It was the 4th of July in 1977 when Dick and Carol Skare opened up the Cookery Restaurant in Fish Creek. In the last 44 years the community has watched the beloved restaurant grow from a small cottage to the full restaurant with wine bar and lodging which they offer today. Last week, owners Dick and Carol announced their plans to retire and they are selling the property. The Cookery will sadly be closing on Monday May 31st. A new restaurant will be moving into that space, but they will not be sharing informtion on the new establishment until after the sale is final. The Cookery is open yet until next Monday the 31st, so you have until then to still stop in and enjoy a meal at the Cookery.
