Born in West Sussex in the South Downs of England, Alice Savage has had a passion for cooking since she was young. Brought up cooking brownies and flapjacks after Sunday afternoon walks in the countryside, she followed her passion for food and trained at the Tante Marie, Cordon Bleu Cookery School, near London, England.
After a season cooking at a private ski chalet in Meribel, France, Alice Studied Hotel and Catering Management at Nottingham Trent University. She went on to work for two Relais Chateaux hotels, Gravetye Manor in the south of England, and Meadowood in the Napa Valley, where she learned about the compatibility of food, wine and the value of outstanding customer service.

She has worked on film sets, in private homes, ski chalets and in hotels and wine bars around the world. Her education also includes an advanced certificate with the Wines and Spirits Educational Trust.
She now lives in Paradise Valley near Squamish, BC and has worked in and around Whistler since 1999. She was the chef in two exclusive chalets in Whistler’s Nicklaus North, and afterwards worked at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler for a number of years. Alice furthered her education in Holistic Nutrition at the Canadian School of Nutrition and graduated as an R.H.N. ( Registered Holistic Nutritionist ) in August 2014.
Alice’s travels and experiences around the world inspire her cooking. “My specialty is cooking with whole foods, nutritionally dense and delicious. I adore cooking and am constantly trying new recipes. It is my true passion, I want to share my knowledge with my clients, I am in my element in the kitchen.”
