Chef Madden of our new restaurant "The Quilted Pig" at Rosario Resort enjoys putting fun twists on classic dishes as well as creating innovative new cuisine ideas using locally grown, seasonal foods. “Working closely with local farmers is paramount to my business. It insures that we are using goods produced organically, sustainably, safely and humanly. The products raised and grown in the San Juan Islands are world class in quality and we are lucky to have them available right next door.”
