Our Chef, Ernst Joss was born and raised in Switzerland.  He apprenticed as a Chef and worked in Swiss hotels and restaurants.  He then moved to Canada and worked at many well-known hotels and restaurants including the Jasper Park Lodge, Jasper, AB, Le Beaujolais Restaurant, Banff, AB and the Coast Hotel at Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC.  He moved with his wife, Michelle and daughter, Cecilia to Vancouver Island, BC to escape the cold winters of Alberta.
