Well being for body & soul, the cuisine at the Resort is both down‑to‑earth and cosmopolitan. We try to buy most of our food from local certified producers and we grow our own organic herbs and our Executive Chef Cameron Dafoe carefully prepares delicious gourmet meals every day, using only the finest and freshest ingredients. His creations are a delight for every taste and dietary needs. Fresh, healthy and delicious! Cam is a Red Seal chef who graduated from The International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Vancouver at the top of his class. He has dedicated his professional career to creating outstanding dishes in top hotels, casinos and restaurants where he has showcased his ability to pair the perfect holiday with the perfect plate.
