Christmas 2016 is in a very familiar setting. We joined Maitre Hotellier Elpi Marinakis-Jackson at the Wedgewood Hotel, Vancouver’s only Relais and Chateau Hotel. The Vancouver Bailliage welcomed Executive Chef Simon Bolsover to Vancouver as we enjoy his take on Christmas celebration.
Simon was born in Yorkshire, UK, and most recently worked as Executive Head Chef at Seaham Hall Hotel & Spa, a luxurious, 5-star boutique property near Durham, UK. Prior to Seaham Hall, he was Head Chef at the celebrated Great Fosters Hotel in Egham, Surrey. With Simon’s guidance and his drive for gastronomic excellence, this historic property achieved the highly coveted AA Three Rosettes.
Simon also spent four years at one of England’s finest hotels, Linthwaite House Hotel in the British Lake District, and felt privileged to have worked with the legendary Keith Floyd, award-winning chef, author and culinary celebrity. Simon embraced his time at this property, taking full advantage of the local and seasonal produce, and was awarded a third Rosette as recognition for his skill and creative talents.
