If there is one thing that guests always comment on during, or after, a stay at The Crossing, it’s always how great the food is! We don’t often toot our own horn but we have to agree with everyone on this! There is absolutely no question about who is responsible for the consistent, quality results that are served pipping hot through the swing door into the dining room…Chef Doug and his talented team. And, today we are happy to share that we have a new member of The Crossing family who is helping Chef Doug continue these standards of excellence, and that is Sous Chef Prasad Padte.
Settling right in with the rest of the team, Prasad has been enjoying his time at The Crossing. We’re loving getting to know him and his family and wanted you to as well. Welcome to the family Prasad, we are happy you are here!
Read on below for Prasad’s bio which you can also find in the “Your Hosts” section of the website which features all of our full-time staff….
“I was expecting a modern banquet facility when I first visited The Crossing, but instead I found a wonderful cottage filled with antiques,warmth and a home like atmosphere. While walking around the property I came across the river side fire-pit which left me speechless.”
Prasad grew up in Bombay and gained his culinary knowledge in France and the UK working with some fabulous Chefs who believed in the ‘farm to table’ concept. Prasad feels that, “the great thing about good food, you don’t have to take mediocre ingredients & fancy them up. What I like about The Crossing kitchen is that everything is made in-house, you just get fresh ingredients and let the flavors talk for themselves.”
Five years ago, Prasad and his wife Shilpa, immigrated to Canada and made Calgary their home. They love travelling and learning about new cultures and cuisine, spending their days off exploring this beautiful province and country.
