A Day With Chef

For an enhanced culinary journey, elements on hollis offers a truly unique experience. Join our Chef early in the morning for breakfast in our Private Dining Room. We will create a dinner menu together and from there venture to the Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market to gather the elements needed for preparation. While at the market we will visit vendors and provide explanation on where products are grown and produced and on the theory of why these elements are chosen. Once all of our carefully selected items have been gathered we will return to the kitchen to begin preparation. Our Chef will go through tips and tricks and provide insight to professional cooking.

Once preparations have been completed our guests will be invited to SYKEA Spa for some pampering and preening and then return to the dining room to enjoy the fruits of their labour. Dinner will be paired with a selection of local wines, spirits and craft beer. After dinner guests will enjoy a night of hilarity at Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club, and then take the elevator home to retire in their Heavenly Bed.
