EAT! Dinners Series with Isabel Chung from Chateau Whistler at Chicha
Westcoast Peruvian flare alongside the mastermind behind Whistler’s only AAA/CAA Diamond-rated hotel restaurant.
Shelome Bouvette, owner and executive chef of Chicha Restaurant, is a veteran Vancouver chef who is known for the modern Peruvian flavours she’s introduced to the city. Like most children, Shelome’s first encounter and love for food developed while watching cartoons (Julia Child and The Galloping Gourmet). Through the years, Shelome advanced to cook on her own before training with many of the city’s cutting edge restaurants, such as Bin 942, Delilah’s, Allegro, Ballantine and Lolilita’s on Davie. As an industry veteran, Shelome fuses Peruvian flavours with fresh, local Westcoast ingredients to create a modern Peruvian cuisine full of vibrancy and ethnicity that is reflective of the diverse culinary scene in Vancouver.
Chef Isabel Chung is the executive chef at Fairmont Chateau Whistler and a lifelong learner in the culinary industry. Shortly after Isabel began her culinary career in Calgary, her exceptional talents in the kitchen quickly promoted her to work at acclaimed restaurants around the world. From The Wildflower Restaurant to the award-winning Mallard Lounge and the AAA Five Diamond Olympic Hotel in Seattle, Isabel is never short of creating the next “never-seen-before” contemporary cuisine featuring local ingredients. There’s no doubt that Isabel’s indisputable expertise and technique combined with Shelome’s unique Peruvian flavours will elevate your palate for fusion cuisine.
