Aspiring chefs are invited to the Naramata Inn for the Season of Culinary this October.

The first item on the menu is The Future is Female. Two of the chefs – Minette Lotz and Stacy Johnston – recently appeared in an A&W’s commercial. The other chefs teaching the course are Liz Stevenson and Emily Walker.

Next up is Legends and Apprentices, taught by Michel Jacob, Rob Feenie and Ned Bell. Bell is a co-owner of the Inn.

“Michel Jacob has been leading Vancouver's most acclaimed French fine-dining restaurant, Le Crocodile, for 38-years,” reads a description on the Naramata Inn website.

“He has set a standard for excellence, deep-rooted technique, commitment and quality that has influenced many an up-and-coming-chef. Several of whom have gone on to achieve incredible heights in their own careers while never forgetting the grounding, life-lessons of their mentor and friend.”

“His vision began playing out in 1985, and Bishop's restaurant delighted guests, raised standards, and bred talent for 36 years with unparalleled service and an unrelenting commitment to supporting local, organic and seasonal food."
