RauDZ Creative Concepts are thrilled to announce that the culinary team at Terrafina at Hester Creek by RauDZ will be led by Chef James Hanna. Chef Hanna is moving from his role as Chef de Cuisine at RauDZ Creative Concepts Ltd, to Terrafina.
James has a long history of working with Chef Butters of RauDZ Creative Concepts Ltd., operators of Terrafina at Hester Creek by RauDZ. Following his apprenticeship in White Rock, BC he was sous chef for Fresco becoming Chef de Cuisine when Fresco morphed into the more fine casual dining RauDZ Regional Table. He then departed to eat and cook his way across the country. Chef Hanna has also been an integral part of 7 culinary teams that have competed in Gold Medal Plates. In early 2018 he returned to RauDZ from Newfoundland after a number of years honing his skills at other restaurants including Vancouver’s top Italian restaurant Villa Del Lupo. James has always had a passion and skill for Italian cuisine and is excited to lead the Italian focused menu and culinary team at Terrafina for the upcoming 2019 season.
A familiar face from 2018, Kayleigh Macmillan will be joining us as Restaurant Manager. Kayleigh excelled as Restaurant Supervisor last year assisting Wes Hunter with the daily operations and her enthusiastic demeanor paired with professionalism is appreciated by both her service team and guests.
Terrafina at Hester Creek by RauDZ will open for the 2019 season on Wednesday, February 13.
