Hart House Welcomes New Executive Chef Alana Peckham
Hart House at Deer Lake is pleased to announce that Alana Peckham has joined the restaurant as Executive Chef. Chef Peckham has already made her mark on the cuisine at the venerable Burnaby landmark by introducing fresh new lunch, brunch, and dinner menus.
Chef Peckham’s unique cooking style is influenced both by her training in French culinary techniques and her heritage as a Chinese Canadian. Above all, however, she is devoted to using fresh and local ingredients. She is excited about joining the team at Hart House, which is known for tremendous dining in the main dining room and hosting outstanding functions for corporations and family celebrations throughout the grounds. She will continue to nurture their relationships with local suppliers and looks forward to accessing the site herb garden for her menu.
The new menus showcase Chef Peckham’s creative talents and the abundance of premium ingredients available locally. The brunch menu includes Banana Buttermilk Pancakes, Duck Leg Confit, Goat Cheese & Mushroom Omelet. Lunch options range from Salt Spring Island Mussels to the AAA Beef Burger & Fries to the Knuckle Sandwich (fresh lobster knuckles provide the punch in this recipe). The dinner menu offers such dishes as Steelhead Salmon, Fraser Valley Duck Breast, Asparagus Tagliatelle, and Grilled Lamb Sirloin. View the complete menu listing.
Guests are welcome to enjoy the new menu items on Hart House’s comfortable patio overlooking Deer Lake. Make plans to visit soon!
