Chef Scott, and Lovely Eleni At The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel

How do you arrive at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel and expect to meet the Chef from the kitchen where your next meal will be prepared?  You know his mom; that is definitely a beginning.

We met Chef Scott, a gem and a handsome, friendly, gifted fellow and Eleni, an intelligent, gorgeous, sociable young lady on Thanksgiving Day. We had no idea it was Thanksgiving Day and we had no idea that our meeting was going to take us into the inner workings of this hotel’s fine dining. When Scott opened the door to the kitchens we were rendered immediately in awe of a sight that so very few get to see regarding their dining experience. The kitchen and all that it takes to jointly put together the meal we ate in the dining room after our tour will always be a highlighted life experience for us.

Here is Scott showing us some of the delicacies he is sending upstairs to the Gold floor.

We learned that the kitchens have a recycling program along with a composting project and have separate cans for each. Bravo!  We also noticed that Scott knew everyone by name and they showed him such respect in return. Scott is as very happy man who loves his job. When Scott was showing us his work environment he was so lit up and showed such admiration for all of the people who keep the behind the scenes of these kitchens in tip-top order.

Here are some photos of Scott’s colleagues at work.
