Bailli Regional Message | March 2021

Dear Fellow Chaîne Members,

I am proud to share with everyone that we safely executed our first dinner of 2021 at the Yellow Door Bistro at Hotel Arts last Friday evening. Bailli Provincial Honoraire, Mark Wilson and Mâitre Rôtisseur Executive Chef Quinn Staple once again delivered an exceptional member experience. Although we were dining in a same household only, physically distanced manner I can assure you everyone had a wonderful night out. Thank you to the entire Hotel Arts team for being committed to working through the details of how to execute a dinner during a pandemic and with many governed restrictions. The camaraderie of the table is something that we all cherish, and we are so fortunate to have the Chaîne to bring us together for this unique purpose.

Our next event will be at The Guild hosted by Mâitre Sommelier Cam Pinkney. Cam is excited to host his first dinner on World Chaîne Day. I am so looking forward to this event.

The pandemic has led to the Post Hotel sadly recognizing they would not able to host us on the May long weekend, but have committed to hosting us on the May long weekend in 2022.

We are so very fortunate that the Jasper Park Lodge team, lead by Mâitre Hôtelier Marc Wawrin quickly stepped in to host us for the May long weekend 2021. Thank you, Marc and team.

The Guild DA April 24- World Chaîne Day
Jasper Park Lodge OM May 21
Jasper Park Lodge DA May 22
Alloy DA July 25
The Crossing at Ghost River-AGM August 28

I look forward to dining with you soon. It is my honour to serve as your Bailli.

Be safe and well,
