Beth Ross’ passion for cooking for others grew while she travelled abroad to Nanny for a small family in the market town of Epsom, Surrey, England. Beth then returned to Abbotsford and began working for Chef Michael Dicks at his catering company.
Her natural cooking ability garnered much praise from her clients and drove Beth to pursue a culinary education at Vancouver Community College. During her schooling, Beth apprenticed with Chef Iain Rennie at the Westin Bear Mountain Resort in Victoria. She also worked at Westin Wall Centre Vancouver Airport Hotel and the Oak Bay Beach Hotel in Victoria. Beth continued to work alongside Chef Rennie as Sous Chef, then Executive Sous Chef at the Delta Hotels Grand Okanagan Resort and is extremely proud to become the first female Sous Chef at the Delta Hotels Grand Okanagan Resort.
She was instrumental in the development and execution of opening OAK + CRU Social Kitchen & Wine Bar in June 2016. Beth recently resigned her roll as Executive Sous Chef to pursue a career-long dream of owning her own catering company called, Appetite Catering.
With over 10 year of experience in the Culinary Industry, Beth Ross will utilize her skill and training to create your culinary delights.
