JASPER, Alta. — Jamie Hussey is the new director of Food and Beverage at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. Entering his fourth year in the picturesque mountain town of Jasper, Hussey brings extensive local knowledge and culinary inspiration to his new role where he will oversee the resort’s restaurants, bars, banquets and private-dining experiences, as well as the culinary programming of the resort’s signature events.
Hussey previously held prominent positions building brand identity and food concepts as the director of Food and Beverage in local businesses and restaurants such as Terra and Aalto.
