Patrick is my forever coach. Having worked with Patrick in luxury hotels and resorts for 5 years, he taught me the framework of running a successful kitchen and contributed to my promotion to Executive Chef.

Working with Patrick has allowed me to better understand the meat and potatoes of the food industry. He provided everything from giving me worst-case scenarios to buying equipment and sharing years of his wisdom in the food industry. I could count on Patrick to respond quickly to any concerns I had. He was very easy to talk to and encouraging, and working with him has been a pleasure.
Aaron Ashford, VibeOwner
I had the pleasure of working with Patrick for 6 years. His extensive food and beverage knowledge of both FOH and BOH operations helps Patrick to stand out from many leaders in the industry. With Patrick’s leadership, the management team became more structured and accountable. His ability to coach and communicate with his peers, team members, and guests allows him to set up team members for success and surpass guests' expectations. Patrick's entrepreneurial spirit and drive to deliver new programs and experiences are his strongest attributes.
Karsten Purbs, ChartwellRegional Vice President
Patrick would be our first choice for any restaurant project. His experience is highly credible, and his enthusiasm is exceptional. We contacted Patrick to help design and start a new bistro, and he took a blank space and designed an efficient restaurant and kitchen layout. He also provided extensive menu design options backed by long experience. Patrick had access to numerous resources and ensured expertise in every aspect of the restaurant planning. Patrick is hard to keep up with. I was surprised by the quick turnaround time on each design iteration. We highly recommend Patrick for all future projects!
Minh Vu & James Sorbo, Café RougeOwners
I met Patrick just after finishing cooking school and he convinced me to join the 3-year apprenticeship program at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. Under his leadership, those years shaped me to become the chef I am today. Patrick’s hard work, sense of humour, and desire to push boundaries made him a respected and trusted leader. He didn’t sit back and accept the status quo, but always wanted to try different concepts and ideas to keep things fresh and new.
