Executive Chef, George Moutsos, brings world experience, and cooking passion to Truffles Fine Foods. After completing his Chef’s training, he went on to chef in such locations as the Fairmont Mayakoba, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler and the Tobiano Golf Course in Kamloops, to name but a few. He gained valuable cultural exposure to food and spice variety before moving to Vancouver. Having been raised in a restaurateur family, he started working with his father in the family kitchen at a very young age.
Chef George says that cooking is in his genes. With a flair for custom designing every menu and a dedication to client needs, he creates delectables from around the world, or closer to home.

One ticket (and DOXA membership) to the screening of Le Nez (The Empire of Scents)
We experience a huge majority of life through our noses. Intricately tied to emotion and memory, smell is fundamental to determining who we fall in love with, what we remember about our childhood, and how we feel about the world. Kim Nguyen’s extraordinary film Le Nez captures this most intimate of senses through the individual stories of an Italian truffle hunter, a French perfumer, and a Chinese tea expert. Even Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield pops in to talk about what outer space smells like.
Please note that we will accommodate most dietary restrictions or allergies, if requested in advance. However we will not be able to confirm the exact replacement in advance.
Only TEN (10) tickets are available for this event and are on a scale from $100 to $175 depending on the level of donation (and tax receipt) you would like to contribute to DOXA.
