Saskatoon, SK, February 20, 2014 – Radisson Hotel Saskatoon’s Executive Chef Trevor Robertson has been awarded the prestigious Chef of the Year title by the Canadian Culinary Federation of Chefs de Cuisine (CCFCC) Saskatoon Branch at the 2014 Chef’s Gala. The CCFCC also honoured Jasmine Goldsack, a talented associate on Chef Robertson’s culinary team at the AROMA Mediterranean Resto-Bar, with the Junior Chef of the Year title.
Every year, members of the CCFCC Saskatoon Branch vote and recognize a fellow colleague in the food service industry who has demonstrated leadership and professionalism in the trade. Serving his third term as the vice president of the CCFCC Saskatoon branch, Chef Robertson is dedicated to the education of both junior members and the upgrading skills of regular members for the advancement of Saskatoon’s food service industry.
“Having me and Jasmine recognized by some of the industry’s best in Saskatoon is very encouraging,” says Chef Robertson. “Our team at AROMA is always looking for ways to improve our culinary skills to ensure that our food is fresh and current. Being a hotel restaurant can be challenging, so making sure our team is constantly refining our skills gives us the competitive edge in this market.”
Chef Robertson’s recipe to maintaining a level of professionalism and knowledge in the trade is by participating in culinary competitions, which offer opportunities for the Chef to challenge himself to be creative as well as learn from other skilled chefs in Canada. He also recognizes the importance of mentoring talented associates like Jasmine to ensure continuous growth in the industry.
““We are extremely proud of Chef Robertson for his achievements,” says Steve Giblin, CEO of SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts. “Chef Robertson’s dedication to his cuisine reflects our organization’s high standards in offering top-notch food and beverage services to our guests.”
The AROMA Mediterranean Resto-Bar is an exciting, open-kitchen restaurant centered around a “wood-fired stone fired” oven. The restaurant serves local cuisine with a Mediterranean influence, including dishes like fresh-from-the-oven pizza, steak and pasta. AROMA is the perfect balance between casual and upscale dining.
