We are thrilled to welcome Chef Patti Ross as this year’s Flavour of Chocolate Dessert Chef.
“My aspirations to become a chef started at a young age while cooking with my grandmother in her kitchen on the farm. As my life progressed, I switched gears and went into Tourism at North Island College, however, culinary arts kept calling me back to the kitchen. In 2000, I received my Red Seal. Since then I have made numerous guest appearances in television and radio.”
“A few of the coveted gourmet restaurants I’ve been fortunate enough to work at are the Salmon House On The Hill in West Vancouver for the Relais & Chateaux Hotels. My culinary career has taken me to many places but it has brought me back to the Island. My commitment to local, sustainable foods and the people has led me back to the Roost where the mandate ties into my own philosophy of health living.”
Chef Patti Ross’ Dessert Menu is as follows:
- Milk Chocolate Pistachio Semifreddo on Dark Chocolate Quinoa Cake with Raspberry Gelée
Chef Patti’s Spirit Pairing is with Roost Winery, Bistro & Farm Bakery
