Originally from Tsimshian Okanagon, Hartley Bay, Rachel comes from a long career of cooking. Previously from the Malahat Chalet she brings with her a wealth of knowledge of traditional cooking and some new favourites including her 5th generation Bannock recipe.
Her role at Songhees has grown a great deal since she has started (one of the original team members), and now as Kitchen Supervisor you will find Rachel cooking for the events and the gallery café where she uses her knowledge and creativity to bring amazing dishes to the menu. She also runs many of our kitchen programs ensuring only the freshest and local products are used. Her passion for cooking and learning is undeniable and you can taste in the delicious food she cooks. Her creativity doesn’t stop at the kitchen, in her time away from work she loves to write, read and draw.
