First Steps of a New Culinary Journey

Chef Kevin McKenna has decided to venture out, launching a project of his own. We are proud of the great work we have accomplished together at Viamede Resort and wish him all the best.

In the interim we welcome Jay Nutt as Executive Chef. Jay is a long-standing friend of the resort and the recently retired chef and former owner of Nuttshell Next Door Café. Jay has cooked in hotels and resorts across Canada, focusing on local foods and building community partnerships. He is also a cookbook author and food columnist, writing with his wife Jenn.

Viamede Resort will stay the course with our focus on incredible forest-to-table cuisine and Jay’s demonstrated commitment to local foods will be showcased here.

In the coming months, Viamede will hire a new chef for the long term who will build on our renowned forest to table philosophy. We are looking forward to what 2017 will bring!
