with a ton of lovely butter pretty please! Great toasted the next day too. : )

We Kindly Ask You
While Visiting for Get-Together


Areas of Access: Swell Kitchen Get-Togethers and Cook-Togethers take place at the front of our home. You are welcome to enjoy our dock, our dining deck and of course, our outhouses. Unless invited to, we ask that you refrain from hanging out in the seaside kitchen as space is limited and we need that to prepare great food for you and to also not walk up to our main house, to go inside or to go to the back forest to visit the chickens unless invited to.

Your Wake: We ask you to please be considerate of our neighbours and our docks and arrive at 5 knots or less.

Your Craft: We ask that you ideally bring a small craft such as a dingy or small skiff or something else that you can arrive and leave safely in that has your own fenders and lines for tie up. If you have a larger craft and are unable to accommodate your request please be in touch in advance to arrange a private Get-Together for your large vessel's group. We cannot accommodate a vessel for a private Get-Together that is over 36'. 

Drinking at Swell Kitchen: In order to protect everyone's safety while arriving, attending and departing, we require the responsible consumption of alcohol. We cannot entertain friends who arrive and appear to be under the influence because honestly it's not a "drunk-fest". We offer a family friendly environment for our friends, new and old, that is inclusive, kind, compassionate, chill and fun. 

Smoking: There is a strict no smoking policy at our home and property. If you wish to smoke, you could do that on your own vessel please.

Children & Pets: We are an inclusive family friendly home with pets but please know that we do not offer supervision of small children or pets. When considering to bring your dog or not, please consider if your dog is able to be safely social with other dogs before bringing them. We will of course make sure our dog patrons have nice fresh water and a forest for "business time".

Noise: We love our peace and quiet and so does our bay. We provide a calm environment for everyone to enjoy some jazz over a coffee or meal with us and our friends new and old. We turn into pumpkins pretty early so please respect our neighbours as you come, stay and go from Swell Kitchen.

Suggested Donations

All breads, unless specified, are made by Kate by hand at Swell Kitchen. All ingredients are top quality, often produced or grown ourselves at our home. A lot of work and love go into each bite at Swell Kitchen so we do ask for a suggested donation to cover our hard costs, our time and Kate's skill.

When deciding what your donation is, please take into account your distance from our location in Coldwell Beach. Gas is pricey these days!

At the moment, payment is via etransfer to but in future we will be moving to the square payment system.
