Executive Chef Dennis Peckham

The Sequoia Company of Restaurants is thrilled to welcome Dennis Peckham as the new Executive Chef at Seasons in the Park, just in time for the completion of their restaurant renovations and exciting menu changes.

Dennis’ impressive resume includes formal training at a number of renowned fine dining establishments, including Lumiere and West here in Vancouver, French Laundry in California, and Alinea in Chicago.

After establishing himself as a talented and promising chef, Dennis took on Executive Chef roles at Hart House Restaurant, Coast Restaurant, and most recently he opened and led the kitchen in Vancouver’s newest steak house, Black & Blue.

Dennis is looking forward to working in the newly renovated and improved kitchen at Seasons in the Park, with their strong, experienced team of chefs.

As a natural leader in the culinary field, Dennis steps into his role as Executive Chef with ease and enthusiasm, and is warmly welcomed by his team of sous chefs and managers at Seasons in the Park.

My wife and I went for our anniversary dinner and were seated at a table with a view second to none.
The service staff were friendly and knowledgable and though attentive, not smothering.
The view! :

The wine list is ample and the menu items fresh and lively with flavors.
Each plate that we had was the right balance of flavor, acidity and balance.
Our finish:

Paradise Donair


Happy Thursday….
Ever get a craving for the perfect Donair ? swing by Paradise Donair
723 12 Street, New Westminster
Chicken, lamb, beef it doesn’t matter they all taste wow
The magic is obviously in the marinade and from heart and soul as only that type of wow flavor can come from.
Can you find cheaper, of course…. But always weigh quality over price…. The value is still great and they offer discounts to students.
I usually get the mixed Donair salad… Always fresh and sooooo good.

Be sure to ask for both the hot sauce and the sweet sauce mixed and get ready for a flavor explosion in your mouth!

Sugar Factory Restaurant- Las Vegas


Sugar Factory Restaurant- Las Vegas.

Sugar Factory Restaurant- Las Vegas


Happy Tuesday all…..
Wether your a kid or a “big kid” you will want to try the still fairly new Sugar Factory Restaurant located in the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.
Below is an excerpt from their website…more comments follow from me!

SUGAR FACTORY AMERICAN BRASSERIE
Sugar Factory American Brasserie takes guests on a breathtaking, visually-inspiring journey from beginning to end. Our 30,000 square-foot space in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip offers one-of-a-kind culinary experiences in our expansive dining room, flagship Sugar Factory retail store, decadent Chocolate Lounge and more as it serves up delicious cuisine and desserts to patrons 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The mouthwatering menu at Sugar Factory American Brasserie has been handcrafted by a team of world-class chefs, including Executive Chef Michael Sellmann and Chef and Restaurateur Bryan Ogden, and features perfectly executed classics such as pizzas, burgers, pastas, salads, steaks, seafood, sandwiches and more. Breakfast options are served all day including fluffy waffles, omelets, crepes and specialty egg dishes. Sugar Factory American Brasserie also has an over-the-top dessert menu featuring classic sweet treats and signature selections.

The Chocolate Lounge, a crown jewel in the colossal compound, acts as an intimate alcove set to deliver the ultimate experience to both novice and veteran chocolate connoisseurs with a vast selection of chocolate fondue options, accompanied by wine, champagne and liquor pairings.

Sugar Factory American Brasserie serves up decadent, indulgent and tasty fare that is sure to fill every belly and fulfill any sweet tooth. Spend an evening at the Las Vegas Strip’s sweetest spot – it promises to be an unforgettable culinary delight.

First let me say that this isn’t one of the “fad” restaurants resting on the laurels of its name with so so food….. This is a wonderment of great foods, great deserts and an awesome Chocolate Lounge with delectable adult treats including some wow Chocolate libations…….
After you are done with dinner and dare tell some sweet treats you can also take a stroll through the candy store and see some unique spins on candy treats with some added bling and celebrity play ups……
If you are lucky you are very apt to run into a celebrity enjoying the same treats that you are!
Try this out for Breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner or if you must simply must just have A wow dessert

Gem in White Rock- 5 Doors Down


A beautiful Saturday afternoon and looking for a patio or at the very least a great view?
Head on down to White Rock beach and try out 5 Doors Down for some fantastic eats and some views you can’t beat!

five doors down website
This dish is a must try and once you open the flavor gates to your taste buds and hearts these delectable flavors won’t disappoint.
‘Famous’ Bruschetta
gorgonzola basted, pesto rub, house dried roma tomato drizzle, balsamic reduction

They have great seafood, good salads and greens, a nice selection of wine……and did I mention the view?
Be sure to try the Digby scallops or prawn appetizer….. I also had the Haida candied salmon salad with grilled mushrooms, beats, pea sprouts and lots of other tasty treats with a nice light dressing.

Five doors down? From what?……..it’s actually 5 doors down from its sister restaurant Cielos….another great spot for tapas and great sipping.
